It’s time to Get Vertical (do you know what that means?) with our Cabernet Franc Vertical Tasting! And you can test out your artistic skills (with wine, natch!) or enjoy music by the fire this month as well!

Sat. Jan 16th, 2pm: Cabernet Franc Vertical Tasting!


We’re dipping into the cellar and tasting every vintage of our Cabernet Franc wines, including the outstanding new 2013 Vintner Reserve (not yet released). We will meet in our new events room, at farm tables looking out on the Shenandoah National Park and taste a flight of these wines, comparing flavors and aromas, how they’ve aged, and discussing the differences driven by weather conditions, viticulture practices, and winemaking styles. We just might also sneak a tasting of the new 2015 vintage still in production, right from the barrel. Big fun.

The very limited stock of these older vintages will also be available for sale – to add to your own cellar. Advance reservations required. Limited Seating. $35 per person (15% discount for Wine Club members). Make your reservations online here or call 540-923-4206.
