Crush2013 is now in the record books and from most reports the whites were late and the reds were close to on time. Mother Nature certainly helped by not giving us a hurricane this harvest.
Spending time on the wine trail this October, I found most of the Tasting Rooms bustling with activity and events. Live music is becoming more the norm in many tasting rooms on the weekends. What a great way to spend the afternoon with a little bluegrass (or rockabilly, or country, or jazz) with a glass of Virginia wine. Life is good.
This time of year we also start to think about family gatherings. Let me be the first to suggest you pick “wine” as what to bring to the holiday dinner. Then call us and we’ll ship it to your family ahead of your arrival.
Just image how impressed your Mother in Law will be that you were so thoughtful and thought ahead (provided they don’t uncork it before you get there). We have three packs, six packs and the in law set (a full case of Virginia wines) especially selected for you. Give Xen a call in the office and we will get you all set up.
There is only one Virginia Wine of the Month Club and we take pride in bringing you the best Virginia has to offer. Whether for the holiday dinner, client gifts or other celebrations we are just a phone call away.
As always, thank you for letting me be a part of your Virginia wine journey.
