We have also been honored to represent the industry in several national tastings, with really great and fun results:

Virginia Wine Summit, bringing together numerous top wine writers to learn, successfully about us little ol’ Virginia winemakers. Our 2010 Petit Verdot represented the Commonwealth. Read about it here.

Judgment of Virginia , recreating the famous Judgement of Paris blind tasting of France vs. California 25 years ago, when California’s victories put it on the international wine map, as made famous by the movie Bottle Shock. This time it was Virginia as the new upstart grape farming region, vs. France and the rest of the world, Our 2010 Signature Viognier represented Virginia, pretty darn well PS.
