is home to few wineries, but they are among the most productive and respected in the Virginia Wine Industry. Leading the way are Barboursville Winery (owned by Italy’s Zonin family) and Horton Vineyards. Orange County vineyards are located in the rolling hills near the towns of Barboursville and Gordonsville, at elevations close to 600 feet. The region’s climate is similar to the rest of Virginia with warm humid summers and erratic winters making varietal and trellising system choices as critical here as it is in the rest of the state. This county is located in the larger Monticello AVA and produces a number of styles of wine coming from a stunning array of grape varietals. In addition, Orange County produces award winning Viognier and Cabernet Franc, two vitis Vinifera varietals with established histories in the region. These wineries are focused on the ecological suitability of varieties, as opposed to allowing short sighted marketability dictate the cultivar selection. California and Oregon may Read more »

  • Well a scheduling snafu, and the fact that both NY football teams are in the playoff hunt, reduced turnout for this weeks blind tasting.I had to juggle the flights as well so this was a little bit of a different tasting with 2 flights of Italians varieties and 2 flights of Syrah so the break down will be a little different.In any event the small...

  • Barboursville Vineyards Rosé Blend Orange County Cabernet Blanc NV

    Snoothrank:

    I tried this at the wine luncheon at the vineyard Saturday 6/28 and am reviewing from memory, forgive the lack of detail.They served this wine cold, in a shallow glass (like the champagne glasses of the 1950s). It's a pale white wine, and looked refreshing. It was however, quite sweet, as you'd expect from a dessert wine.It was quite drinkable... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I actually tried the Barboursville Vineyards Vintage Rosé 2007 yesterday (not the 2006) at a luncheon at the vineyard yesterday.
