Anyone tried the Flying Fox, from the Shenandoah Valley yet? (Commonwealth oriented thread)

Posted by ChipDWood, Jun 23, 2010.

We grabbed both their Viognier, which is supposed to be a knockout, as well as one of their red blends (called ""Trio") that's been gathering some attention.

Anyone tried either of these?  We were told that their '08 Viognier can compete with the '08 Barren Ridge... which I highly, highly doubt- but am open to compare.

Flying Fox Vineyards

The fruit for the Viognier they produce actually comes from Ridge Run Vineyard in Stuart’s Draft- still in the valley and on the "other side of the mountain" from the more popular and prominent 'Monticello' appelation around Charlottesville.

Course, if you're into Virginia wines or want to learn about the best vino currently flying under the radar- stop by and visit our Virginia Group (now called "profile", I think) by clicking here.
