Established in 1999, Kluge Estate Winery and Vineyard is one of the East Coast's most prestigious wineries. The winery is tucked into Carter's Mountain on the edge of the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains in Charlottesville, Virginia. Kluge Estates Winery & Vineyard's 900 acres are located on the same ridgeline of the birthplace of American viticulture, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello. Combining meticulous winemaking practices and world talent with a genuine love of the land and support for the Virginia wine community, Kluge Estate is capitalizing on the region’s potential to create world-class wines. We are passionate about wine, food and the enjoyment of the natural beauty that abounds us and invite you to visit our tasting room and to purchase our wines online. The origin of Virginia winemaking began with the 1607 Jamestown settlement, when the first Virginia wine was produced in 1609 from native grapes. Despite this promising start, winemaking in the New World was far more of a challenge than anticipated, evidenced by two centuries of frustration in producing wine. Virginia is developing into an influential and important U.S. winemaking region with continued dedication to quality and growth. The future of wine production in Virginia is looking brighter than as wines produced in the vineyards and wineries of the Commonwealth have gone on to win national and international acclaim with the promise of more good things to come in the future.

This 100% Chardonnay, fortified apéritif is an original! Naturally sweet Chardonnay grapes are fortified with Virginia-distilled brandy, and then aged for six months in Jack Daniel’s® barrels to develop complex and unique spicy aromas that are truly all-American. There are deep, fresh aromas and flavors of pear, white peach, and citrus, with notes of licorice, vanilla, and roasted almonds. This refreshing and full-bodied apéritif is a wonderful match for rich appetizers such as foie gras, or paired with desserts such as chocolate fondue, ice cream, or sweet fruit pie. Best when served very cold or on the rocks.
