Food Pairings for The Williamsburg Winery Arundell Cabernet Sauvignon
A wine with a subtle balance of soft fruit character and oak nuances. This wine is fully barrel aged for 6-9 months in American and French barrels. Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with Merlot to soften the wine as well as add complexity. Soft tannins make this offering readily accessible, as an accompaniment to fowl, grilled meats, and richer pasta dishes. The Arundell family arrived in Virginia in the early 17th century, and settled on the peninsula between the James and York rivers, at Buck Roe in the precinct of Elizabeth City (modern day Buckroe in Hampton, Va.) John Arundell inherited the property from his father Peter, and leased out two parcels of fifty acres for the purpose of growing grapes. One parcel was leased to one Elias La Guard Vignerone. The second parcel was leased to Mr. James Bonall Gentleman of London, whos farm manager David Poole Vignerone of the country of France, actually lived on the property and we surmise, grew grapes. It is not known what degree of success, if any, these Gentlemen enjoyed with this early Viticultural endeavor.
