In 1981, as a young winemaker, I took a job in Virginia. The vision of unlimited possibilities and a few good wines eventually lured me to set my roots on an abandoned hardscrabble farm on the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Much has changed since those early pioneer days, but the excitement of winegrowing in an evolving region stays just as strong. Over the years I have joined in partnership with other like minded winegrowers. Our job is to express the forces of earth, weather and vine in the bottle. All the grapes used to make Linden wines are grown in the mountains and valleys surrounding the winery. As winegrowers we are primarily interested in how each vineyard site is expressed in the glass. Place is more important than grape variety. Our white wines have subtle minerality, verve and vibrant acidity. Our red wines show earth, depth and structure. Our wines age quite well and we often release them many years past vintage. We enjoy sharing our discoveries, successes, and heartaches as each new vintage Read more »

  • Today is Sandra's 54th birthday - one more year until she can retire at 55 (well, until the beginning of Nov 2015).  We celebrated by doing a few wine tastings with my visiting sister Carol and her husband Rich (from Oregon) out in the north-western part of Virginia.  The two wineries were Linden and then Chateau O'Brien.  Our favorite wine at L...

  • In a world where extremes are becoming the paradigms for perfection its a little surprising that one doesn’t hear much of the wines of Saxony. Strike that. One doesn’t hear anything about these wines. And that is not surprising because the production is tiny and the wines almost all consumed locally. But you should be hearing about these wines, ...

  • I’m often asked what my favorite wines are. Just today I was asked what “Which wine would an expert like you suggest for a hot summer?” No fooling. I replied “I'd drink a white wine, something light and crisp like Assyrtiko from Santorini in Greece, Vinho Verde from Portugal, or Vernacchia or Orvieto from Italy.” All great choices and certainly ...

  • DM - Thanks for the info on the Claret wines - I heard something similar to that on one of the wine tours we had in Virginia (it was likely to have been Linden).  And that Navarro is quite nice.  We found that winery on our first tour of Somona / Napa / Anderson Valleys back in 2012 (http://www.bigal-computers.net/wine-country.php).  The owner g...

  • V-V - We haven't been to The Wine Cabinet yet.  It appears to be near the Reston Towne Center, a place we've dined at several times in years past.  I was just a few miles away from there last night.  One of our company's buildings was in Reston so I used to be up there more often.  They since relocated to the Sterling area and my job had moved d...
