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 »

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, ...
