It was a rainy Mother's day in 1998 when we discovered the 75 acres and abandoned farm house at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Patrick, Allyson, Brittany,Ryan and Liam Kearney With the help of family, friends, and a local grape grower, we soon began working to transform the property into Old House Vineyards. Years later, the formerly overgrown alfalfa fields are now lush vineyards, producing grapes for our first production and bottling of five wines.The 1800's farm house has been restored to an inviting gathering place for the enjoyment of good food and wine. We couldn't have imagined years ago the amount of labor, or fun that would be involved in bringing this venture to life.We look forward to sharing the fruits of our labor with you at Old House Vineyards in Culpeper, Virginia – Description from Alejandro

  • Friuli (or more properly Friuli Venezia Giulia) lies in Italy’s northeastern corner. Protected from the northern winds by the Austrian and Slovenian Alps, Friuli’s climate is tempered by the Adriatic. The winemakers of this area have a reputation of being forward thinking and producing excellent white wines -- reds account for just under 40%. Tr... Read More

  • Okay, I get to take two quick trips this month.  First, we go to San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, and Cambria (more or less in that order).  We have one night in Pismo Beach that we can go out for dinner, and we can do a very limited amount of wine tasting because we will have the kids.  So, where do we have dinner in Pismo?  If we eat out in Cambr...

  • I once, a few years back, almost pulled the trigger on a real estate purchase in the hills back behind the Big Sur coastline. Was reminiscing on that today, and wondered why I never hear about wine from that area. Is it because I'm so far away and out of touch and there actually are barrels and barrels of wine being made there, or because the cu... Read More

  • We tried a $20 French Rose last night (Michel Chapoutier Bila-Haut) while visiting my wife's parents (our weekly Wednesday dinner where we bring the meal and they provide a salad).  Picked this one up at the local Whole Foods to accompany some Thai food (not spicy for her parents) and it was decent, although not chilled.  I was happy to find one...

  • Good on you for giving the box a shot.  There are actually a few good winemakers trying it out.  But we need tasting notes!GregT would probably argue that PN should have lots of Syrah, right up until there's no room left for the PN.  I had a wine from Chamisal/Domaine Aflred years ago called Da Red that was a blend of the two.  It was fine for t...

  • Gearing up for a whirlwind tour of the who's who of Nebbiolo producers in Piedmont, I realized I would be meeting quite a few women. Nine of my 18 visits would be with or include women.  This struck me. In one generation, many of Piedmont's cellars have transitioned from conservative, male-dominated dominions. Whereas women who worked with the f... Read More

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • We finally got the news that we are approved for our planning permit.  Now comes the really trying part:  building permits, contractors' estimates, dislocation, refinancing, and dealing with the neighbor who tried to stop the project and who will harass the contractor.  But it's official:  I get a basement with room for a real cellar with temper...
