The Vineyards and Winery are located on the pre-Revolutionary estate, "Waverly", three miles south of Middleburg, Virginia in the rolling hills of northern Fauquier County. Construction on the manor house, now registered as a Virginia Historic Landmark, was begun in the mid-18th century, around 1755 or so. It was nearly complete in its present form by the late 19th century. Allowed to fall into disrepair in the early 1900's, it was fully restored in 1942 and the property operated as a dairy farm until 1973, when the winery was established. – Description from Dragac

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

  • Agreed on Riserva, and non-Riserva. I'm not really as interested in the extra aging or official qualifications, just that if the producer is deciding to bottle a regular and a riserva, the riserva is typically a better, or more highly regarded wine due to the cru, blocks within the cru, barrel select, etc. They all have their story I'm sure, and...

You can decant a young wine t... Read More
