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

  • Earlier this year I was able to spend a couple of weeks in Piedmont. Of course my mission there was to asses the upcoming 2010 and 2011 Barolo and Barbaresco wines, an article which is nearing completion, but today I wanted to focus on wines that are more appropriate to the season. While I love Nebbiolo based wines , they are not necessarily an ... Read More

  • The expected price ranges quoted are for the lot-quantity of bottles mentioned, as with any auction. For popular bottles, bids may break through the forecast ceiling, however. Certainly has happened a lot in recent years for Bordeaux and Burgundy lots as Chinese and similar nouveau-riche excess monies have focused on a narrow range of 'prestige'... Read More

  • Just got this from Adam Lee. Meeting up with eMark and Foxall Monday for dinner. Should we change venues and do this? Not at all familiar with what Virginia has to offer. Hey All, Not sure if this is the proper place to post this, but wanted to invite all of you in the Santa Rosa area to a tasting of Virginia wines that we are hosting next Monda...

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • California, the land of sunshine, free spirits, and big wines. Right? Yes, of course, all that is true but today we are seeing that free spirited attitude change the paradigm for wine production. Some might say that we are witnessing a return to a different style of wine. Fresher, lower in alcohol and having more in common with wines produced se... Read More

  • Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

  • Many of us think of Chianti as an expensive, everyday wine but of course the truth of the matter is much more complex than that, and it just got even more complex. Adding complexity where it is not necessary seems to be something the Italians excel at, and with the introduction of Chianti Classico Gran Selezione they may have just done just that... Read More

  • In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More
