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

  • 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

  • No, I don't believe it is the same guy - based on this:Antinori responded to the inflation of the 1980s and 1990s with a frantic programme of investment in wineries and vineyards, most notably the Atlas Peak winery in California in 1985, and 325 hectares around Badia a Passignano in 1987. They also expanded into Piedmont and set up a joint ventu... 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

  • Welcome back, indeed.Ditto what Emark said.  I'm a big fan of controlled experiments. If it's unique to Corison, that should tell you.  Then you can try to figure out what is going on at that winery to cause that.When I went to Piedmont, Cavallotto was the one place we went to that openly used rotovinifiers.  I could absolutely taste the terroir...

  • Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics.  This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too.  What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ...

  • I'm kind of glad this one came back to life as I was checking in for the first time in a while.  I've learned a lot more on the barrel front during my travels. Especially in Piedmont, where barrels (botte v. barrique, to be more precise) occupy a lot of mental and emotional real estate.  Most of the traditionalists won't put their Barolo in new ...

  • This offer from Ian Cauble is looking pretty attractive, too... Winter has officially arrived here in California—temperatures are dropping, there is waist-deep snow in the Sierras, and almost every night I catch myself craving hearty cuisine and robust, meaty red wines. More often than not, this impulse leads me to a bottle of Nebbiolo. And whil... Read More

  • What's the price on those Brovia Garblet Sue bottles?  I think I need to send you a check!Believe it or not, I'm still compiling my notes from the Piedmont trip.  But I'll say that the wines that stick in my mine even now are the Barbaresco from Oddero, the Garblet Sue from Brovia, the Tre Stelle Barbaresco from Cascina della Rosa, the Monviglie...
