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

While web articles and top ten lists provide a quick and easy way to digest wine knowledge, there exists a panoply of skilled authors who have dedicated their time and talents to unearthing wine magic in long-form, highly researched...

  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • I know I've been about as active as GDP around these parts lately, so it's a bit lame to show up for some shameless self-promotion, but I'm embrioled in a little blogger contest that could result in a trip to Umbria for the Sagrantino harvest and I'd love for you to check out my article and, if you are so inclinced, give it a like/tweet/share.Wo...

There was some talk of Limerick Lane (has a nice ring to it) on here recently, I believe Mark has some of the wines.

  • One wine-loving filmmaker is doing his part to promote artisanal winemaking. Earlier this week, The New York Times film critic Ben Kenigsberg reviewed “Natural Resistance”, a film by directors Jonathan Nossiter and Paula Prandini which follows the natural-wine movement in Italy. “Mr. Nossiter's main point is that traditional farming methods have...

  • 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
