Pollak Vineyards is a small family-owned winery founded in 2003 on a 98 acre site west of Charlottesville. Today twenty-five acres are planted in French vinifera with the intent of of producing estate grown wine that has the finesse and balance of traditional French wines. The more than 16,000 vines are hand-tended to achieve the best fruit. In the winery, many wines are made in small lots to control the process and and carefully coax the best fruit characteristics and blend of tannins. French oak is used for aging. A new winery opened in May 2008. It is spacious inside for production and tastings, and it has a large verandah and windows to showcase views of vineyards, pond and adjacent mountains. – Description from ChipDWood

    Snoothrank:

    Faint nose. Decent mouthfeel with an appropriate level of acidity, but a hollow palate overall. Read More

    Wine review by sfquixote


  • Yes, it is late. To pour fine wine, to serve great food, and to present it all with zero notice but utter presence. I did that tonight for 94 guests at the Swedish Embassy. I won't tell you the wines we served. Better than most for such an event. I'm still a little amazed that my tasting at Pollak delivered the Durant White blend that I'm n...

  • Was really taken aback by this Vineyard's Petit Verdot from 2008. Their 2007 Meritage was also VERY nice... but not quite in the same league as the '08 Petit Verdot. It's a whopper.

  • Would love to chat with new people about wines from different areas.  I'm from Virginia and our region is lately becoming very adept at producing great wine.  I live in the midst of a large cluster of vineyards and used to work at Sugarleaf (GREAT wine there)  and I really respect the process and hard work it takes to produce a great wine.  Love...
