Holli and John Todhunter are passionate about life, love, wine and Italy! After years of study, research and planning Three Fox Vineyards was given birth from this passion back in 2002. Today Three Fox Vineyards sits on 50 rolling acres, very reminiscent of Tuscany or the Piemonte, in the heart of Northern Virginia’s horse country and the Mosby Heritage Area. Their love of Italian wine and food has taken the Todhunters on many trips to various parts of Italy to learn how wines are made in these different regions. The similar relaxed feel of Southern France has taken them there too. This Italian focus – with a bit of the south of France thrown in – led them to plant Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Pinot Grigio – all Italian varietals – as well as Viognier, the main white wine grape of the Rhone Valley. On estate they also grow Cabernet Franc and Merlot, both of which are grown in many parts of Italy and France. Chardonnay, Vidal, and Chambourcin are sourced from areas growers.

  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...
