Virginia Mountain Vineyards was established as a vineyard in the spring of 1998 with the planting of two grape varietals (Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc) totaling 3325 vines. The operation has since grown to include an additional three grape varietals (Merlot, Traminette, and Petit Verdot) bringing the vine total to 5625 over a 9.5 acre plot. Many thanks are extended to the family and friends who have helped over the years to make the vineyard a success. For several years we operated as a vineyard, selling grapes to many nearby wineries. During this same time, we were perfecting our wine production techniques, acquiring winery equipment, and making other capital investments for the planned opening of our winery. On April 1, 2006 we officially opened to the public as a winery offering 8 different wines. Beginning in 2007 we began to release several of our full-bodied red wines, bringing the total to 11 wines. For the 2008 year, we released an additional red wine blend, brining our total offering to 12 Read more »

  • We picked up our fall allocation at the RdV Vineyards release party this afternoon.  You could not have ordered a more perfect weather; sunny with a high around 68 F, slight breeze.  The vineyard is about an hour from our house, out in Delaplane, Virginia.  They served all the wine you wanted to drink, along with a nice spread of food, for $65 e...

  • 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...

  • Today, while still in progress, is a busy one.  We started off at noon with a blind tasting at RdV Vineyards, the only Virginia winery we are members of.  I think this is the second or third blind tasting we've attended and they are quite exceptional.  The idea is that RdV puts a few of their wines against some other higher-end wines of similar ...

  • 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...

  • Pinotage is a Brady Bunch grape. It was created by enmeshing two previously unrelated grapes to create a brand new entity which possesses its own compelling characteristics. In viticultural language this is called a crossing. If you really want to get technical, a crossing results when two grapes, both grown from vitis vinifera parent seed, are ... Read More

  • Today just keeps getting better and better.  It's 65 F outside right now and a beautiful day out here in Northern Virginia.  So I got home with the Medlock Ames shipment and had it all taken downstairs to our basement wine cellar when the phone rings and it's UPS - there was another package for me.  What?  I had the full case from this shipment,...

  • I used to think I just didn't like wine, but after finding one made from my FAVORITE grape on earth, the scuppernong/muscadine that happened to be made near where I lived, I fell into a snuggly affair with that one, the Duplin Hatteras Red and decided to try a few more.  So far, the only other wine I've tried and liked enough to purchase again i...

  • I began my wine journey mining for hidden gems in little known regions along the east coast of the United States. A common response to many of the wines I shared and wrote about back then went something like this; “What, they make wine there?” In fact, wine is produced in all 50 states, but many people can count on one hand the wines they have t...
