Malones of Manassas features a great list of signature drinks that helped them win two of their 2017 Virginia Living awards for best bar AND most creative cocktail menu!
Lake Anna Winery is fully self sufficient – no part of their wine making process is outsourced, including bottling.
We were presented with cheesecake with the premise that the wines will pair well (aka taste better). The fruit wines needed no help!
Cobbler Mountain Cellars ciders are 6.8%-7% ABV which is a nice volume for something so sweet and easy to drink.
If you are able to visit James River Cellars Winery, please share a photo or two of that new tasting room, and let me know your thoughts about the Reserve Chardonnay and Monitor v. CSS wines.
I was very impressed with this winery and I hope they’re taking good care of the winemaker because these wines have topped my list, this is mind-bogglingly good stuff! Go visit New Kent Winery, but save me some!
The tasting room and views are worth the visit, so head out and grab a Wintertime White, sit on the deck, and enjoy some good company.
Supposedly, this is the biggest winery in Virginia. Their Governor’s White sells 150,000-180,000 bottles – excuse me? Yup! 150,000-180,000 bottles per year accounting for 30% of their sales.
The “road” to the winery is more of a gravely path than a road, and there are absolutely no conveniences nearby so be sure and stop at the bathroom before you venture in.
Rik Obiso LOVES his business. He had injured his leg that day, but insisted on hobbling around on those crutches making sure the tasting bar was cared for while his employees prepared for a party.
