We were presented with cheesecake with the premise that the wines will pair well (aka taste better). The fruit wines needed no help!

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.
If you’re looking to purchase a winery go buy this one and let me know so I can come compare the new management!
This area is referred to as the “buckle of the bible belt”. MountainRose does pick-and-eat events in mid summer. They plant roses at the ends of the rows of grape vines to help determine disease, blight, etc. All these cool little stories are probably the reason I missed what grapes I was drinking.
