On Saturday we went to the Wine Festival at The Plains. Great Meadow is a beautiful location for a wine festival and the weather made it even more perfect. The event is always held under huge tents so even if there was a threat of rain, it wouldn’t stop anyone from tasting some wonderful Virginia wines. Besides all the Virginia wineries that attended the event, there were several food venders as well as booths full of items for shopping. And you can’t forget the Polo!
Of course we attended the festival for the wine. We stopped at many of the winery booths and tasted lots of Virginia wine. Here are some wines we made note of from the festival:
Cooper Vineyards-Chardonnay and the Petit Verdot
Loudoun Valley Vineyards-Pinot Grigio and the Vinifera Red
White Fences-Meteor Glow and the Meteor Bright Red
Bright Meadows-Rebellion Red
Fabbioli Cellars-Tre Sorelle, Rosa Luna, and the Cab Franc
Gadino Cellars-Barrel Select Chardonnay (NICE!), the Cab Franc and an extra star for the Dolce Sofia
Delaplane Cellars-Emerald Lake Viognier
Miracle Valley-Chardonnay and the Cab Franc
Aspen Dale-Mary-Madeleine’s Rose and the Rockawalkin’ Cabernet Sauvignon
Kluge Estate-the Viognier and the Blanc de Blanc sparkling
delFosse-Rose, Merlot, and the Cuvee Laurant
We always have a fun time at the festival and enjoy catching up with many of our wine friends. We encourage our readers to check out all these wines. And we hope you’ll plan to attend the next Wine Festival at The Plains. Here are a few photos from the day.
