Dinner Wines

Last night we had the 2008 Viognier from Horton Vineyards as our sipper. We had a very buttery brie with crackers. We notice its light straw color. On the nose we noted pear, citrus, and melon. In the mouth we picked up grapefruit and lemon zest as well as the characteristics we noted on the nose. We thought this was a very nice pairing with the cheese an crackers.

For dinner we had the 2008 Jen’s Jambalaya from Breaux Vineyards. We had ham steaks with green beans and mashed potatoes. The wine went well with our meal. We noted floral notes and mango on the nose and pineapple, melon, and peach in the mouth. We know this wine is a blend of whites but we’re just not sure which whites. Warren noted it was alsatian style with maybe vidal, traminette or gwurtztraminer. Either way, it was very nice. I was sad to see my last bottle go but it was the perfect pairing with our meal.

First Lady’s Luncheon

Today we went to Richmond to attend the First Lady of Virginia’s luncheon. We were recognized by her FLITE program for our contribution to promote the Virginia wine industry. It was a very elegant affair. Governor McDonnell spoke and introduced former Governor Douglas Wilder. He gave a very inspiring speech about helping others. We were presented with a certificate by Maureen McDonnell herself. We are very honored to be included with so many Virginians working hard for the state of Virginia. Here are a few photos from the event.

You won’t see any Virginia wine at a luncheon. :)

Hard to see but the fist lady is speaking in this picture.
