Virginia Wine Month Wines

Last Saturday we continued our celebration of Virginia Wine Month by enjoying two more Virginia wines. We began the evening with some goat cheese and a baguette. To accompany our nibbles we selected the 2010 Barren Ridge Vidal Blanc. We noted orange blossom, peach, and minerality on the nose. In the mouth we detected similar peachy flavors with a mineral finish. It went very well with our cheese and baguette.

For dinner we had breaded baked chicken, pasta with parmesan cheese, and roasted veggies. The wine we selected was the 2009 Annefield Chardonnay. This elegant wine presented tropical notes and a vanilla finish. Even after the meal we were enjoying this wine. It paired beautifully with our meal and without! What have you been enjoying during Virginia Wine Month?
