Happy New Year! It’s been a busy holiday season. We haven’t visited any wineries recently but have plans to in the weeks to come. Of course we’ll be posting about our visits. Until then, we attended a wonderful dinner party where we enjoyed a Virginia wine.

Last Friday we joined a group of our wine buddies at our friend Susan’s house for an evening of delicious food and wonderful wines. We enjoyed some nice California and French wines but only one Virginia wine. We had a chance to enjoy a glass of the RdV. We haven’t been out to the vineyard yet but have heard lots of things about the vineyard and the wines. The RdV had a very dense color, was well balanced with dark fruit notes and velvety tannins. We enjoyed our chance to taste this exclusive wine. Thanks Stacey and Jeff! The evening was filled with food, wine, and conversation. We had a great time with our wine friends Susan, Stacey and Jeff, Mike and Paula, Paula and Gary, and Susie and Rick. We look forward to catching up with you all on the wine trail in the new year!
