Nebbiolo Reserve

The pre-eminent wine of Italy, and possibly of all red wine, Nebbiolo has distinguished itself as one of our leading varietals since our first vintage, 1998. Our style is inspired by Barbaresco in cultivation and aging, and the wine unfolds in bottle at the stately pace for which it is so greatly appreciated by connoisseurs, for the most savory pairings of meats and game.

2018 will be remembered by all Virginia growers as one of the most challenging, characterized by a mild spring with early and very fruitful bud break, followed by well above average rainfall in June and July which required extensive leaf pulling and mowing. In our district we experienced a warm and fairly dry August which allowed some good to very good ripening in whites and certain red varietals, including our Nebbiolo.
