Just as we finished clearing our old wood, spring arrived at Well Hung Vineyard and the buds began to burst [insert witty birds and bees pun here]. In fact, we are running about 1-2 weeks ahead of schedule which means our 2012 vintage will be in your glass shorter (barring frost, random diseases, deer, birds, Occupy Well Hung campers, and the much maligned late summer hurricanes).
We were going to wait and tell you about our most recent bottling but there is no better way to welcome the summer temperatures than grabbing a bottle of our 2011 Virginia Viognier and firing up some crab cakes. After reaching a tender bottle age of 4 days we sampled the Viognier and are confident we’ve got another winner on our hands; if we get a chance to enter it in a competition before it sells out (or we end up drinking it ourselves). The screw caps make indulging a little too convenient.
