If you’re looking for a chance to get out and have a Well Hung wine experience, we have a couple opportunities coming up for you!
This Friday and Saturday, June 29-30, we will be at the Cork & Pork BBQ and wine extravaganza in Covington, Va. We haven’t been to this event before, but it sounds like a delicious combination. Join us in downtown Covington from 5 – 9 on Friday evening, and Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Also down the road- on July 21-22 we will once again be set up in Fishersville at the gorgeous Daylily & Wine Festival 2012. Saturday, July 21, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., and Sunday, July 22, noon – 5 p.m., at Viette’s Farm and Nursery.
On September 29, in Troy, Va, we are participating in the Fluvanna County Wine Festival. This is another new festival for us, but we heard it’s a fun one. And it looks like we’ll be pouring with good company.
And if you aren’t already, keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter!
See you out there! Cheers!

We’re gearing up for a slew of summer festivals, starting with a biggie: Vintage Virginia. Vintage Virginia is, from what I repeatedly hear, epic, and we were thrilled to be invited to attend. The first weekend in June, 2nd and 3rd, in Centreville at the Bull Run Regional Park Special Events park, we, and (from the last time I scrolled) 36 other local vineyard and wineries will be giving tastings, selling all kinds of wine and merch, and, I’m sure, meeting and mingling with many fine Virginia wine enthusiasts. Hope to see you there!

First, I want to say hello to all of the many fantastic people we have met at festivals so far this year. We were pretty busy right out of the gate in 2012, but things are slowing down a little bit as spring arrives and our efforts turn to the grape-growing instead of the (much loved) grape-consuming. But that’s not to say we won’t be out there meeting, greeting, and pouring! Here are the two events we have scheduled for the month of April:
Friday, April 6th – We will be pouring our wine for the “Our Common Landscape” opening, a First Friday event at the WVTF and Radio IQ Studio Gallery at 216 West Water St, in Charlottesville, from 5-7. I’ve never poured at a First Friday, but I’ve attended plenty, and they’re a blast. And in addition to seeing many of you there, personally, I’m looking forward to hearing our local DJs say who’s providing wine for the event on air all afternoon with a straight face. Should make for great radio!
Saturday, April 28th – The Fork & Cork festival in Blacksburg. We had fun at the Fork and Cork last year, but didn’t quite anticipate how large the crowd was going to be. This year we’ll be back with even more of our fine Well Hung pourers in tow, so let’s hope for short lines and long tastings. The Fork and Cork is great though, because even when you’re not tasting, something incredible to nibble on is close at hand.
That’s all we have lined up for April so far. Check back though- we have a lot of festivals and events as we get closer to summer, and if anything pops up on short notice, we’ll post it here. And on Facebook. And Twitter.

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.

The calender claims it’s still January, but, much like the central Virginian weather, things are really heatin’ up at Well Hung Vineyard. Last week we finished bottling the 2011 Blush, and ladies and gentleman, we can’t wait to get it to you. It’s like a summer sunset in a bottle.
The 2011 Well Hung Blush has some fun features- a redesigned label, a lighter EcoSeries bottle made of 50% recycled glass, manufactured with a 29% smaller carbon footprint, and, probably most exciting for y’all, screw caps, so you can enjoy it [responsibly!] anywhere without having to track down that corkscrew.
The new Blush won’t be in stores for about a month still, but it will make its debut in just over two weeks at the Virginia Wine Showcase in Crystal City, February 18th and 19th. The 2009 Blush went just a little too fast; we’re hoping that the 207 cases o’ ’11 that we just finished will allow everybody to get their fill!

We’re very pleased to be kicking off our 2012 as an exhibitor in the 7th annual Virginia Wine Showcase, February 18 and 19 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia. We haven’t had too many opportunities to bring our goods to this part of Virginia, so to all those Well Hung winos in the DC and Maryland area – this is a great chance to see us! Come taste our full line of varietals; all of our wine, clothing, and miscellaneous Well Hung emblazoned objects will be available for sale. We will have fantastic company, with 17 other quality Virginia vineyards, as well as a smattering of local artisans. Get your tickets today and we’ll see you in February!

We’re swelling a bit with pride over here at Well Hung Vineyard. The results of the International Women’s Wine Competition were announced today and Well Hung Vineyard’s 2010 Virginia Viognier won a gold medal! Goooooold! We’re absolutely thrilled to have the quality of our wine recognized by such an esteemed group of women and wine enthusiasts.
Cheers everybody, and have a fantastic Thanksgiving. (Remember earlier when I said that our Viognier goes great with Turkey? I hope you have a bottle in the cellar somewhere! Or order a bottle online now and have it on hand for one of the other significant holidays we have comin’ right up!)

We’re finally rounding the bend into that holiday season / gift buying / family wranglin’ stretch. Well, here at Well Hung Vineyard, we’d like to make things a little easier for ya- on December 10th, pile the family into the car and head out to the Farm Bureau Center at Meadow Event Park, just outside of Richmond, in Doswell, Virginia. There will be gifts to be bought, local, specialty foods to be consumed, and, of course, we’ll be there, with our wine and goods, helping you get a jump on that holiday cheer. The festival’s site claims that they’re limiting the number of tickets sold to 5,000, so you’ll want to get your tickets well in advance. (How about right now!?)
I’m going to straight-up copy and paste this from their site, but here are some of the fun things you can expect at the festival:
-Meats direct off the farm
-Plus, 15 Virginia wineries !!!!!!!!
Hope you can make it out!
Virginia Food & Wine Festival
EVENT DATE: Saturday, December 10, 2011
LOCATION: Farm Bureau Center at Meadow Event Park (off the Kings Dominion exit on 95) – only 20 minutes from Richmond or Fredricksburg
