Best of Virginia Wine Program Expands With Two New Offerings at Early Mountain
February 21, 2013
At Early Mountain, we are proud of the growing wine community within Virginia and it is a core part of our mission to showcase the established winemakers who have crafted our region's world-class wines. We are pleased to welcome two esteemed Virginia wineries, RdV Vineyards and Glen Manor Vineyards as the newest addition to the Best of Virginia program curated here at Early Mountain. The Best of Virginia program works to increase awareness and build market demand for Virginia wines across the United States and globally.
This curated selection of wines in the program is a rewarding way to elevate, celebrate and champion the finest Virginia wine. Wines from RdV and Glen Manor will be showcased alongside the partner wines already featured in our tasting rooms at Early Mountain. We invite our guests to sample flights of their bottles,along side those of Ankida Ridge, Barboursville, Breaux, Chatham, King Family, Linden and Thibaut-Janisson.
Both RdV and Glen Manor have received numerous accolades for their signature wines. Led by Rutger de Vink, RdV Vineyard has taken on the challenge of creating a Virginia Bordeaux-style wine and thrived. His 2009 Lost Mountain received 18 of 20 points by Jancis Robinson, Master of Wine. Glen Manor Vineyards' 2009 Hodder Hill Meritage, crafted by winemaker Jeff White, was recently awarded the 2012 Virginia Governor's Cup, praised for its "dark and refined flavors" heavily featuring Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. We invite you to stop by our tasting room to sample the wines from our newest partners in the coming weeks and celebrate the best wines from across our region.
