Wild Acre 2017
Gold Medal Winner
Virginia Governor's Cup 2023 - Gold Medal Winner
Introducing, Wild Acre 2017, our first Tannat and Cabernet Franc blend! With this first vintage we wanted to showcase our vineyard, its Monticello terroir and the mix of clay and loam soils that combine for great wine balance. It is the loam that defines the depth for this premium red wine blend, with its subtle full body, rich tannins and deep notes of spice. 24 months of oak-aging give this wine the spice-driven character that will let it age gracefully.
On the label, the aerial photo is literally 50 yards from our Tasting Room. It shows the ‘Wild’ natural touch of our surroundings and the ‘Acre’ of vines you can see from our veranda.
We hope you enjoy this wine as much as we have enjoyed creating it!
