Our Guests' Pick of the Month
Guests who toured this summer have voted Wintergreen Winery their winery pick of the month. Located in Beech Grove, Virginia, just below the Wintergreen Resort (though not affiliated), Wintergreen, which opened in 1992 and which Jeff and Tamara Stone purchased in 1998, is producing one award-winning wine after another. Their Cabernet Franc just won double gold at the Finger Lakes International Competition, and their Black Rock Reserve Chardonnay has won more awards than any other Central Virginia wine over the last ten years. On the white side, they also feature Viognier (full mouth, great acidity, lively minerality and that little hint of spice on the finish) and Petit Manseng (intense tropical flavors with just a touch of residual sugar to balance the acidity). Other reds include Chambourcin, Brents Mountain Merlot (cherry, chocolate, leather) and their signature red, the Black Rock Red Reserve. Wintergreen also has the best gift shop in the area, providing you the opportunity to do your Valentine's shopping!
