This apricot-scented Viognier from Virginia
shows why the state has been gaining buzz as
a compelling wine destination.
What You Need To Know
Wine lover Thomas Jefferson would
be gratified by the explosion of vineyards in his home state:
Though his own efforts at growing European grapes largely failed,
vintners today have vindicated his hunch that Virginia could
produce top-quality wine. Barboursville Vineyards is located down
the road from Jefferson’s Monticello; the president actually
designed the estate’s original manor for his friend, Governor James
Barbour. The winery, though, dates to just 1976, when Gianni and
Silvana Zonin—Venetians who own 11 other wineries, mostly in
Italy—purchased the property. Winemaker Luca Pascina ferments
its reserve Viognier in steel, not oak, which keeps its fruit flavors
Honeysuckle and apricot.
Silky, round stone-fruit
flavors are fresh and bright.
