VA Heritage Blend

VA Heritage Blend

The Blend

The vision for Virginia's Heritage included the invitation to Virginia's finest winemakers to contribute a barrel of their best red Bordeaux-style varietal wine, with the requirements that the grapes be 100% Virginia sourced and of the 2016 or 2017 vintage. Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot wines from 16 of our most celebrated wineries were blended together in 32 Virginia oak barrels stored at Effingham Manor and Winery in Nokesville, Virginia.

Bottling

10,000 bottles of Virginia's Heritage wine have been bottled at Effingham Manor and Winery, with each representing one of the 10,000 grapevines brought to Virginia by the Virginia Company 400 years ago.

Commemorative Packaging

Virginia's Heritage wine's unique packaging reflects its Colonial roots with labels printed on thin sheets of birch wood. The wine is packaged in a Virginia-made commemorative box surrounded by ribbon shavings of the same birch wood. The box cover label is a representation of the 1619 Virginia Company seal.

Availability for Purchase

The limited-edition Virginia's Heritage wine is available for purchase here at The Lady Pearly online fine wine retailer.

The shape of the wine glass plays an important role in how we experience wine. That makes choosing the right wine glass the first step toward enjoying a new bottle. Overall, white wine glasses tend to have smaller bowls than those for reds. This helps keep the temperature low and preserve the aromas of the wine. There’s a shorter distance from the wine to your nose, as well, to make sure you don’t miss the subtler notes. The best white wine glasses are also stemmed, since holding the glass at the bowl will raise the wine temperature as you drink. Here are seven of our favorite sets of white wine glasses.

Are There Really Carbs in Wine?

If you’re the type of person that likes to have a glass of wine with dinner, or when you’re hanging out with friends, or any time at all, you want to know what it’s all about, right? You want to know if it’s good for you, bad for you or some form of indifferent, and one of the ways you may judge that is by how many carbs in wine are there. You may have heard that wine is low-carb, but there’s a big difference between low-carb and no-carb. So what does it mean?
