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.

We have decided to use pulp shipping inserts for majority of our wine shipments.

The diversity of Chardonnay is quite impressive, no wonder it is one of the most popular grapes grown in the world. There is something for everyone whether you prefer a light and zesty white wine or a big buttery oaked Chardonnay, or even a classic sparkling wine.
