Wisdom Oak Winery; Raise your glass to peace and quiet in Charlottesville (Yes, REALLY)

A fall review from AmericanWineryGuide as I covered Wisdom Oak Winery (Formerly Sugarleaf Vineyards) in the Charlottesville area.

“As you spot the new Wisdom Oak Winery sign, planted where the former Sugarleaf Vineyards sign stood, you will find yourself traveling up a gravel, single lane road that appears to be the road to nowhere. As the trees clear and the farm house converted to tasting room, outlined by the 4 acres of vines in the background, appears, you instantly release a sigh of relief and can truly take a step back to admire the beauty of the Wisdom Oak grounds.

Owner Jerry Bias purchased the property over a decade ago then under the Sugarleaf banner, but changed the name early in 2013 to commemorate the opening of the new tasting room. The property sits at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and presents guests with gorgeous views and the opportunity to take in some of the most relaxing tranquility that Abermarle County has to offer. The terroir offers great slopes and mountain shade that helps cool the grapes from the sweltering temperatures of Virginia’s intense summers. The four acres of grapes that sit on the property consist of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and the recently added Viognier; they all contribute to Wisdom Oak’s estate bottled selections, while Petit Manseng, Petit Verdot, and Vidal Blanc sourced from local vineyards help round out the lineup. Vineyard manager and assistant winemaker Chris Harris and winemaker Romulus Pascall handle the winery’s day-to-day operations.”

First and foremost, our sincerest apologies about our absence during the last year. We have been fortunate to have a large following over the past several years that has brought in over 100,000+ readers. We want to thank all of you! We have expanded beyond Virginia, touching many places in the United States and even spun off a travel blog to cover our International journeys. So where do we go from here? Many readers have submitted suggestions of a more digital approach. Monthly review pieces versus daily postings, video production, food pairings, wine country itineraries and even a podcast.
