After a recent win in the Governor’s Cup competition, there was a new spotlight focused on this new venture and required a visit to see what they were all about. What they provide visitors in terms of wine quality, atmosphere, and overall experience is something that few in Loudoun County have been able to match in a long time. Take a peak at what Two Twisted Posts Winery is all about in our latest contribution to AmericanWineryGuide.
“After purchasing property nestled in the valley along Harpers Ferry Road in Purcellville in 2008, Brad and Theresa Robertson were looking for a way to provide a winery where people can get away from the city to truly relax, take a deep breath, and enjoy some wine. The couple had some orchard farming experience and decided to give growing wine grapes a try. They initially planted 3 acres of vines along their property and are expecting to add a couple more acres this spring. Currently, they grow vinifera on the property including Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and the hybrid Traminette. The attention to quality is one that they are familiar with as they use a dense planting system to reduce stress on vines, as well as cane pruning for disease prevention and to control vigor and balance. Chemicals are kept to a minimum, and natural fertilizer is used to stimulate high quality grapes.” (Read More)
“We began with the 2011 Chardonnay ($23) (the Non-Governor’s Case version), which, in my opinion, stood out as my favorite wine of the day. Smooth apple mingles with tropical aromas backed by creamy nuances that lead to a velvety smooth palate with vanilla undertones and toasty notes showing well. With a near perfect balance, this wine finishes fresh and leaves the palate coated with gorgeous creamy notes without that buttery quality. We then moved onto the 2012 Chardonnay ($23), which is the Governor’s Case winner and another crowd pleaser. Rich and creamy pear collides with tropical fruit flavors showing an elegant texture that finishes clean and crisp with hints of vanilla and toasty oak that coat the palate much like the 2011, but boasts a richer structure. There is really no mystery as to why this wine holds the accolades that it does.” (Read More)
