Quick Pour: The Hague Winery 2008 Meritage Reserve

Producer: The Hague Winery Region: Chesapeake Bay Region (Virginia) / Washington Birthplace AVA Price: $28.95 Vintage: 2008 Varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot Virginia Pour House Notes: A gorgeous bouquet of cedar, smoke, candied fig, and dark fruit spreads from the nose to the palate with cherry being the standout adding subtleties of spice and leather mid-palate. Complex and intricate structure with silky smooth tannins and an ultra smooth finish that leaves luscious nuances of spice box and vanilla lingering behind.  Big bodied, aromatic, and a plethora of qualities propel this gem to the top part of my ‘Virginia Favorites’ list.   VIRGINIA POUR HOUSE RATING 89 Points

The Hague Winery; Closure to a great day in the Northern Neck

After a great afternoon at Ingleside Plantation Winery, I decided that, while I was in the area, why not try a couple of other wineries as well? The Hague Winery, formerly known as Buena Vista farm, in the Northern Neck, is set back a few hundred yards off of Cople Highway. Since 2000, it has been transformed from a 1700s era farm to the beautiful, countryside winery and tasting room it is today. Renowned Virginia winemaker, Michael Shaps, contributes his efforts in the production of their wine.     Walking into the side door of the tasting room, to the right you’ll notice a little shop filled with wine accessories, art, decorations, and your typical winery crafts. Peering out of the windows to the right are four or five tables, assembled in a line, with a spectacular view of the vineyard. To your left, a long, refinished tasting bar with …

General’s Ridge Vineyard and Winery; Some more Chesapeake in your glass

What a day Sunday was! After a long enjoyable trip to Ingleside, I decided since I was in the Chesapeake Region and had such a great experience with my last vineyard, why not see what the other local wineries are offering. First one, was General’s Ridge Vineyard and Winery, located just minutes up the road from Ingleside in Hauge, Virginia. The overall look of the property exhibited Midwestern farm characteristics with a touch of the south. The historic manor home located at the front end of the property (and available for rental), displays the rich farm history of the property with the gorgeous windmill directly in back of the home, welcoming you to the vineyard as you make your way up the gravel road to the tasting room. Along the road there is countless acres of grape growing on the property on either side. As you approach the tasting room, …
