Believe it or not, @Back10Cellars is called Back 10 because it took 10 years to produce their first bottle of wine and they’re nestled on 10 acres. They’re also this week’s #WineryWednesday ! The husband and wife team behind Back 10 started their vineyard from scratch in Beamsville and battled fire, goats, debt and doubt to build their beautiful winery. Today, they grow Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir! They also hand pick their Riesling and use free run juice! Have you visited @back10cellars ? 📸: @back10cellars
Today on #WineryWednesday , we are highlighting @charleswineco ! Charles Wine Company is a family-owned and managed winery with a portfolio of boutique wines representing the rich diversity of California! Their mission is to “seek interesting varietals and blend them together to make wines that are authentic.” #RBTW
For today's first #winerywednesday , I'm showcasing one of my all-time favorite producers, the @keenanwinery — a family-owned, sustainable winery located in the Spring Mountain District at an elevation of 1700 feet. If you've ever joined one of my tastings, you've likely tried at least one of their fabulous wines. The estate, purchased by the Keenan family in 1974, is run today by Michael and his clever, experimental son Reilly. While the wine is a must-try, it's imperative to visit the scenic property and taste with hosts Laura or Elizabeth. Warning: They are incredibly generous during their tastings! I've said it before, but the Keenan experience is truly Napa Valley at its finest. The winery produces an estate Cab, Merlot, Cab Franc, Zinfandel, Cab/Merlot blend, and Chardonnay in addition to their Napa Valley Cab, Merlot, and Syrah. Total wine production varies between 11-13,000 cases/year. Keenan also produces "secret wines" and maintains an extensive library list. I'm a huge fan of their Mailbox Merlot, especially the library vintages (these wines can live a long time ). Check them out next time you're in Napa, or look for a Keenan bottle in local Central Market stores! . . . #NapaValley #itsfromnapa #winecountry #winetasting #winelover #winewednesday #winetime #napawine #cabernetsauvignon #instawine #visitnapavalley #winestagram #californiawine #springmountain #wineblog #vineyards #cheers #centralmarket

Located in the Hills of Hockley Valley, @adamoestatewinery is a small batch winery and this week’s #WineryWednesday ! As pioneers of the emerging cool climate region, they’ve implemented innovative growing techniques and practices like using geothermal blankets to protect their vines in the winter! Renowned winemaker Shauna White, grew up in Kelowna, BC and spent her days in her family’s vineyard. Following her passion, she’s been with Adamo Estate since the winery opened in 2014 and has put her experience to great use from growing and harvesting fruit from the region to making wines that have heart and history. With 25 acres, Adamo Estate grows 7 varieties including Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir, Riesling, Vidal, Marechal Foch and L’Acadie Blanc. Head to @AdamoEstateWinery for more information and be sure to plan a visit! 📸: @adamoestatewinery
Halfway through week one of being a virtual counselor and I have definitely deserved that glass of vino! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A few weeks ago I finally visited @bramblypark which is an urban winery that opened up this summer in Scott’s Addition, Richmond. It’s the perfect day spot to socially distance, enjoy some of their wines which are produced all over the country and hang out with friends. Make sure to make a reservation online before you go, and they have contactless ordering when you arrive to make it easy and safe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We tried their rosé, Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon. My favorite was their rosé which is actually their only wine produced in VA from Michael Shaps. Definitely check them out for your next #WineWednesday ! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #WineryWednesday #sippincville
After buying @sumaridgeestatewines in 2008, Simon Turner, and his wife Holly Bellingham, wanted others to share in the beauty of the estate. They transformed a former farm cottage into a gorgeous, secluded, five-room Lodge. Visit Sumaridge's website (link in bio ) for more information. #savesawine #jobssavelives #sipforsouthafrica #hemelenaardewines #drinksouthafrican #hemelenaarde #finewinecountry #winesofsouthafrica #60in60 #spectacularsouthafrica #spectacularsouthafricanwine #discoverctwc #homeofpinotnoir #sumaridge #hemelenaardeaccommodation #winerywednesday
Today on #WineryWednesday , we are highlighting Theopolis Vineyards ( @theopolisvineyards ) ! “Theopolis Vineyards is a small lot vineyard and hand-crafted winery located in California’s prestigious Yorkville Highlands of the Anderson Valley. It was founded by Theodora R. Lee aka Theo-patra, Queen of the Vineyards, a bold and dynamic Texan and San Francisco trial lawyer, is now bottling her own award winning wines.” #RBTW
This Wine Wednesday I am cheers-ing to all the amazing women in my life who inspire me daily. The last 6 months have been a whirlwind with a lot of major changes in my life. I feel so extremely blessed to have such an amazing community of women who support me daily and who I know I can always turn to. 🤍 Family & friendships are the most important things to me and I am raising a delicious glass of wine to them! 🍷 Tag your friends who are always there for you! ⬇️🤍
Established in 2007, @hollandmarshwineries is a family-run winery focusing on small batch, high quality wines and is this week’s #WineryWednesday ! Holland Marsh's 22 acre property is situated in a unique terroir, as it is the most fertile growing region in Canada! They grow a number of varieties including Baco Noir, Vidal, Gamay and Riesling. Recently, they’ve begun experimenting with Bulgarian and American Oak barrels, which add very unique flavours to their red wines. Have you tried @HollandMarshWinery yet? 📸: @hollandmarshwineries
#WineryWednesday is here and I’m excited to spotlight this hidden gem, @meriwethersprings . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I FINALLY visited recently and was so surprised this was my first time! It’s located right outside Charlottesville and is a great spot to enjoy wine and beer. Yes you heard that right, they make both! The wine is actually made by the same winemaker as King Family Vineyards, which is located just down the road. My favorite wines are their Vidal Blanc and rosé! They have lots of outdoor space to enjoy, so bring your own picnic and make a day of it!
Today on #winerywednesday , we are highlighting Corner 103! Corner 103 is a space that is centered around creating a unique experience where wine is explored and discussed in a relaxed and fun environment. When opening Corner 103, the founder, Lloyd Davis, wanted to “continue his track record of producing approachable, award winning wines; and demonstrate the proper way to pair wine with food!” ✨ 🍷 #RBTW
Happy #winerywednesday ! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In my last post I mentioned that @allegrettovr has a tasting room within the resort. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you stroll the grounds, you can see their grapes growing on the vines. All these wines were delicious! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My favorite was the rosé of Tannat, because I’ve never tried one before. The color was light salmon, with strawberry and stone fruits on the palate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We tasted safely outside, and it was awesome to be able to walk down the hall to our room afterwards and relax! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’re staying in Paso, you must check out @allegrettowines ! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #winetasting #winewinewine #winokristin #instawine #wednesday #rosé #roséallday #cawine #pasorobles #winery #wine
Some day I look forward to traveling around the country stopping in at many wineries, for now we are truly so lucky that Virginia offers such an amazing array of wineries. Although we've been out towards Charlottesville quite a few times, there's always the opportuniting to discover more wineries in and around the Charlottesville area. Day 1 - stop 1 started us off at Honah Lee. # #cunninghamcreekwinery #CastlehillCider #Charlottesville #ChestnutOakWinery #gabrielerauseewinery #HonahLeeVineyard #JeffersonVineyards #lovingcupwinery #thistlegatevineyard #VAWine #Wineries #Winerywednesday #WisdomOakWinery
I have a #WineryWednesday confession: I haven’t been to a vineyard since November! Almost 10 months 😔. As places eventually started to open up in phases, my job created additional restrictions that kept me from visiting the Charlottesville area. So here are pictures from my last vineyard visit at @cunninghamcreekwineryva . My daughter got to meet Crush and we thoroughly enjoyed the 2018 First Crush. They just released the 2019! #vawine #wine #redwine #winedogs #cville #monticello #virginia #palmyra #nationaldogday
Wave your wine in the air like you just don’t care! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy #WineryWednesday ! 🍷I hope you’re having a wonderful week! This past weekend I visited @rosemontvineyards , located at the Southern end of Virginia. Ever since I tried their sparkling rosé this summer, I have been wanting to visit! I met up with one of my friends who lives in Raleigh because this winery is the perfect halfway point for me coming from Richmond. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have to say this winery is STUNNING! Beautiful building and grounds! They are doing tasting flights now so we tried a couple of their wines and then got a bottle of rosé to enjoy. Of course I had to take home some of their sparkling wine. Unfortunately they are out of the sparkling rosé (probably because it’s sooo freaking good ) but their regular sparkling wine is also great! Highly recommend checking them out, you will not be disappointed 😊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you been yet?!
Love Pinot Noir and Chardonnay? Then don't miss this week's #WineryWednesday , @cloudsleycellars . The winery focuses on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Twenty Mile Bench and sources grapes from some of the best vineyards in the area - paying special attention to their individual terrior. Their wines are also exclusively crafted with wild yeast and aged in French oak barrels, so if you're looking for something new - give them a try! Who's had a Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from Cloudsley? 📸 @cloudsleycellars
Today on #winerywednesday , we are highlighting Abbey Creek Vineyard. Located in North Plains, Oregon, this winery is not only the first hip hop winery in the Northwest but it is also owned by Bertony Faustin , Oregon’s first black winemaker! 🍷 🍇 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Ladies, is Oregon on your domestic travel list? ✈️

Pour a glass of wine, we are officially half way through the week 🥂 I hope you’re having a great week! It is my first week officially on summer break and it happens to be the most beautiful weather here in CT ☀️ As we are able to go out and explore I wanted to spotlight @53rdwineryandvineyard for this weeks #WineryWednesday ! As you probably guessed, this was the 53rd licensed winery in Virginia in 1999. Crazy how much the wine industry in VA has expanded since then since there are now more than 300! This was the first winery I visited when Virginia started opening wineries and they are doing everything right in taking the necessary precautions. Lots of outdoor space to socially distance and enjoy your wine! I have done tastings here in the past and LOVE their wines, especially their Barrel Aged Rosé 🍷Be sure to check them out!
Winery Wednesday is here! 🍷Any guesses which winery this picture was taken at? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well if you guessed @veritaswinery you are correct! This was the 3rd winery I ever visited in Virginia and has remained one of my absolute favorites. I love this winery for their beautiful views, amazing wine and food options. 🍴Believe it or not many wineries around here don’t have more than just cheese and crackers so I love that they have a full menu to offer. It’s always such a fun environment and their Starry Nights is supposed to be a blast! ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are just now following along, every Wednesday for #VAWineMonth I’ll be sharing the wineries that are some of my all time favorites and inspired me to start this blog! Stay tuned!
Happy #WineryWednesday ! This week I wanted to spotlight @jamesriverwine , located about 15 minutes North of Richmond VA. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Honestly zero idea why this was my first time visiting but I was SO glad I finally did! Lots of great wines to choose from and you can do a self-led tasting or grab a glass/bottle to enjoy outside. There is lots of seating and it is very well spread out so that you feel safe. Shoutout to @sipsandtripswithpaige for the wine recommendations beforehand! We decided to go with the Pinot Gris and were so glad we did! The perfect wine to sip on outside on a summer day! Definitely check them out!! Cheers 🥂
Château Coutet is located directly in the slopes of the limestone rocks of Saint Émilion. The terroir can hardly get better. 🍇 . One third of this slope is pure limestone plateau, one third is clay soil and the lower part is sandy gravel soil. Trinity! . The most phenomenal fact is that Château Coutet is the oldest organic winery in Bordeaux. 🐴 . This winery has been around since 1599 and organic since day one. Herbicides, pesticides or artificial fertilizers have never been used for centuries.🌱 . Flower species have long since disappeared, as well as, extinct toads and salamanders.🐸 . Naturalists from all over the world will work the jack for a visit. . 60% Merlot is grown here, which comes from an almost exhausted origin of a grape variety, a much smaller berry and the only Merlot form of red juice. Unique!👏 .

Let’s play a game! NAME this winery! 🍷 I would say this winery definitely ranks Top 5 in terms of most beautiful wineries in Virginia. Every time I drive in I am amazed by the beauty here! If you haven’t been, add it to your list and opt to enjoy their full kitchen and wines, you won’t be disappointed! See comments below if I have you stumped!
Sometimes you forget what day of the week it is and #WineryWednesday turns into #WineryThursday 🍷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Oh well! 🤷🏻♀️ With the holiday weekend, I thought I would share a bunch of local wineries that have some fun happenings. I’m still up North and will be spending my weekend by the water! 🏖How will you be spending this weekend? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My suggestions if you’re looking to get out to the wineries this holiday weekend: - @chisholmvineyards is hosting their Friday sunset soirée hot air balloon tether and glow event! 🎈Definitely a bucket list item to go in a hot air balloon someday! - @keswickvineyards is hosting a red white and bluegrass event with live music and food trucks Saturday. Reservations required. 🎤 - @kingfamilyvineyards has free Sunday polo, weather dependent! Always a fun event! 🏇🏽 - @castlehillcider will have food trucks all weekend and their special cider slushies available along with their regular ciders!🍏 - @eastwoodfarmandwinery is super close to downtown Cville and a great new winery to check out! They will have their wines available as well as wine slushies and sno-slushies for your kids! 🍷
