Virginia’s Heritage commemorates 400 Years of Winemaking in Virginia
Updated Jan. 2020
Ingleside is pleased to be part of the collaborative Virginia’s Heritage wine project. In recognition of the upcoming anniversary of 400 years of winegrowing in the Americas, sixteen of Virginia’s finest wineries came together to bottle a wine called “Virginia’s Heritage.” Each winery contributed a barrel of red wine for the project, creating a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
Each collectible bottle comes in its own box printed with the 1619 Virginia Company seal. The wine label is crafted from real wood. The wine is being released in conjunction with Virginia Wine Month in October. This wine is now available in our Tasting Room for $59.95 per bottle ($54.95 for Estate Club members). No further discounts will apply on this limited-edition product and there is currently no bottle limit on purchases.
Participating wineries: Aspen Dale Winery at the Barn; Cooper Vineyards; Effingham Manor & Winery; Glass House Winery; Ingleside Vineyards; Naked Mountain; Narmada Winery; New Kent Winery; Pearmund Cellars; Philip Carter Winery; Potomac Point Winery; Rappahanock Cellars; Rosemont of Virginia Winery; Vint Hill Craft Winery; Williamsburg Winery; Winery at Bull Run.
“Dark plum aromas are dense on the nose and aided by black pepper and cocoa tones. It’s plush in feel, with black olive, tobacco and clove flavors. A warm finish with spicy oak and well-integrated tannins is smooth and attractive.”
