About the Virtual Tasting

Joyce and Stephen Rigby, the wife (vineyard manager) and husband (winemaker) team at Boxwood Winery in Middleburg Virginia joined John Sporing, the founder of A Life Well Drunk for a virtual tasting on May 28th, 2020.

Did you miss the live tasting? No worries, watch the video here:

As part of this tasting, we tasted the inaugural vintage of Sauvignon Gris.

On May 28th at 6 PM we sipped and discussed three wines:

  • 2019 Boxwood Sauvignon Gris
  • 2019 Boxwood Sauvignon Blanc
  • 2019 Boxwood Rosé

A special three pack of these wines has been created for this tasting. The three-pack contains the rosé and sauvignon blanc in 375ml (half) bottles (perfect size for tasting) and a 750ml (full) bottle of the sauvignon gris. Of course, you can upgrade all to full bottles. Check out Boxwood’s website to order wines:

We look forward to seeing everyone again soon in person, until then we hope to see you at the tastings, even if you do not have the wines!
