October 2020 is Virginia Wine Month
This gives us a great opportunity
to highlight some of the many
incredible wineries we’ve visited
over the years.
We look forward to visiting these
wineries again very soon.
We are featuring Boxwood Estate Winery, located in Middleburg Virginia.
Boxwood Estate Winery is the fulfillment of a long-held dream by proprietor John Kent Cooke, former owner, and president of the NFL Washington team. An admirer and collector of French wines, particularly great Bordeaux, Cooke and his team at Boxwood are committed to making premium red & white wines in the Bordeaux tradition, but with their own, distinct Virginia expression.
Boxwood Winery is in an area steeped in Revolutionary and Civil War history, and renowned for world-famous horse farms. Today the area is also known as a wine region (Middleburg AVA), with Virginia being the fifth largest wine producing state. The Boxwood sustainable vineyards occupy 26.5 acres of the historic landmark farm, and are planted with traditional Bordeaux varietals, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc & Sauvignon Blanc, all ENTAV certified.
Be sure to join winemaker Stephen Rigby on November 19, 2020 for a virtual tasting of their red wines. Learn more about Boxwood Estate Winery here.
