    "resistance is futile" - visiting Breaux Vineyards again

    Strange as it seems now, but our recent visit to Breaux Vineyards this month was our first since April 2013 when we participated in a blind Viognier tasting. Our last tasting of Breaux wines at the winery was in December 2012. I am not sure why we had not visited sooner. We have been out on Harpers Ferry Road since then and we really like Breaux wines and the staff.

      Chestnut Oak in Full Bloom

      Virginia Wine Time - - 5 readers - We always look forward to trying new wineries especially those that seem to have making quality wines at the top of the agenda. These days we frequently encounter the “events first” philosophy in which hosting weddings and parties seem to trump making wine. At Chestnut Oak Vineyard, we encountered a tasting room still in construction but good wines already in the bottle.

While these were all wonderful wines and are progressing well in the barrel, the Petit Verdot stood out to me as the winner. It has an amazing color…

Overall, Trump Winery provides a spectacular tasting experience in a beautiful corner of Virginia wine country; one that people (like the Washington Post journalist mentioned above) might miss because of preconceived notions about its owner. To avoid missing out, I invite you to Trump it. Like this: Like Loading... Related …

Our other favorite stand out was the 2013 Chardonnay ($20). Only half the wine went through malolactic fermentation; so while it has the creamy, buttery taste, it still is crisp and fruity…
