Rappahannock Cellars was among a select number of Virginia wineries to have its wine poured for the 1,200 guests. Our 2006 Meritage was served at the Virginia Wine Station during the dinner reception.

The RAMMY awards ceremony is held annually to recognize the best restaurateurs, chefs and food service industry employees in the Nation’s Capital. Because of the combined efforts of these professionals, Washington, DC is recognized as a major global gastronomic destination.

John took a moment to evaluate our wine and was pleased with Virginia’s representation at the event.

Rappahannock Cellars is recognized as one of the top wine producers in Virginia, as exemplified by its motto, Revolutionizing Virginia Wine.
