John’s April Pick of the Month

By Posted on Apr 22 2010 | By





Sudha and Pandit Patil realized a long held dream when they opened their winery in the fall of 2009.   Their 2008 Viognier is representative of Virginia’s up and coming grape. Vinified in stainless steel and aged in French oak, this light straw colored white offers delicate and crisp notes of lemon, melon and citrus. Pair this summer white with lemon shrimp orzo and a spring salad. Drink now through 2012.

Narmada Winery is located at 43 Narmada Lane, Amissville. The winery and its stunning tasting room overlooks meticulously kept vineyards offering elevated views of Rappahannock County’s rolling countryside. Plan on spending time on their spacious deck while enjoying the views and wines. The tasting room is opened Friday and Saturday, 11 AM to 6 PM during the winter; and Friday, Noon till 7 PM, Saturday 11 AM till 7 PM and Sunday, Noon to 6 PM during the summer months. (540) 937-8215. www.narmadawinery.com
