Native French winemaker, Damien Blanchon, has brought his skills to bear in the production of this red blended wine named in honor of Bacchus, and the legendary celebrations held in his honor. A mélange of Chambourcin, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Tannat, the wine opens with raspberry, cedar and spice aromas and follows on the palate with silky cherry and currant flavors. Aged for 18 months in French and American oak. Pair with stuffed pork chops or grilled blue cheese burgers. Drink now through 2012.

Old House Vineyards is located in a beautifully restored 19th century farmhouse at 18351 Corkys Lane, Culpeper.

The winery is open Monday—Thursday, 1-5 PM
Saturday 11-5 PM
