Favorite Wine: Petit Manseng white and Petit Verdot red
It has been two years since visiting AmRhein's beautiful setting near the Blue Ridge Parkway and four years since my last written overview. Normally you find the friendly husband & wife owners operating the tasting room, but I lucked out in coming very early in the morning and finding Seth McCombs, the vineyard's locally groomed vintner. Here you will find a nice cross section of grape varieties grown on 40 acres at unusually high east coast 1,800' to 2,600' elevations. Enough grapes are grown for approximately 10,000 cases of wine, but AmRein uses grape selections for 2,500 cases and sells the remaining grapes to other wineries. In past vintages I found Viognier, Traminette and Aglianico wines, but instead this year I was treated to a handsome selection of very reasonably priced Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Vidal Blanc and their gang buster Petit Manseng whites. Reds were limited on this visit to a bit more pricey Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and my favorite from this winery, a rich Petit Verdot. A few other 'eclectic' fruitier tasting wines are produced to round out their offerings. RV Harvest Host members will be delighted to find this comfortable, mountain destination vineyard setting.

I returned to this winery after being gone for more than ten years. I'm glad to report that it has improved. Try the Petit Manseng, very well suited to Virginia's climate. Their Chambourcin is quite good as well. They no longer make a Petit Verdot single variety, but are considering doing that again. I hope they do. It was very good.

Favorite Wine: Petit Verdot
I actually used to live close to this winery in Virginia, and it was always a treat to take people to. The mountain scenery is beautiful and in my opinion their wine is the best in the area. I'm not sure if the still make it, but their Chambourcin was well made, however their cream of the crop is definitely their Petit Verdot - rich, creamy, dark and beautiful.
