Wine Club Exclusive: Virginia Heritage and Library Tasting

Date: November 17, 2018

In honor of the upcoming 400th anniversary of winemaking in Virginia (1619-2019), Philip Carter Winery is hosting an exclusive tasting for Wine Club Members only of Virginia’s Heritage.  Virginia’s Heritage is an exquisite red blend of Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc.  The wine was a collaboration among 16 premier Virginia wineries with Philip Carter donating a barrel of our estate 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon.  For more details about this historic vintage visit www.virginiasheritage.com.

 

At our exclusive tasting event, wine club members will begin by sampling various library wine spanning 10 years of Philip Carter Winery’s production.  The wines will be a mystery so you’ll have to be present to enjoy each wine specially chosen by our winemaker, Chris Nelson.  This event will be a good opportunity to meet Chris, the newest member of our team.  Chris joined Philip Carter in early May of 2018 as the winemaker and vineyard manager.  Chris is looking forward to sampling the library wines as well and will be able to provide some insight into how our library wines have developed over the years.  If you’re up for an adventure then this tasting is for you.  To cap off the tasting, each wine club member will get a glass of the Virginia Heritage (retail price $60/bottle) wine to sip and enjoy at their leisure.  Light hors d’oeuvres will also be served.  Price is $35 per member.
