DC Wine Week

October 14, 2012

It’s DC Wine Week all week long!  So if you’re in or around the nation’s capital get yourself to one of these events asap – and of course don’t forget to tweet about it under #dcwineweek.

We’re still busy in the winery and unable to attend, but were excited to be asked to guest post for the DC Wine Week Blog.  Check it out here.

Let us know which events were your favorites!

A Taste of Bluegrass in the Blue Ridge Mountains

August 16, 2011

It’s official: Grit City Grass + Gryffon’s Aerie pork BBQ + Stinson Wine = FUN!!!!!!!

The sky was blue, the band was amazing, and the food was delish as usual thanks to our grillmaster friend Collins Huff. We highly recommended a very cold bottle of our Rose, which pairs perfectly with pork and also sweat nasty weather. That and the Sugar Hollow White were the best sellers of the day! Yum! Thanks to everyone who came out, we certainly enjoyed having you!




#WBC11 Evening at Monticello

August 7, 2011


We recently had the privilege of pouring two of our wines for thousands (millions?) of wine bloggers at their annual North American Wine Bloggers Conference. Despite it being 56726897289 degrees that evening, the event was just beautiful and so much fun! There were so many different personalities from all over the country, and some even traveled in from outside the states. I chatted with bloggers from California, Oregon, Washington, Georgia, Australia, and good old sweet home Virginia. One thing everyone had in common? Love for wine! We served our Sauvignon Blanc, which was perfectly welcomed in the sweltering heat. Also we were pouring our yummy Cabernet Franc, which had to be chilled slightly in order to avoid it boiling out of the bottle. Good times!
