Another "Wine Saturday," and some more drawings from the wine lodge looking out at the vineyards and the hills. These scenes are from Doukenie Winery, which is at the very northern tip of Virginia, just a few miles from the West Virginia border. I tasted some nice Sangiovese there. It's unusual for this variety to grow in Virginia, but they've done very well with it. They attribute its goodness to their winemaker, who is imported from Burgundy, France, as well as the grapes in their fields. Right now the fields and vines are still asleep, dreaming of summer.
