The 2022 CWC Wines

Inagural First Four (Jan 2022 to late March 2022)
  • 2019 Traveling Show Cabernet Franc
    • This award-winning single varietal continues to grow in the bottle. Its true-to-form Virginia fingerprint for Cabernet Franc means green pepper notes boosted by new oak. Aged 14 months in new and old French Oak. (Wanna get technical?)
  • 2019 Lost Somewhere Petit Verdot
    • Fans of Tenacity rejoice, our first estate Petit Verdot in more than two years brings on big notes of sour black cherry and boldness that goes beyond other WR blends. Aged 14 months in new and old French Oak. (Wanna get technical?)
  • 2019 First Harvest Petit Manseng
    • Our wine club couldn’t begin without where we began. The recipe of the wine of our Waterford fruit, First Harvest has been the only wine we have made identical since its inception. A bright crisp green apple finish aided by the slightest (.5%) residual sugar gives a satisfying and complete flavor experience. Aged 5 months in stainless steel. Winner of best “Petit Manseng in Loudoun County” at 2021 Loudoun Wine Awards and Governor’s Cup medal recipient. (Wanna get technical?)
  • 2019 Matriarch Meritage (currently unreleased to public)
    • A wine that can be enjoyed now, but is still growing in the bottle, this is the latest wave in our Meritage lineup. Comprised of all-Loudoun fruit including our own grapes and grapes from neighboring vineyards, it’s a further polish of our popular annual red blend. Dedicated to a very special woman whose legacy lives on in generations of kids, grandkids, and great grandkids alike. Aged 14 months in new and old French Oak. (Wanna get technical?)

Something Borrowed: Jake Busching Wines 2017 Cabernet Franc

  • Jake was with us in the very beginning. He stood on a chair and proudly shared his first Cabernet Franc under his own label in our tasting room. His skill in winemaking is matched by his generosity to the Virginia wine and agricultural landscape. We were very lucky to be able to scoop up some of his last remaining bottles of his 2017 Cabernet Franc before its gone for good.

Something Cru: 2020 Plot Twist Viognier

  • You get it first and before the public – our first Viognier ever, and winner of a 2022 Governor’s Cup medal is deliciously waiting its coming out party, but that won’t be for several more months.
