I was given a bottle of wine from this vineyard two years ago and was surprised by the quality. At that time I vowed to go to the winery at some point to see for myself.
Last week I did just that and the surprise continued. We did the wine tasting which was slow and deliberate with the wines being served paired to local cheeses and chocolates. It was a 45 minute experience in which we enjoyed one white and three reds..
The wine is exceptional for this part of the world. I have a wine cellar and prefer big red wine from Washington State or California. The wine here at Va La was, of course, not on the level of those big wines but I bought a case so that speaks for itself.
The wine barn is quaint and comfortable and the tasting area is clean and comfortable. The hostess was cheerful and engaging. She had an almost Bohemian quality - in the best sense of that word.
All in all I would go back - it was a pleasant break.
