Although many people daydream about starting their own business, very few have the courage to do so. As anybody who has done it will tell you, it takes more than a great idea to become a success. In the case of Well Hung Vineyard, a boutique winery based outside Charlottesville, VA, it took three charismatic and interesting women, one vintner, and years of hard work to bring to life a unique concept they’d kicked around for some time—and mostly in jest.
Well-balanced, very aromatic and tropical on the nose but dry and refreshing as you gulp it down happily in the summer heat, it was also one of the closest things to Rhône Viognier I tried all weekend. Well-defined and quite pleasant, it goes well with charcuterie, smoked fish, and spicy Asian food. 20% of the wine is aged in oak—but I couldn’t have told you that without reading it. Recommended. RC
