It's About the Wine - and the Critics Agree... Voted Best Winery in Virginia

2016 Ameritage

2010 ameritage best virginia wines

Done in a smooth Bordeaux-style, Pearmund Cellars continues its tradition of using the five classic Bordeaux grape varietals to have one finished product.  Aromas of warm bramble preserves, with a touch of toasted oak, red cherries, and warm spice envelop the senses.

2016 Old Vine Chardonnay

2013 old vine chardonnay best virginia wines

Our 2016 estate wine provides the crisp tartness of green apples, vanilla custard, and lemon zest, with hints of Asian pear and hazelnut. Flavors of green apple, citrus and vanilla are found in this medium bodied, well balanced wine with a subtle oak finish. One hundred percent malolactic fermentation sur-lie style Chardonnay aged 9 months in French Oak gives this wine a hint of butter and softness on the palate.

2016 Viognier

2016 viognier best virginia wines

The state grape of Virginia! Wonderful hints of white peach, gardenia and honeysuckle highlight this award winning wine. Stonefruit and hints of Vanilla, honeydew, and lychee flavors linger on the long, soft finish. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, followed by 8 months of aging in neutral French oak and Acacia wood, sur-lie style.

2016 Petit Verdot

2014 petot verdot best wine in virginia

A luscious wine with 9 months in American Oak, bringing out black raspberries, cassis, earthy wood, and spice on the nose. Big flavors of jammy fruit with nutmeg, anise, cinnamon, and caraway can be found, rounded out by the tannins, giving it a hearty mouth feel and long finish.
