Susan and John Kiers have a winning product with their Ox-Eye wines and this week they received more accolades, this time from Brian Yost at the Charlottesville-based Virginia Wine blog who writes:
The Shenandoah American Viticultural Area (AVA) doesn't have the density of vineyards that you will find in Central or Northern Virginia. Nevertheless, there are lots of great wineries in this region and they are producing wines and a few varietals that are distinct to the AVA. Ox-Eye Vineyards is one of these wineries. Since my first visit a couple years ago, I've become a huge fan.Brian's post offers good background on the beginnings of Ox-Eye as well as the refurbished historic Wharf District building where the tasting room is located. It's a good read about what I consider to be an excellent wine. Drop by and be prepared to kick back in a relaxing atmosphere ... and maybe try my favorite whites, the White Ox or Riesling. You'll be in for a treat.
