Watts Roost Vineyard 2008 Chambourcin Reserve

Watts Roost Vineyard is the retirement dream turned into reality for owners Frank & Barbara Tuckwiller. Established in 1998 at the foot of Muddy Creek Mountain near Lewisburg, West Virginia, Watts Roost Vineyard is an estate winery and vineyard with 9 acres of vines.  In June of 2010, operations moved from their garage into a 3600 square foot winery with production facility and tasting room.  Primarily growing hybrids and fruit wines, Vidal Blanc, Chambourcin, Léon Millot and Noiret are just a few of the varieties grown.

Purchased from the West Virginia Mountain Heritage Arts and Crafts Festival in historic Harpers Ferry (for my Northern Virginia readers, a great opportunity to taste several WV wines), the Watts Roost Vineyard 2008 Chambourcin Reserve retails for $15.  Ripe cherry, spice and vanilla on the nose.  A medium-bodied, dry wine with abundant berry flavors.  On the label, the recommended food pairing is venison.  I couldn’t agree more.  A simple, easy drinking wine, and a great introduction to West Virginia wine.  Cheers!
