The Pleasure of Linden Vineyards

“In my opinion, the world’s best wines are “vins de terroir”. They are expressive of a place and a time rather than a grape and a process. If the terroir is not good, or poorly exploited, the winemaker is relegated to make a “vin d’effort” (a wine of effort). This involves varying degrees of manipulation in the cellar, which can make a correct, serviceable wine, but a wine without soul or a story to tell.”-Jim Law

Linden Vineyards, located in the Shenandoah Valley of the Blue Ridge Mountains is what a truly authentic vineyard is about – the terroir, vines, and wine.  Pair that with a tranquil and beautiful landscape and you have the enjoyment of the total wine experience. We loved our whole experience from the regular and reserve-cellar tastings to the light fare, beautiful interiors, tasting room and landscaped grounds. The Cellar Reserve tasting offers generous selections of the best of Linden Vineyards by a knowledgeable and well-versed wine server.  It is a place of romantic ambience.

The Linden experience speaks to the true wine lover and why it known as the “darling of wine critics.” Linden’s Case Club requires a case purchase of wine to enjoy the decks and landscaped grounds which is a pleasure indeed.  Our favorites:  2005 Late Harvest Vidal, 2006 Hardscrabble Red, 2011 Avenius Chardonnay.  Our case choices:  2011 Seyval, 2011 Avenius Chardonnay, 2005 Late Harvest Vidal, 2008 Late Harvest Vidal, 2011 Red, 2010 Claret, 2006 Hardscrabble Red.  Visit Linden Vineyards online: Linden Vineyards
