Tuscany in Virginia – Three Fox Vineyards

A little taste of Tuscany right in your own backyard! – Three Fox Vineyards — A return to a favorite!

“Take in the beautiful rolling hills and flower gardens from our tented al fresco terrazza, brick patio, creek-side picnic areas, hammocks, and table in the sky, or play bocce ball on our two vine-side grass courts. It’s always La Dolce Vita at Three Fox Vineyards!”

Three Fox offers a plethora of wine events, festivals, entertainment and a unique Vintner’s Circle and  award-winning wines. The 2012 Alouette Cabernet Franc: Winemaker Notes: “Our 100% estate Cabernet Franc is loaded with black cherry, berry, roasted espresso bean, and hints of mocha. Can be enjoyed now or be laid down for 10 – 15 years with proper cellaring. Excellent with a juicy steak, a fine cigar, dark chocolates, or for relaxing sipping just by itself.”

Always a favorite!
