Something for everyone - Maggie has two ros é s!
Just in time for summer, Maggie is releasing her new dry 2017 Rosé and limited release 2015 Fortissimo - a bold red blend of Petit Verdot and Tannat!
Maggie's dry Rosé is produced with red grapes Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon, which were crushed and allowed to remain in contact with the skins just a few hours. Try Maggie's dry Rosé with this recipe for Toast Nicoise!
The new wines join Maggie's 2017 Sunset Sonata, an off-dry rosé blend of a white grape, Petit Manseng, and a red, Merlot.
DockDog Wild Card Event June 29-July1
Join us at the Wine Caves pond June 29 through July 1 for the DockDogs National Wildcard Firecracker Splash competition.
Dock jumping is a dog sport in which dogs compete in jumping for distance or height from a dock into a body of water. 
Chesapeake DockDogs , the local chapter of the premier canine aquatics competition, built a regulation 40-foot dock at the Wine Cave pond specifically for jumping competitions.
Our LabFest Weekend is July 14-15.

Plus, you receive a free tasting OR glass of wine for yourself and a guest every time you visit the Wine Cave AND save on all your wine purchases. Enjoy exclusive events throughout the year, too!
Tending the vineyards takes consistent dedication
Mother Nature supplied us with ample amounts of rainfall recently.
As many as 9 inches fell at the Wine Cave. Our vines are growing like gangbusters. With 30,000 vines on property, some of them have to be replaced from time to time. Vineyard workers are replanting some Syrah and Merlot varieties this spring to ensure the highest standards of grape quality, always.
Meanwhile, Mark and his crew are working hard to keep up with grass growth.
While the property is 215 acres overall, we have 30 acres of vines, interspersed with grass rows, and dozens of acres of open grass fields.
Mowing the grass is no simple task. When we mow the vineyard property, it is tantamount to driving 60 miles - roughly the distance between our vineyard and Washington, D.C. It also takes two to three days to accomplish, depending on the experience level of the mower operator.
There is always work to be done at the winery and vineyard!
Maggie's team runs the Virginia Wine Country race

The race starts and finishes at Doukenie Winery, near Hillsboro, offering a 13.1-mile course showcasing Virginia's historic byways and bucolic countryside.
