Need an easy Spring recipe and wine pairing?
Try Maggie's 2015 Petit Manseng with a delicious Ham, Gruyere & Asparagus Quiche!

Whether it is Easter, Mother's Day, graduation parties or baby showers, it seems like the spring season always brings some sort of celebration.
Maggie recommends a versatile Ham, Gruyere & Asparagus Quiche recipe that works for many occasions and pairs well with her award-winning 2015 Petit Manseng wine.
The Petit Manseng wine has a delicate sweetness and delicious pineapple and citrus notes that pair well with the quiche's savory and herbaceous flavors.

Maggie bottles new wines in April!

It is almost time to bottle Maggie's 2017 whites and rosés.
When she does, there will be new wines in her lineup to look forward to this summer .
The 2017 Autumn brought Maggie's first harvest of Sauvignon Blanc . It is a dry white wine with a delicate grapefruit finish. It will be released later this summer.
Also, Maggie will have two rosé wines - a dry and a sweet - this summer season!
Maggie introduces Sunset Sonata - a lightly sweet rosé  blend. She's also bottling a new vintage of her dry R osé   a blend of Garnacha and Cabernet Sauvignon. Maggie's 2016 dry Rosé  was a medal winner and a huge hit with visitors last summer.
Maggie also will be bottling another vintage of her Albariño - a crisp, dry white wine.
The Wine Cave is a multi-purpose facility that can adapt to different operational needs throughout the growing season. But it means we have to change our schedule from time to time, especially when we bottle.
PLEASE NOTE: The Wine Cave will be closed to the public Monday through Wednesday, April 16-18, to prepare and execute the white wine bottling operation.
When Spring frost threatens, who you gonna call?
Mark and his Frostbuster to the rescue!
When a hoary frost is forecast this Spring in the vineyards, have no fear. Mark and his trusty new Frostbuster are here, to save the day!
More powerful than a speeding bullet, the Frostbuster follows the tractor and kee ps the vines warm by blowing heated air between the vineyard rows. It covers about 15-20 acres, and shoots hot air 50 meters to each side of the machine as it moves through the vineyard. 
Mark and his machine stand at the ready through dark of night to respond to any unseasonable chill.
With more than 100 tons of grapes expected at this year's Fall harvest, the Frostbuster is a critical piece of the puzzle in Mark's efforts to fight frost and protect the grapes.
Mark hopes he never has to use this machine, due to the devastating effects of frost, but if he does, he'll be ready. This Frostbuster and Mark's older model Frost Dragon should protect our 30 acres of grapes. 
This is a relatively new type of science for Virginia vineyards, and Maggie Malick Wine Caves is proud to be on the cutting edge of this new technology.
