YES………..3 vineyards + 3 grape varietals = THREE
Each year King Family Vineyards and Veritas Winery along with a third winery get together to create their “THREE” wine. This year Grace Estate Winery become the third partner. THREE is a winemaking collaboration between the 3 wineries. Using 3 different grape varieties from three different vineyards the winemakers craft one unique blended wine.
This year, THREE is a red blend of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. Sticking to their “rule of three”, the blend was made from three separate tasting trials in order to ensure the proper blend of fruit and oak. The result is a well-balanced wine with rich notes of dark cherry and blueberry and has great aging potential.
THREE was released last Friday. The wine can be purchased at the 3 wineries for $33.33 a bottle. Well worth the price! We bought 2 bottles ourselves. In fact we buy a bottle every year.
All 3 wineries are located in the Crozet area. If you are in the area, you definitely need to visit these wineries.
