Winemaker Series: Boxwood Winery Pours at En Primeur

This episode features Rachel Martin, Executive V.P. at Boxwood Winery, discussing Boxwood's participation in the Bordeaux "En Primeurs". This event introduces the 2011 Bordeaux vintage to the media and wine brokers using barrel samples - and in Boxwood's case hand bottled and labelled. Boxwood Winery has participated in the event the last few years and received an invitation from their French consultant Stephane Derenoncourt. In fact, Boxwood was the first American winery invited to participate in the event. In the video, Rachel mentions that she will attend En Primeurs with Chris Parker of New Horizon Wines Ltd, who is importing Virginia wines into the United Kingdom. However, we learned later that Mr. Parker had to modify his itinerary and will be in the U.K. that week - evidently to the benefit of Boxwood and other Virginia wineries. Stay tuned for more details. And as usual, the intro music is "How High the Mountain" by Andrew McKnight and all VirginiaWineTV videos are available via iTunes. Cheers.
