TasteCamp 2012 Visit to Linden Vineyards - The Vineyard Tour

From May 4th-6th, about 40 wine bloggers and writers visited several wineries in Virginia as part of TasteCamp 2012. We caught up with the group the last day at Linden Vineyards where proprietor Jim Law lead a vineyard tour and discussed their signature Hardscrabble and Avenius wines. This was easily the most informative tour I've participated during the past decade visiting wineries. The music is provided by The Steel Wheels: Nola's First Dance written by Jay Lapp.

Winemaker Series: Jordan Harris of Tarara Winery

Here's our first episode that eventually lead to creating the VirginiaWineTV series. It features former bluegrass sensation Cadillac Sky (as the band went separate ways soon after this video) in a discussion of wine and music with Jordan Harris, the winemaker at Tarara Vineyard & Winery. We discussed the similarities between the two occupations: wine makers and musician. During the discussion we sampled three yet to be bottled wines in Tarara's new "Nova" series. These wines are made from the best grapes grown in specific vineyards or appellations and the futures are actually already sold out. Thanks also to Echo Propp, from WAMU Bluegrass Country, for co-hosting. The video is available to download for iTunes and Windows Media Player.
