Michael Broadbent Raves About Virginia Wine


I want to thank Christopher Parker for sending me the following article by Michael Broadbent. I made it a separate piece, but it certainly forwards Christopher's claims that Virginia wines are building an important reputation over in the UK. I am tardy in posting this, since he raved about Virginia wines in the August 209 issue of Decanter magazine. But it rings true today eve more loudly than when it first appeared. Because it now appears that Virginia wines are moving forward.

Both Michael Broadbent and Oz Clarke have raved about recent Virginian vintages. And sales continue to clime, small, but steady. Time is on Parker's side.

But this piece by Broadbent is all you need to know about the quality and growing reputation of Virginia wines.
