Brunello di Montalcino 🍷✨
It was truly a dream come true getting to explore the Montalcino region. Behind me you can see the town of Montalcino on the hilltop! 🏰
Brunello is made with 100% Sangiovese and produced with Italy’s highest DOCG classification. 🍇
Sangiovese has thicker skinned berries with high acidity + tannin, and produces wines with flavors of red fruits, plums, tobacco and herbs. 🍒🌿
Before a Brunello can be sold, it must age for at least 5 years, with a minimum of 2 years in oak. 🪵
Brunello’s are known for their ability to age and get better with time, the best aging 15 -25 years. 🍷

Happy First Day of Fall! 🍂🍁🍷
I can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by! While I love summer, Fall is my favorite season.
I’m looking forward to cold weather, cozy sweaters and cooking lot’s of yummy comfort food!
I’ve got some fun fall themed content, food and wine pairings and recipes coming soon so be on the look out.
Also can you believe these stemless glasses from @cruvina are actually shatter proof plastic? Perfect for the beach.
What are you looking forward to this fall?
Can’t help fall-ing in love with the best season ever 🍁🍂🍁🍷
Happy autumn, winos! Just like that, summer is over and I’m ready for the crisp clear days that make me want to spend every day at a winery.
Just a few things I’m excited for this autumn:
• Enjoying all the bold red wines
• Sweater weather
• #Virginiawinemonth in just over a week!
What are you most excited for this fall?? 🍁🍷🍂

Friday night in lockdown done right with @pinotpilates , wine and my pilates buddy!
Tonight’s wine selection is a lovely Organic Tempranillo - a beautiful affordable organic wine, perfect for when you have to combine wine and ab workouts 😉
Thank you @pinotpilates for getting us moving and getting those good endorphins going!
They had known of each other their whole lives, and today they finally met for the first time. A fist bump to living a beer drinkers lifestyle, and cheers to having a liver with armor to go the extra mile.
