We are exploring the Shenandoah Valley AVA on this edition of Crystal Palate’s Wine Country. Central and Northern Virginia often get the lion’s share of attention when it comes to Virginia wine, but the Shenandoah Valley is also showing great promise for the fruit of the vine.

In fact, the Shenandoah Valley AVA is home to more than two dozen vineyards and wineries. Lee Hartman, the general manager and head winemaker for Bluestone Vineyard in Bridgewater joins me on the show this week.  Find out what makes this area so unique for viticulture. Plus, Lee is sharing his award-winning Chardonnay that was featured in the 2016 Virginia Governor’s Cup. Enjoy the show!
