Flying Fox Wines
Our approach to winemaking is very pragmatic. We manage our vines for low yield and maximum fruit intensity. We work with small batches of fruit that have the most desirable characteristics of the terroir and each individual varietal. We want to make the most honest wine possible from the very best grapes. Please consider joining our Wine Club if you would like to receive our wines on a regular basis.

This is a Bordeaux-style Merlot, bold with robust tannins. Plum, cherries and a hint of mocha on the palate. Enjoy now or cellar to drink later. Siver Medal 2013 Atlantic Seaboard Wine Competition
A harmonious blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot with each grape adding its unique notes to the wine. After 18 months of "rehearsal" in the cellar, our best barrels were chosen for this limited production, classically styled wine.

2010 Petit Verdot
Our Petit Verdot is grown in a perfect one acre corner of our vineyard on the eastern slopes of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A summer with excellent growing conditions and 18 months of aging in French and American oak produced a wine with deep color, smooth mature tannins and a lingering finish.
