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.

2012 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.
