Shenandoah Steel Chardonnay

Named the #3 white wine in Virginia, Little Washington Winery's Shenandoah Steel (naked) Chardonnay is pure elegance in a bottle. Cluster pressed grapes, crisp acidity and delicate hints of pear and melon evoke the Old World style of the Chablis region of Burgundy.  We've captured the essence of the Chardonnay grape with this bottling. Never touched by oak barrels, this wine is at the forefront of the trend for bright, crisp, refreshing wine that lets the fruit shine without oak influence. Delicious on its own and with a variety of dishes. Pair this wine up with anything a chef would bring out with a lemon for a perfect pairing.


Old World Oak Chardonnay

Little Washington Winery's Old World Oak Chardonnay went through malalactic fermentation to give it a creamy buttery nuance, then was aged ‘sur lie’ for 6 months to enhance the silky texture, while keeping the pure, fruit-focused expression. Floral, fresh ginger and mineral nuances lace expansive fruity flavors that become increasingly interesting and complex as the wine warms in the glass. This wine pairs nicely with seafood and salad and can cross over to richer dishes like chicken and Alfredo sauces too!


Meet Virginia Viognier

Honeysuckle, citrus blossom, gardenias and peaches ~ Garden meets orchard in a glass of Little Washington Winery's Virginia Viognier. This is one temperamental, highly sensitive, unpredictable grape. If picked too early, she fails to display her full profile of flavors and aromas; picked too late she makes wines that are lacking in perfume. Treat her just right, and a seductive, exuberant, unbelievably rich white wine, with an alluring bouquet of expressive floral aromas and powerful flavors of peach, apricot and mango comes through. Balancing flamboyance with crispness, Virginia Viognier is the perfect garden party playmate.



Little Washington Winery's Chard-Viognier is a gorgeous and versatile combination of the famous Chard grape with the rich, aromatic Viognier. This wine is characterized by a palate full of lemons and white fruit notes, then rich apricot on the finish. Enjoy the adventure of lush, intense apple, pear and tropical fruit with vanilla, spice, honeydew, peach and lime zest. A clean, soft enunciated finish. Solstice is the go-to selection whenever you are looking for a white pairing wine. It goes with everything! Nice on its own, as a pre-dinner treat, with salads, all types of seafood and poultry dishes. 



Rare Petit Verdot Rose - Not usually associated with the pink stuff, Petit Verdot is a tiny, bold, savory, earthy, aggressive, black grape appropriately nicknamed "the big inky".  Great Petit Verdot wines offer up ethereal aromas of plum, lilac, violet, sage, blackberry and dried herbs. Our Petit Verdot saignee rosé is dry and full-bodied with bold fruit and medium-plus acidity, exhibiting elegant flavors of sage, plum, watermelon, mocha, licorice and molasses on the palate, with a crisp and lively dry finish.


Cabernet Franc

Little Washington Winery's Gold Medal Cabernet Franc presents an understated elegance that can be savored with food or saved for after dinner chocolates and cigars. The nose evokes roasted red pepper, jalapeño, sweet raspberry compote and wet gravel. On the palate moderately low tannins bring out flavors of sour cherry, smoky tomato, dried oregano, sweet pepper and mint. The taste bursts through your palate and drops out quickly with a subtle tingle from the acidity. Pair with salmon, mushrooms, salty Virginia ham or lamb - cooked with mint sauce - the mint is a bridge to the wine’s characteristic mint qualities.


George 2015 Meritage Blend

Named the #1 red wine in Virginia, Little Washington Winery's signature red, George, is a Meritage blend! Dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, soft tannins and concentrated fruit give this 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc blend perfectly balanced flavor and body with a smooth, silky texture and complex, robust structure. Dark cherry and plum flavors settle into tertiary flavors of violets, chocolate, licorice, truffles, tobacco leaf, smoke and spice. Silky texture. Nice width and depth on the palate.


Que Syrah

Little Washington Winery's Gold Medal Syrah explodes with tart dark fruit flavors. When you taste it you'll be greeted with a punch of flavor that tapers off into nuances of savory black olive, pepper, clove, rosemary, bacon, tobacco, herbs and smoke with a spicy, peppery finale in the after taste. This is one very nice Syrah from Virginia. With its massive, spicy full-bodied taste it pairs perfectly with bold, spicy foods ... anything from a blue cheese burger to barbecue.
