Excellent dessert wine. My favorite whites were the 2009 viognier and the Jolie blond. Jennifer's Jambalaya was an excellent dessert wine. It only has 1.5 or 2% residual sugar, so it wasn't overly sweet at all; quite complex, actually.
Knowledgeable and pleasant. we went here for a tasting on a rainy friday afternoon. the staff was knowledgeable and pleasant.
Gorgeous. The ground were gorgeous! Perfect place to have a picnic.
They frost the grapes themselves. They make an ice wine here too which I believe is rare in Virginia. I've only had ice wines from British Columbia. Ice wine is made from grapes harvested after the first frost which makes them quite sweet. At Breaux they frost the grapes themselves, I'm guessing since VA's first frost occurs pretty late in the season. My husband is a big red drinker, and he was happy to buy bottles of the viognier and the jambalaya.
Couples who want to get out ""to the country"" and sample wines in a fantastic location. This was us and since we accidentally timed it so the countless cherry trees were in blossom, the scene was idyllic.
We went outside and drank until we couldn't feel our faces (wine or cold? both?), so none of this really bothered us.
Oh and they have some impressive wines too.
I also got a bottle of imported olive oil. yum!. the wine was really tasty. i ended up with a rose (i know, old lady wine, right?) and enjoyed every bit of that bottle later in the evening. i also got a bottle of imported olive oil. yum!
2007 Jolie Blonde. We came home with a bottle of 2007 Jolie Blonde and 2 bottles of the EQUATION Merlot. A few years back, my friend's uncle bought a case of the 2002 Nebbiolo and still has 10 bottles because he is"saving it for a special occasion." haha
