2016 Wild Boar The Pursuit
In a letter to George Washington in 1787, Thomas Jefferson wrote "Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will, in the end, contribute most to real wealth, good morals and happiness." Our Pursuit bottling is more than just an homage to Thomas Jefferson; more importantly, it is a triumphant celebration of Virginia’s 400+ years of winemaking history. While the industry has undoubtedly experienced a tumultuous journey, Virginia is making waves and is increasingly gaining national and international recognition for our quality. Exceptional vineyard sites are managed by passionate, industrious, and talented winegrowers, and the Bordeaux varietals are well-suited for representing our sense of place. The complexity of this wine is evident from the first sight and smell to the final taste!
