Attimo Winery- Christiansburg , VA

DSC_0899

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep…..
A big believer in this philosophy, Attimo winery surely made me stop on the way to New Orleans from Maryland in summer of 2014.
Standard wine tasting  is $5 for 8 wines  and you get to keep the glass for $3!
Reserve Wines up to 4 ($1/wine)
Carries a variety of wines you can select from , beautiful location ,  patio seating with music complementing the setting. Few mins off the highway, definitely calls for a visit. Few wines that I tried..
From the standard list
Yesterday’s Song– Dry white , crisp, lightly oaked, pear notes.. hmmmm…..
Bull Frog Symphony – Dry red blend, peppery , eclectic – Really good!!
Deep Silence– Dry red , intense berry flavors and light smoky pepper finish- I would say Dry and fruity…
Two  wines that I tried from the reserve wines list
Blaze – Dry, noble white (orange) wine. Fiery & tannic
Not a white wine person, hesitant but tried on recommendation of the owner and must say  it did  make up for the hot summer afternoon…
Seduction – Sweet , fortified red, ruby port style wine. Distinct raisin flavors with hints of cooked fruit.. What a better way to end the wine tasting than this…..
