The 4th Annual Shenandoah Cup went to Cave Ridge winemaker and owner Randy Phillips for his 2019 Fossil Hill Reserve (60% Cab Franc, 20% Petit Verdot, 20% Cab Sauv). Bottles are still available for purchase at the winery or by mail, $35. Buy the wine here and see all the Shenandoah Valley Wine Trail wineries here.  


Love mulled wine, dessert wine, chocolate wine? Of course you do. 37 wineries are offering free pours of their holiday wines. Details here
