Horton Vineyards has always been a favorite for Virginia winery-goers. The sheer exuberance of the place is worthy of a visit. Dozens of wines to taste, many you won't see often in Virginia: Rkatsiteli, Roussanne, Pinotage, Graciano. The hordes of admirers. The whimsical naming: Chateau le Cabin, Rojo Xoco, Chateauneuf du Virginia.

These guys have a ton of creativity and a great sense of humor. They're well known for their "Norton from Horton," and were one of the first in Virginia to try out the now-ubiquitous Viognier. They were also the first Cab Franc I (Nancy) ever tasted, oh so many years ago, sending me off to countless Northern Virginia groceries to try and find more, more, more.
