Featuring the least amount of frost in the state, the Tidewater region of Virginia is more moderate than that of the inland locations. Many traditional grapes grow well here, such as the Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay. We also start to see some hybrids like Vidal Blanc and Chambourcin in the area.
Aptly named due to the mountain ridge that the AVA runs through, Rocky Knob was named after a state park in the area. Rocky Know is unique in that there are cool winds that delay the onset of spring, these same winds also can lead to drying out the area after large rainfalls. Cabernet Franc, Riesling, and Chardonnay are common grapes grown in the area.
Receiving a good amount of natural protection from the nearby mountains, the valley is warmer and dryer than its neighbors. There are many whites and reds that are popular in the Valley. Some of the top grapes grown are Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscat, Riesling, and Chardonnay.
Virginia’s Eastern Shore
Separated from Virginia by the Chesapeake Bay, Virginia’s Eastern Shore Wine have many examples of popular wines such as the Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc. While it may be known more for its beaches over its winery, vines are able to reach and grow deep root systems as the soil is permeable leading to concentrated, high-quality grapes and wine.
