    Wine Trail Homes visit to Barrel Oak Winery

    Wine Trail Homes visits Barrel Oak Winery


    Our featured Winery pick this week comes to you from Barrel Oak Winery in Delaplane VA.  Perfectly placed on the knob of a hill and seen from Rt 66. Views are like no other. 


    What's not to love?


    Award winning wines and voted Best Winery in Fauquier County, from the Best of Warrenton Competition.


    If you are searching for a friendly atmosphere, enjoy wine tasting, views and of course Dogs! This is the place you have been looking for.  It is crowded on the weekends and you will wait for a tasting, but it is certainly worth the wait. 


     


    Our suggested wine from here is the Norton


    Native grape to Virginia fermented and aged in Virginia Oak. Barrel Oaks unique Norton teases the senses with notes of violets and toasted graham.


     


    And most certainly can't forget the popular Chocolate Lab! Yes it is a wine!


    Totally unique port-style Chambourcin infused with essences drawn from cocoa beans added to the wine during secondary fermentation. Lush vanilla and chocolate that finishes perfectly and is not too sweet. Aged in recovered whiskey barrels with 5% residual sugar.
