As Thomas Jefferson once said, “No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth.” It seems only fitting that our founding father and native Virginian could sum up so eloquently the essence of the RdV philosophy. Furthering the notion of the Presidential seal of approval, fast forward to 2016 and Rutger de Vink’s (the RdV in ‘RdV’) 2010 Rendezvous Blend was a featured wine at The White House for a special State Dinner.
While there are many attractive wines from Virginia, none are quite as lauded as those from RdV. Boasting a perfectly situated hillside in the Blue Mountains and the ideal terroir, de Vink has been praised for creating wines ‘with density, but without heaviness,’ as well as being ‘complex, velvety and world-class’ – and that isn’t just what Jancis Robinson, MW and Robert Parker, Jr think!
