Story: Started by Shawn Eubank and Greg Glenn, this project and wine is made at Rocklands Farm, 30 minutes from DC in Montgomery County. 100% Petit Manseng grown in far western Loudoun County, Virginia by Hillsborough Vineyard that was macerated on the skins for 8 days then fermented in used barrels. Shawn describes it as "a tropical touch of bananas and pineapples (aka Bananas & Ananas)." We think it tastes like salted mango.  
THE DETAILS
  • The Petit Manseng harvested in early September from as site there that was planted about 15 years ago. Hillsborough Vineyard is one of the few growers in Virginia who forgoes the use of herbicides in the vineyard.  

  • Shawn Eubank is also the owner of Native Selections. 

  • Rocklands is a winery in addition to having livestock, the location of Sungold Flower Co., and in general a delight of a place. 

  • The label was designed by Native Selection sales rep and artist Virginia Samsel.
