Charlottesville - Tribe Thursday Wine Tasting

Join fellow William & Mary alumni, family, parents and friends in the Charlottesville region and beyond for a virtual wine tasting with Valley Road Vineyards! Order your wine ahead of time (order options listed below), wear your Tribe gear and join Barbara Joynes '82 and Stan Joynes as they offer a W&M wine tasting with stories about the wines they create and insights into the state of winemaking in Virginia.

Barbara and Stan will offer a tasting of two of Valley Road's most popular wines:

  • Destana (2017) -- A lively, crisp dry blend of Viognier, Petit Manseng, and Chardonnay. Great on its own or with food, this white wine features tastes of green apple, spiced apricot, and Asian pear.
  • Torn Curtain (2018) -- Loved for its silky mouthfeel, this blend consists of Chambourcin, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. This easy drinking dry red wine tempts you by dancing near the edge of having a bite, but the soft tannins predominate and it remains smooth in the finish.
