Wine offerings will be provided by John and Susan Kiers of Ox-Eye Vineyards.
They are a stone’s throw away from Polyface, so the terroir of these wines will be in perfect harmony with the Polyface fare we’re serving for lunch.
We’ve selected two wines to sample and serve at the conclusion of the tour and before the start of lunch.
Cabernet Franc 2010 (dry red)
White Ox 2012 (sweet white, has depth of flavor).
Ox-Eye Vineyard’s Farm Philosophy:
Our focus is crafting high quality, food-friendly wines from grapes best suited to the soil and climate of our farm in Virginia’s beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Our winegrowing strives to harness the natural seasonal patterns and climate with minimal interference and carefully considerate land husbandry.
