Petit Manseng is a French varietal known for its high sugar and high acid content, and we’ve been sourcing some for the past few years from other Virginia vineyards to blend into our Block A wine. It’s a rising star in the Virginia viticulture scene and we are excited to see how it grows here at Rosemont!

This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about what goes into making wine.  Adopting a row of vines will allow you to get in on the “ground level” and see just what is involved with establishing a vineyard!
