Father’s Day Duo 2022
Celebrate the Father’s in your life with a gift they will enjoy, and something they can actually use!
Our 2022 Father’s Day Duo Includes:
2019 Petit Verdot
Petit Verdot, 2019, another excellent Petit Verdot from Muse Vineyards. Every vintage of Petit Verdot from Muse has won numerous gold medals in competitions from California to Virginia. As Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate said when they rated the 2017 Petit Verdot at 90 points,” it is beautifully focused and precise… and is a perfect food wine.” 2019 was another strong growing year in the vineyard and over the next months we are confident we will see this 2019 rack up medals and satisfied consumers just as its sister vintage.
Named for the humble “pichets” (wine carafes) of French cafes, this red wine is light-bodied, uncomplicated and refreshing. It is a blend of grapes produced exclusively at MUSE from our younger vines. It is fermented in stainless steel and bottled early. Serve slightly chilled and enjoy it as the wine of boulevardiers and resting Moulin Rouge dancers.

A Note on Pricing
Because viticulture is difficult in Virginia (heavy rains, late season rots, mildews, hard Spring frosts, cold winters, etc.) some wineries believe it justifies charging a premium for their wines. We don’t share that view – we chose to develop a vineyard and winery here and nobody should be expected to subsidize that choice. Hand-tended and harvested vines produce better wine, so the added expense of that kind of labor intensive viticulture is recouped in a bottle price that is objectively reflective of that quality. At Muse we insist on a fair value-to-price ratio, i.e. there’s no premium charged just because it’s Virginia wine – each wine we sell must stand on its own two feet as worth its price. Our Thanksgiving Quartet selections can be put up against a similar style of wine (for example, a barrel fermented white (e.g. white Burgundy) or a Bordeaux blend, e.g a Napa/Sonoma meritage) at the same retail price – assuming you can even find one in the $20-30 range – and our wine will always equal and in most cases exceed the quality of that wine. If you ever have reason to disagree, please tell us.
