Muse Valentine’s Day Duo 2022
Celebrate Your Love of Wine With Your Someone Special.
Our 2022 Valentine’s Day Special Includes:
Calliope is sunshine in a bottle. A southern red Rhone blend of Grenache and Mourvedre, this wine is light bodied and approachable with light tannins and medium acidity. In 2019 Calliope was judged “best in category” at the Atlantic Seaboard wine competition. 12.7% alcohol.
Erato, a goddess of Greek mythology, derived her name from the word “lovely,” which is what describes this aromatic wine, fermented in stainless steel tanks. It has a floral aroma which comes from a small version of Muscat Blanc grown on shale soils in our highest elevation vineyard. Blended with chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Vidal Blanc, and Rkatsiteleli, it is the perfect aperitif wine–crisp and fruity. 12.1% alcohol.
Regular $56 | Wine Club Members $43 | Non-Members $50

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.
