As I'm sure you've noticed, it's a tad chilly out. A little wine can do wonders in helping to pass the time, anxiously awaiting the chance sighting of a little wintry precipitation. I mean, if its going to be this cold, we better get some snow out of it! Here are three cool bottles that we have featured and on display here at The Goat to help warm the spirits this Winter.
DOMAINE DANIEL ET ETIENNE DEFAIX | CHABLIS: Ridiculously rich, full bodied, concentrated yellow melon,... Full Post >
New Year's Eve means bubbles, conversation, and committing to resolutions that probably won't last more than a week. While I can't help you with your yearly goals, or give you any hot topics for conversation, I can help you pick out a nice bottle of sparkling wine that might make the aforementioned tasks a little easier to bear.
Everything in life goes better with Champagne, and at the Goat we've made sure that there's plenty of Duval-Leroy Brut Champagne to be had. If your tastes are... Full Post >
Santa's been working hard all year, makings his lists, checking them twice, and getting patent rights issues ironed out so his elves can make the new MacBook Air in time for Christmas.
All jokes aside, Santa's pretty bored with the same old milk to go with his cookies. Why not spice it up and give Santa something he'll really enjoy, wine!
Vin Santo and biscotti is a pretty neat Italian combination, or ginger cookies and a late harvest Alsatian Gewurztraminer for another original flavor... Full Post >
Hearty holiday meals call for a hearty holiday wines. If roasts, stews, and potatoes come your way this season, enjoy them with a glass of Mas de Daumas Gassac Rouge or Les Vins de Vienne Saint-Joseph. These two wines are amazingly balanced with aromatics, flavors, structure, and alcohol all singing together harmoniously without one overpowering the other.
These wines are ideal with heavier, full flavored dishes, and are guaranteed to have your guests showing up at your house for dinner... Full Post >

We were very excited to share a favorite beer from Fearrington's Wine Director Maximilian Kast, the Corsendonk Christmas Ale! This beer is perfect for relaxing after a day of holiday shopping or to share with family over dinner.
Here's what Maximilian Kast shared about this holiday delight:
"Corsendonk Christmas Ale is a Belgian Dark Strong Ale made in a similar fashion as a Trappist Dubbel style. It has aromas of Prune, Raisin, Fig, and Floral notes as well, it is full-bodied and rich... Full Post >

You got invited to a get together, you want to bring wine, but you have no clue what anybody's preferences are.
Think blends. Wines made from a blend of varieties will inherently tempt a wider spectrum of tastes and offer what will typically be a more complex, balanced wine.
For white wine, we have this unthinkably delicious blend from the Napa Valley in ODISEA's Veritable Quandary that returns a glass full of tropical citrus, star fruit, kiwi, a river... Full Post >
Turkey season is upon us once again, and for those of us who would rather not slave away in the hot kitchen making a dish to bring to the family dinner this year, the gift of wine seems much more appropriate! Very little is more appropriate than Beaujolais Nouveau for Thanksgiving, as it is an extremely fresh wine whose flavors and structure (body, acidity, alcohol, etc.) make a perfect match for turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and the like. Pick up a bottle of JOSEPH... Full Post >

I recently returned from the Virginia Wine Summit in Richmond, and yep, I am pretty excited about the wine. It’s not just local, it’s really good. The Summit is a well organized event promoting Virginia, its wines, and its wine regions. For the event, I was asked to participate on a panel discussion about "Dark Horse" grape varieties. The opportunity was exciting because it deals with one of the most important issues in the American wine industry today: the necessity to move beyond... Full Post >
