Over the past couple years, Aaron and I have really gotten into Virginia wine, so we were thrilled to visit Saude Creek Vineyards in New Kent County last weekend with my friend Angela.
The tasting room is set up on a hill overlooking the Pamunkey River and has beautiful views. Since we had never been to the Saude Creek before, we started off with a tasting*, which included samples of the Pamunkey Fall White, Vidal Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Saude Creek Red, Tavern White, and Chambourcin.
The Vidal Blanc, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc topped my list as favorites, but not wanting to drink an entire bottle each, we purchased just the Merlot and Vidal Blanc to share.
Sipping wine on Saude Creek’s large wrap-around porch was just heaven.
Because we visited during their Autumn Harvest Festival, we were also able to enjoy live music, which only added to the ambiance.
According to Saude Creek’s website, live music is a regular occurrence on Sundays, so I’d love to come back and experience it again.
*Tastings are $7 and include a Saude Creek Vineyards wine glass.
