Taste Red Malbec Wine at Wineries in Virginia

Mar 9th 2015 at 3:26 AM

Malbec refers to the grape variety that is widely used in producing red wine in Virginia. These purple grapes are known for their dark color and full-bodied tannins. Though it has traditionally been associated with French plantations particularly in South West France, it is increasingly being grown around the globe—including some of the viti cultural areas in the United States, such as New York’s Long Island and Finger Lakes, Oregon’s Applegate Valley, Umpqua Valley, Rogue Valley, and Willamette Valley, Idaho’s Snake River Valley, Texas’ High Plains and Hill Country, and Virginia’s North Fork of Roanoke and Monticello. Malbec wines from Virginia are some of the best in the world.


Virginia wines have wowed wine critics and wine lovers for hundreds of years. In fact, Virginia is one of the up-and-coming wine regions in the world—along with some areas in New Zealand and Chile— and is on the must-visit list of any self-respecting adventurous wine traveler. Virginia is producing world-class Malbec wines thanks to its favorable taste. Winemakers have inhabited Virginia for over 400 years. The initial efforts failed because of pests and other such issues, until the 1820’s when the region’s red wine finally met with great success, winning top prize in a Viennese world fair. Experimental plantings were done in the1950s and new wineries opened in the 1970s. By 1995, there were already 46 wineries in Virginia and now there are over 190.


Virginia’s Malbec wines pair wonderfully with American comfort food, and some of the most renowned chefs and highbrow restaurants have been taking notice. It’s not common to find Virginia wines paired with courses costing an average of $350 a plate. But really—you don’t need to pay that much to enjoy a great bottle of Virginia Malbec. You can now order bottles online for your next party, to add to your collection, or to enjoy at home. Malbec goes perfectly with spicy and sweet barbecue sauces and are bold enough to pair with beef ribs. Young and fruity bottles are perfect with spaghetti and meatballs, chili con carne, beef burritos, and lamb curries. Heavyweight Malbecs taste even more divine when paired with steaks and hot game pies, farmhouse cheddar, duck confit, pot roast pheasant, casseroles (and pork and bean dishes), and flavorsome sausages with lots of garlic. Adding a bottle or two of Virginia’s Malbec wines to your cellar can make your dinner parties more interesting. Buy Malbec wines online to get the best deals.
