L’Auberge Provencale was thrilled to team up with Linden Vineyards last year on June 23rd, 24th & 30th for Linden’s Annual Barrel Tasting. The talented culinary team at L’Auberge Provencale paired the cuisine to complement the latest wines available from Linden. The Kingfish stole the show and went outrageously well with Linden’s Sauvignon Blanc. No one could resist the Lamb chops as they sipped on the 2008 Hardscrabble Chardonnay. This amazing event drew in over 750 wine enthusiasts from the area who visited the winery over a three-day spree. Mother Nature was on our side and the weather was as good as it gets in the Shenandoah Valley. The food and wine was flowing as spirits ran high, and we were delighted to be able to take part in such an event.
If you missed the Barrel Tasting, but love Virginia wines, we invite you to visit our Virginia Inn and Restaurant and partake in one of our self guided or chauffeured wine tours. Our Virginia Wine Country Tours include other local vineyards and wineries including Delaplane, Three Fox, Veramar, Barrel Oak, Pearmund Cellars (who won the Governor’s Cup this year), Philip Carter, La Grange, Naked Mountain and so many more. All of these fantastic Virginia Wineries are just a quick ride from the inn. After your complimentary tasting certificates are used, head back to L’Auberge for our Prix Fixe 5 Course Menu or 6 Course Tasting Menu with our exceptionally selected wine pairings. Our wine pairings feature wines from not only the vines in the Shenandoah Valley and all around the world, but of course we pair the Kingfish with Linden’s Avenius Sauvignon Blanc. It’s that good!
If the barrel tasting sounded like your kind of event and you’re sorry you missed it, mark your calendar for a Special Wine Dinner at L’Auberge Provencale on June 26th, hosted by Jason Bise from The Country Vintner. Call us for details!
