This is a good follow-up to your last post, about how terroir is true and the human element cannot be discounted. As even in small countries when you taste wine you can notice a discernible difference between wines from north, south, east and west, etc.

At the moment wines from the FLX are pretty unavailable in Taiwan or Asia. I did have the Dr. Konstantin Frank Dry Riesling 2013 in 2015 which was pretty impressive. And the Fox Run Lemberger 2012 in 2015, unfortunately the Lemberger was past its prime, so a bit of disappointment but interesting nonetheless.

Question, why is the word Virginia in the article title, is a reference to an individual or to the state of Virginia?

Ah good question. There’s an American saying “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus”

I’m imagining an exciting conversation all about wine, tasting notes, the US, the French language, and anti-intellectualism (just to name a few topics that could be covered) between Jason, Maggie Harrison, and Alex Halberstadt that we all get to read in an upcoming issue of this newsletter. 🩷
