Our Petit Manseng is an homage to the "ice wine" style of dessert wines. Viscous and sweet it is the perfect ending for a meal. Chrysalis Vineyards is the pioneer in bringing Petit Manseng to the United States. In 2002, Chrysalis’ owner Jennifer McCloud was granted by the BATF to include Petit Manseng on the list of “Primary Names” for varietally labeled wines in America. This is the first Petit Manseng so labeled in the United States.
Petit Verdot is a highly valued grape varietal that we grow here in Virginia. Originally from France, this wine has dark fruit notes, notes of coffee and black pepper that accompany the well-rounded tannins.
