Fine jewelry and fine wine are two of a girl’s best friends. The family that has opened Molon Lave Vineyards offers both gorgeous gems at Louizos Goldsmiths and wine in a gorgeous setting. The vineyard is located in Warrenton, VA but is much closer to Bealeton. The family planted the vines 12 years ago and opened their Tasting Room about 5 years ago.
The Tasting Room is is clean, large and is it is completely made of tile and stone . This means if you are unfortunate enough to be there when another guest decides to bring his guitar it isn’t a pleasant cozy winery experience. However, the wine is tasty and interestingly priced (ranging from $24-$32 for the wine and $40 for the aperitif).
I enjoyed the Chambourcin and the Merlot.The greek logo is accompanied by greek decor and olive oil tasting. The sweet wine Ariadne is aged in a retired whiskey barrel and named after the maiden of the greek myth who gave Theseus a sword and a clew of thread to kill the minotaur. The label art comes from a local artist who gifted the paintings as a opening present.
Wine Club membership gets you not only free wine tastings but also free olive oil tastings. It’s a great snack to enjoy with a glass of wine. The flavors include: lemon, lime, blood orange, rosemary, Greek seasoning, basil, and garlic. Wine Club membership also includes use of the Small Barrel Room for up to 12 people and an annual Winemaker’s Dinner!
Molon Lave’s Tasting Room and patio is situated on the bank of a little lake. They have fire pits on the patio in chilly temperatures. The vineyard is 20 acres and uses estate grown grapes to make kosher wine. After your wine tasting, I highly recommend taking a glass of wine with you while you take in the scenery.
