7 Lady Vineyards Wine

I was born in a luxurious labyrinth of tunnels located 200 feet below sea level, heiress to the famed royalty, King Feteasca Alba and Queen Muscat. In my early years, I lay peacefully with my 2 million sisters, being rotated by hand daily to keep sediment from clogging my head. One day, in his thick Romanian accent, our leader tasked me with guiding a troop nearly 5000 miles across the sea to a land ruled by 7 ladies that they claim is for wine lovers. I am immediately welcomed and seem to be invited to every occasion that warrants a celebration, which always commences by knocking my hat off with a large celebratory pop. I am loved for my bubbly personality, radiant golden complexion, and green apple hazelnut perfume. I AM the 7LV Brut Reserve.

Brut Rosé
Moldova

Toast to eternal love with this sparkling marriage of Feteasca Alba and Merlot grapes. This delicate wine hails from the hidden gem of Moldova, the largest bubbles producer in the world! Glowing with the pink hue and gorgeous floral aroma that mirrors a blushing bride, it is no surprise that Richmond Bride voted this one of the best wines to serve at your wedding. Like newlyweds during their first dance, it twirls with notes of berry, balanced with a bright acidity, while hints of minerality and almond add a touch of sophistication. Pairs perfectly with . . . EVERYTHING.

Rosé 2022
Virginia

Imagine a slender magician wearing a pale salmon colored tuxedo, silver top hat, and strawberry scented cologne. On a warm Spring day, he strolls through the vineyard, juggling raspberries, cherries, and lemons, making crisp jokes with a dry sense of humor. For lunch, he requests a watermelon arugula salad garnished with the finest feta, followed by a grilled Scottish salmon filet. This wizard IS our 2022 Rose, produced by the celebrated winemakers at Horton Vineyards with exactly you in mind.

Petit Manseng 2017 (Dessert) 375 ml
Virginia

Award Winner

This orchestra of honeysuckle and apricot plays a symphony on your taste buds, with the second act welcoming vanilla and spice to center stage. Produced by the award winning grape virtuosos at Michael Shaps Wineworks, this dessert wine dances perfectly with sweets like Frangelico panna cotta and chocolate budino (Our DH house made interpretation of the perfect peanut butter cup). For a more adventurous crescendo, this wine is a seamless duet with spicy Asian or Indian food and potent cheeses such as bleu d’auvergne. The Governor’s Cup decorated it with a silver medal and we give it a standing ovation!

Summer Red 2022
Virginia

Dive into the warmer months with this Virginia blend of Merlot, Cab Franc, and Chardonnay, best served cold and waterside by the beautiful 7LV pond. While it may bring back memories of riding past the cherry orchard in that top down convertible, sipping on a chillable red, and listening to Steve Miller invent the “pompatus” of love, this wine brings a grown-up level of sophistication with notes of vanilla, toast, and cedar. Ride shotgun with our artisan charcuterie, ceviche, or beet and arugula salad.

Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Moldova

Our first international white wine is a product of the Codru region of Moldova, where the low hills, sunny plains, and moderate climate produce lovely, aromatic wines. Unlike New Zealand's grapefruit explosions, this Sauvignon Blanc boasts bright minerality, floral citrus, and a gentle acidity. It’s the perfect partner for an afternoon stroll and picnic in the vineyard with our compressed watermelon and arugula salad.

Pinot Grigio 2019
Moldova

Wandering through the orchard, you fill your basket with limes, lemons, green apples, and succulent white nectarines, while honeysuckle wafts in the air. The sun sparkles a happy yellow with a hint of green. Hailing from Moldova, this is the broad spectrum 7LV Pinot Grigio experience. Complement its bright acidity with our beet and arugula salad, garnished with goat cheese, citrus, and shaved radish.

Viognier 2022
Shenandoah Valley, Virginia

Award Winner

Upon the morning sunrise, I see a grand castle in the distance. It’s Dover Hall, the estate where I’m cultivated, and home to the most lavish celebrations. I’m harvested in late August by a hard-working group, self-proclaimed as “The Dream Team”. After I’m snipped off the branch, I’m swept away in a Ford Ram to Common Wealth Crush Co., where our Winemaker and mastermind, Ben Jordan, works his magic to create this Governor’s Cup bronze medal wine. When I finally landed in that sexy black bottle 8 months later, I have reached my full potential. On the nose, you’ll be transported to your childhood with the smell of honeysuckle. On the palate, you’ll be tickled with green apples, apricots, and bursts of bright citrus. Pair me with Chicken Tagine, a traditional Moroccan dish.

Albariño 2020
Virginia

Award Winner

Produced for 7LV by Horton Vineyards, this Governor’s Cup gold medal winner will instantly transport you to the sunny Portuguese countryside, where cool nights help to lock in its high acidity. Although this varietal was introduced to the Commonwealth almost three decades ago, Albariño has recently gained significant traction as Virginia’s leading white wine. Picture a twirling flamenco dancer in a yellow gown with green hints. She skips through the citrus carnival - lemon, lime, grapefruit – And the party’s on! Caitlin Horton describes this wine as “versatile and awesome”, and we couldn’t agree more. Light bodied, but balances our peppercorn-crusted cauliflower quite well, or simply enjoy it as an aperitif.

Petit Manseng 2022
Virginia

Award Winner

Introduced to Virginia in 1987 by a viticulture professor at VA Tech, the lightly packed clusters of petit manseng allow for ideal airflow on hot, humid, Summer days and can live late into the growing season. With grapes sourced locally from Greenwood, Virginia, our medium-bodied silver medal masterpiece was exclusively curated for 7LV by Common Wealth Crush Co. It is the finest cup of hot tea reincarnated as wine, offering a delicate mélange of lemon, pineapple, honey, and vanilla. Savor with our tuna poke or curry chicken skewers for the perfect match.

It's the wine's way of saying, "I'm soft, I'm well-rounded, and I'm here to party!” Pair with our smoked salmon medallions or butter-poached lobster to make any meal a special occasion.

Meet the life of the new Oregon wine party – our 2022 Chardonnay was custom blended for 7LV by Jesse Lange of Lange Winery in Willamette Valley, Oregon. This wine is like a burst of sunshine in every sip, with bright, zesty notes and a hint of acidity that's pure bliss. Forget heavy oaks and butter – this is the Oregon way, mimicking the elegance of a French Burgundian style Chardonnay. As the Oregon climate warms, Chardonnay is stealing the spotlight from Pinot Gris, and this bottle is leading the delicious revolution. Serve with our seared scallops or Chesapeake crab bisque for a coast-to-coast soirée!

Cabernet Franc 2017
Shenandoah Valley, Virginia

Award Winner

Our 2017 Cabernet Franc from Shenandoah Valley is a showstopper produced for 7LV by Horton Vineyards. Tannins are the rock-solid backbone of this thrilling adventure which commences with an earthy aroma of green pepper. Flavors burst with blackberry and plum, followed by a dance of vanilla, spice, and zesty acidity. Partner it with our artisan charcuterie and wild mushroom risotto for a romantic dinner that'll be talked about for ages.

Pinot Noir 2022
Willamette Valley, Oregon

Experience the finest of Pinot Noir with this 2022 supermodel, fashioned by Scott and Lisa Neal at their all-organic vineyard, Coeur de Terre. No need for a casting call as the cool climate of Willamette Valley, Oregon allows the grapes to ripen slowly and the volcanic ash provides the nutrients that Pinot Noir loves. With a sexy and captivating ruby color, its entrance boasts red cherries, strawberries, and a hint of earthy spice. On the runway, it's a smooth, silky sensation—ripe fruit flavors, refreshing acidity, with a quick turn to a subtle touch of oak. The graceful stage left, with soft tannins and a lingering blend of fruity down-to-earthiness, will have your taste buds applauding. Accent the performance with our wild mushroom and brie cast iron pizza or decadent chocolate budino.

Cabernet Franc 2022
“South Block”

Manakin-Sabot, Virginia

Made with exclusively Goochland County grapes harvested from the South Block at Dover Hall, this inaugural estate Cab Franc was certainly worth the four-year wait! Its nose is a tantalizing rollercoaster with dark fruit, black currant, and black cherry aromas, playing hide-and-seek with hints of vanilla and spice. With a velvety palate, ripe fruit flavors take the lead, playing with tannins so well-integrated, that they're practically BFFs. Black pepper and tobacco join the palate party, adding a dash of complexity that will make your taste buds dance a jig. Light enough to pair with our Lochlander salmon but equally rewarding with our airline chicken and game jus.

Cabernet Franc 2019
Napa Valley, California

Stepping into the cozy two-story library at Dover Hall, you are delighted with the aroma of leather-bound books and oak logs crackling in the fireplace. A good-looking gentleman smoking a cigar greets you with a firm handshake and a full-bodied voice, “Hi, I’m Steve Reynolds. Care to join me for dinner? I’ve prepared a delicious red wine braised short rib with creamy polenta and have been aging this Napa Valley gem for five years now.” This is the story of our Reynolds Family Cabernet Franc collaboration earning a silver medal at the prestigious San Francisco International Wine Competition.

Awarded a DOUBLE GOLD at the San Francisco International Wine Competition, we are confident you will agree with the judges panel that this wine is more fun than a frog in a glass of milk.

Produced by the Balius Cellars winemaker who trained in Burgundy and Bordeaux, there is no doubt this will be the daily rockstar of your wine cellar! With a gorgeous burgundy color, sexy legs, and a blackberry, peppery nose, it is a Cabernet-lovers paradise that'll have your taste buds grooving in delight. But what’s a party without a dance partner?! This full-bodied wine with hints of dark chocolate, espresso, and oak demands our New Zealand Lamb Chops – grilled to perfection – a duet of delectable delight. For added ambiance, throw on some Frank Sinatra on vinyl and stoke up a fire to add to the mood – dancing is not required (though always encouraged)!

Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Napa Valley, California

Award Winner

Posh, spicy, and sophisticated! Our 2019 Cabernet is a gorgeous collaboration with Reynolds Family Winery of Napa Valley and a recipient of a silver medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition. The experience begins with smoky tobacco and cedar, followed by dried blueberry and blackberry, with a strong oak finish. Steve Reynolds proclaimed that this is best enjoyed after 6 years of aging, so the time is now to unearth this treasure from the cellar and cherish it with a prime filet garnished with Chef Leah’s 72-hour red wine demi-glace.

Malbec 2022
Mendoza, Argentina

Salsa into flavor town with the 7 Lady Vineyards Malbec! This spectacular wine is the result of a collaboration between a winemaker, viticulturist, and two proprietors – self-proclaimed as the four crazy cats. The grapes are sourced from their vineyard in Alto Gualtallary, the largest growing region in Argentina. At the base of the Andes Mountains, the warm, dry climate, limestone soil, and oodles of sunshine allow the fruit to thrive. Its intense ruby red color and sexy legs are the visual foreshadowing of a smooth, velvety taste bud tango of blackberry, plum, and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and ages well, but this superstar is ready to shine now. No need to be fancy with this one – treat yourself with one of our house ground blue cheeseburger sliders with peppered bacon and truffle fries!

Red Blend NV
Virginia

Designed by Horton Vineyards, this wine exemplifies our overarching international wine concept in a single bottle, marrying six obscure grapes originally hailing from Uruguay, Portugal, South Africa, and France. Touriga, Petit Verdot, Tinta Cao, Tannat, Syrah, and Pinotage create the magic, some of which being aged for two seasons to maximize the body. The Nose: ripe blackberries, dark cherries, vanilla, and oak - a scented symphony. The Palate: complex, firm tannins, and zesty acidity. The Finish: is medium-long, with hints of leather, tobacco, and a touch of smoke. For the ultimate flavor extravaganza, pair with our pan-seared airline chicken, Thumbelina carrots, caramelized Brussels sprouts, and amazing game jus.
