Carroll Vineyards announced the arrival of two new wines: Vidal Blanc and Apple Wine, both made by master Loudoun winemaker Doug Fabioli, owner of Fabioli Cellars.
“I was very pleased to get the opportunity to work with Mike Carroll and Carroll Vineyards,” Fabioli said. “His location fits his personality and knowledge
as the gateway to DC’s Wine Country. That matches well with our ability to craft local grapes into dynamic and quality wines.”
Fabioli began his career in the Virginia Wine business in 1997 and has become one of the most awarded and well respected winemakers in the country. In 2016, his 2012 Cabernet Franc Reserve was included in the Virginia Governor’s Cup Case, the commonwealth’s highest wine industry honor.
Carroll started in the wine business at an early age. In 1988 he opened Leesburg Vintner on the corner of King and Loudoun Streets in downtown Leesburg. His shop has won numerous awards for its selection, knowledge and customer service including Virginia Wine Retailer of the Year. Carroll has been on the front line of Loudoun and Virginia’s wine movement from the start. In 2012, he and wife JoAnne started Carroll Vineyards where they grow grapes for their line of wines.
“We are very happy to be working with Doug Fabioli. A true leader in the industry,” Carroll said. “With Doug as our winemaker some great wines will be produced under the Carroll Vineyards label.”
Vidal Blanc, Apple Wine and other Carroll Vineyards’ labels are exclusively available now at Leesburg Vintner, the official tasting room of Carroll Vineyards.
