Boxwood Estate Winery in the Middleburg Virginia AVA, is the fulfillment of a long-held dream by proprietor John Kent Cooke,Â a former owner and president of the NFL Washington Redskins. An admirer and collector of French wines, particularly great Bordeaux, Cooke and his new team at Boxwood are committed to making premium red wines in the Bordeaux tradition, but with their own, distinct Virginia expression: Boxwood, reflecting the "Medoc" style (a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Petit Verdot blend) and Topiary, in the "Saint-Emilion" style (a Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend). Boxwood also produces Trellis, a blend of Boxwood varietals changing every year relative to its vintage and a dry RosÃ© blended from select Boxwood varietals.The first vintage at Boxwood was 2006.
Boxwood Winery is located in an area steeped in Revolutionary and Civil War American history and renowned for world-famous horse farms. Today the area is also known as a wine region, Virginia being the fifth largest wine producing state. The Boxwood sustainable vineyards occupy 19 acres of the historic landmark farm, and are planted with traditional Bordeaux varietals, predominately Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, all ENTAV certified, by noted viticulturist Lucie Morton who continues to consult on the vineyard.
