Regional Wine Tasting Series:
Join the French Broad Vignerons on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at 1:00 pm as we enjoy an educational event via Zoom for North Carolina regional wine. We will be tasting the Pea Ridge Red Blend from Parker-Binns Vineyard. Justin Taylor, winemaker at Parker-Binns, will lead us through the tasting.
Originally from Atlanta, Justin Taylor started working with Total Wine & More to finance his education, when a visit to the Shelton-Badgett Center for Viticulture & Enology in 2011 sparked the desire to apply for the Associate of Applied Science degree program. Justin and his family settled in Western North Carolina, where he worked as Assistant Winemaker to Tom Payette at Burntshirt Vineyards in Hendersonville, NC from 2014-2016. In the spring of 2017, Justin became the winemaker at Parker-Binns Vineyard in Polk County, NC. He has taken great interest in the varietals yet to be cultivated in this region that could dramatically improve the quality of North Carolina wine.
The Pea Ridge Red Blend is a dual vintage blend of 46% Cabernet Franc, 28% Merlot, and 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, and shows off aromas of ripe brambles and raspberry preserves with rich earthiness on the finish.
Participation in this Zoom event is open to members of the French Broad Vignerons as well as non-members.
The price per bottle is $23, and the event price for non-members is $10 (no event fee for FBV members). You can pick up the wine from winery or have it shipped, for which there is a two bottle minimum.
