Munchkin Wines with the Foxes on Valentine's Day

Three Fox Vineyards
Delaplane, Virginia

What's a girl to do when her fiance isn't around on Valentine's Day? Wine, of course.

So Europup Munchkin took a group of friends on a whirlwind tour of Paris (Virginia), then stopped in for a taste of Italy at Three Fox Winery.

One lick of the Alouette Cabernet Franc and Munchkin's ears perked straight up, along with her spirits. It's clear why this rich wine scored 87 points from Wine Enthusiast (check it out in the February issue) -- one of the highest score ever achieved by a red wine from Virginia.

Hostess Holli treated Munchkin to a VIP preview of the 2008 Il Volpe Sangiovese, which is scheduled for release on March 7. Expect lots of buzz about this super Super Tuscan wine.

Pomeroy got out of the dog house by inviting Munchkin over for a lovely dinner and promised to escort her to Three Fox's special "Piano Lounge" on Sunday, February 28, featuring winemaker John Todhunter at the keyboard.

The Piano Lounge was a howling success. Renaisance Man John played and sang Cole Porter and other standards to the delight of a full house of dogs and humans. The newly tented front patio was warm and toasty thanks to a series of propane heaters, the blazing sun, and of course, wonderful Three Fox wines.

Hostess Holli served up dog biscuits, but Munchkin only had eyes for the burgers being grilled to order by Three Fox neighbor Clark.

A delovely afternoon. Munchkin and Pomeroy look forward to encore performances!
