"We found the new 2015 Slater Run Vineyards wines to be truly wonderful. These were all very well-balanced wines with long lasting finishes... We are big fans of Katell Griaud. She is making really lovely wine in our state. We recommend you head over to The Local Taste to try these well-made Virginia wines from Slater Run Vineyards. You will be glad you did." More here.
"I was able to taste four of the Slater Run wines. Both the Pinot Gris and the Chardonnay were expertly crafted, balanced whites that demonstrated the typical varietal characteristics... I must say, however, the star of the show was the Cabernet Franc. It lacked any hint of green pepper, which indicates proper vineyard management. The vines were only planted in 2010, which makes the quality of this wine all the more surprising." More here.

"Over the last few years we’ve visited over 100 wineries across the state of Virginia, enjoying the beauty of the countryside, educating ourselves on the industry, and fueling our passion for Virginia Wine with each visit. While nearly all of our experiences in Virginia Wine Country are something to write about, there are some that simply stand out above the rest. If you’ve ever experienced that moment when a glass of wine strikes all the senses– the sight, smell, taste, and sound enveloping you in a perfect moment in time– then you know exactly what we are talking about. This weekend, we had one of these very experiences sampling wines from Slater Run Vineyards at The Local Taste in Upperville, VA." More here.
"They retained Katell Griaud as winemaker. She holds a masters degree in Oenology from Bordeaux University and has made wine at both Trump and Casanel. So she approaches the task with an understanding of the challenges of making wine in the Commonwealth. I should point out that she has handily overcome those challenges. The Slater Run wines are exceptional." More here.

Family- Run Winery & Vineyard in Upperville, Virginia
"My Saturday trek began at The Local Taste, a cozy tasting room owned by Chris and Kiernan Patusky. Located on Route 50 just as you approach Upperville, The Local Taste remains something of an untapped treasure in the local wine scene. The rustic, early 19th century stone house serves as both the tasting room for Slater Run Vineyards and a wine shop with worldly offerings hand-selected from respected sommelier Neal Wavra."
