Event description
Join the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital for a sustainable wine tasting fundraiser with Hunt Country Vineyards.

About this event

The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital (DCEFF) is excited to partner with Hunt Country Vineyards for a virtual conversation about the effects of climate change on wine and how sustainable practices and diversity in grapes can help ensure the future of fine wine. With each ticket purchase, participants will receive a trio of wines from Hunt Country Vineyards’ UNCHARTED TERROIR line of wines.

Last date to order for shipping: Sunday, January 23

Shipping and delivery restrictions apply. More information on shipping can be found below and on the Hunt Country Vineyards website.

About the Wines:

Terroir is the characteristic taste, flavor, and essence of a particular place imparted to a wine by the environment in which it is produced. It is the result of the unique soils and microclimate in a vineyard - including the temperatures, sunlight, airflow, rainfall, and the slope of the vineyards. It can also include the human aspects, such as the different farming and winemaking practices.

Terroir is the history and flavor of a place, captured in each bottle.

The UNCHARTED TERROIR line of wines reflects the quality of the land and pushes the envelope in fine winemaking using resilient, regionally-adapted grape varieties. These wines embody the Hunt family’s tradition of land stewardship and celebrates the creativity and innovation that winemaking will require in an uncertain climate future.

We are pleased to share with you the below trio of wines from the UNCHARTERED TERROIR line:

  • 2019 Uncharted Terroir Chambourcin: Made from a teinturier variety of hybrid grape known for its high acid. Being aged for 9 months in neutral oak softened the edges of this wine and brought out a bright cherry and red fruit finish. Alcohol 12.3% | Residual Sugar 0.6% | Total Acidity 6.4 g/L | pH 3.35
  • 2020 Uncharted Terroir Vidal Blanc: Vidal Blanc is one of our favorite regionally-adapted grape varieties. We make our Ice Wine with this grape. But whereas Ice Wine is sweet, this Uncharted Terroir Vidal Blanc is nearly bone dry. You'll taste grapefruit and hints of pineapple with strong acid. Alcohol 12.5% | Residual Sugar 0.5% | Total Acidity 7.2 g/L | pH 3.42
  • 2020 Uncharted Terroir Vignoles: White wines are rarely fermented on the skins. But the Uncharted Terroir Vignoles spent 9 days on its skins, in stainless steel. The result is a gorgeous wine that's complex in aromatics and texture. Alcohol 13.9% | Residual Sugar 2.5% | Total Acidity 8.9 g/L | pH 3.65
