Barboursville’s winemaker honored
A North American wine industry trade publication has honored Barboursville Vineyards’ winemaker and general manager. Vineyard & Winery Management magazine’s November–December issue names Luca Paschina as one of the 20 leading individuals in North American wine. The only other person from Virginia to make the list was Lucie Morton of Warrenton, a viticulture authority who has advised a number of wineries across the state and throughout the world. Vineyard & Winery Management’s best-of-year buying guide also included four of Barboursville’s wines: Petit Verdot Reserve 2010, Nebbiolo Reserve 2010, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2010 and Octagon 2010, which will be released this spring.
