Late Harvest Vidal Blanc

Aroma of honeysuckle, ripe apricot, mango and banana. Balanced acidity.

John Marshall Declaration

This very select wine is by far the most limited and special wine crafted from the hearts and minds of our winemakers. Made in the traditional Madiera style with sun and air aging. Four years in oak barrels and over a year in the bottle prior to release. Only 82 cases were produced, with every bottle hand numbered. The wine is balanced and stable with mandarin orange notes. Once open the wine will open into navel orange and remain drinkable for months, if not years.

Chocolate Lab

A beautifully crafted and totally unique dessert wine. Port style, 100% Chambourcin infused with cracked cocoa nibs. Aged in American oak and recovered whiskey barrels.

Vintner

It was Sharon Roeder’s dream to grow grapes and to make wine that gave birth to Barrel Oak. Her background was in international affairs with a Master’s degree from Georgetown.  But the path sent her in a surprising direction and she realized that she wanted out of the rat race.  Once the decision was made she began interning in 2006 at the surrounding Fauquier wineries as a cellar rat, reading the literature, and taking local classes.  In 2007 she assisted with producing Barrel Oak’s first vintage and in 2008 she manged her first harvest and vintage.  In the years since she has never looked back, producing over 100 gold medal wines and living her dream to the fullest.
