Gabriele Rausse wines bear an unmistakable European stamp. Clean structure, clear fruit flavors, judicious use of oak and realistic pricing catapult his wines to the top echelon in Virginia wines.
One could easily say that the wines reflect the maker, Gabriele Rausse. The charming Italian winemaker is the man to seek for vineyard consulting.
The winery is located in Charlottesville on a seven-acre vineyard. Gabriele buys most of his fruit from the vineyards that he has planted for several growers. Rausse makes all of the products at his winery with the help of his son, Tim.
The winery is open to the public by appointment only, as Gabriele works full time overseeing the garden grounds of Monticello.
