Profile Information

Company Name
Iron Horse Vineyards
About my company:
Iron Horse is best known for Sparkling Wines, which have been served at the White House since 1985, beginning with the historic U.S.-Russian Summit Meetings ending the Cold War, at the White House Millennium celebrations ushering in the new century, and most recently at the White House dinner honoring the Pope.

Our Chardonnay is considered a signature wine for the cool, foggy Green Valley region. Pinot Noir is the winery’s rising star wine.

Iron Horse has been named an American icon in a reference book published by Random House called “Icons of the American Market Place”. Listed in alphabetical order, Iron Horse takes its place between iPod and Jack Daniel’s, validating Iron Horse’s reputation as a brand backed by pride, passion and quality.

The winery was named after a railroad stop, which crossed the property at the turn of the century.

Hello Joy,
I understand that you have a passion for wine. Well, that makes it two of us…
Anyway, I’m re-launching my website in about a week and I’m looking for wine lovers (like yourself) to become “official bloggers” of the site and talk about their regions and their wine-related passions.
Would you be interested?
With my best regards,

Joy, the first week of the month is always a little hectic for me, but if you are available Tuesday July 8th, I am pretty flexible that day. If there are other times that are better that week, I'm sure I could make it work. It was really great to hear back from you and I look forward to talking to you later. sincerely, Lindi
