Best Wines to Taste at the Virgin Islands

Tasteful Wines of Virgin Islands

Virgin Islands (otherwise called as “U.S. Virgin Islands”) form an unincorporated territory of the U.S.

We all know that this is situated between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean to the east of Puerto Rico.

Previously, this territory was referred to as the Danish West Indies.

Along with the British Virgin Islands, this forms the Virgin Islands archipelago.
This territory, with its hilly to rugged mountainous terrain and little level lands, is found to be experiencing tropical climates.

The climates of this territory are being tempered by easterly trade winds. Thus, these islands have relatively low humidity levels with fewer temperature differences between seasons.

Recently, the Virgin Islands are found to be a place of several hurricanes when at the same time been affected by severe droughts and floods.

When it comes to viticulture, we cannot find any viticultural zone or vineyards as such on the islands.

Wine grape varieties

However, we won’t say that you can’t find any wines here. St. Croix on the islands has the home to the weeklong culinary festival here.

This festival is held every April as St. Croix Food & Wine Experience, which includes wine seminars and dinners.

A Note from St. John Winery

This is a famous winery in the Virgin Islands, the owners of which are producing wines in New Jersey.

On their website, they have mentioned that they have established the St. John Wine Lab at a secret location so as to hone their winemaking skills in a step towards opening the winery in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

A note from the website says that winemaking in the U.S. Virgin Islands will soon come true.

As wine lovers, we shall expect that all the grape varieties will soon be crushed, pressed, and bottled to awesome wines.

Now, we shall get to know the best wines to taste in U.S. Virgin Islands here:

Gewürztraminer, Trimbach, Alsace

This wine bottle can be bought for a price of $35 on the islands. This white wine is the fruitiest, as well as the spiciest of all the wine varietals here.

This unique wine from the 2010 vintage is pure and vibrant. I would say this is a must-try varietal that tastes great with spicy and exotic dishes.

Whenever you come to the islands, don’t forget to taste this wine along with cheese and desserts.

Moscato d’Asti, Nivole, Chiarlo

This is a lightly sparkling wine varietal that is available at the price of $20 on the islands.

I would say this sweet and fragrant wine has a delicate finish. With a light body, this wine has some vivid aromas and excellent flavours of peach and apricot.

Chablis, Drouhin

This is again a white wine from France. This Burgundy wine from the wine kingdom France is made from Chardonnay grape varietals.

This is a dry and fruity wine that is found to be easy on your taste buds. With pale golden colours and greenish hues, this wine is found to have some fresh aromas.

Thus, you can experience a long aftertaste with some exotic mineral notes.

The price is $34.

Puligny-Montrachet, Jadot

This is again a Burgundy white wine from France. The distinctive and concentrated fresh fruits and vanilla aromas of this wine would go on to the palate and culminate in a long-lasting lingering finish.

This wine is found to be having powerful mineral elements and hence, is racy, vibrant, and delicate. The price of this varietal is higher than the above-mentioned varietals.

This wine bottle is priced at $100.

Wines from all around the World

Thus, though we can’t find any winemaking and viticulture in the U.S. Virgin Islands, we can taste some of the best wines from across the globe here.

More importantly, they are available at some lesser costs. In the near future, we can expect some wines being produced on the island itself.

Let’s hope for the best!
