Wine Country 
Rollin’ with my playas on a Monday afternoon.
Chillin’ with the crew in a metaphysical room

Catchin’ up, crackin’ up, give a dog a bone
These dudes from out of town ain’t never going home

Always foggy in San Fran, always sunny up here. 
It’s clear, for years, your ears, have been vibing our sound

My friend from the east, said this day was the best
She was impressed with the lack of seriousness

Cause it’s bound to confound you, when the world spins around you
So we represent where we is, and we spit rhymes like this

Just one thing missing from this blessed day
A big ol’ magnum of cuvee Chardonnay!

Wine Country 

That’s how we roll in wine country

That’s how we play in wine country

That’s how we do in wine country
Ya’ll other states think we done lost our minds
educate yourselves, read a book, and drink some wine

you got beer, you got liquor, and Soju in Korea
but that stuff is weak sauce and it tastes like mehhh…

To all the amateurs out there who are drinking that swill
You must respect the best before you get ill

We’re living the dream over here in LoCO
Cause our sommeliers eat beignets, and drink wine out of gold

Just cause we like vino don’t make us shallow
Just ask Ernest and Julio Gallo

Like Bob Marley, no chains around our feet, but we not free…
Unless we up in -

Wine Country 

That’s how we roll in wine country

That’s how we play in wine country

That’s how we do in wine country

I got a bee sting
Where’s the Riesling?!

What’s on deck?
Where’s the Malbec?!

Lost your dog?
Where’s the Cabernet Sauvignon?!

Girlfriend a spaz?
Drink some Shiraz!

Take it up a notch?
Just chug some Grenache!

Got attacked by a crab claw?
Get you some Syrah!

Need something cleaner?
Drink Gruner Vetliner!

Wine Country 

That’s how we roll in wine country

That’s how we play in wine country

That’s how we do in wine country

Wine Country …Wine Country 

Loudoun County… I see you!  Monticello AVA... Where you at?!

International Shout outs Bordeaux, Burgundy… Where you at?! 

Tuscany… Veneto, Italy! 

Get your swirl on. Get your swirl on.

It's officially Summer and you know what that means...  Summer concerts, fine wine, grilling out, laying out at the beach and enjoying the sun and fun.  And when we go swimming, of course we like to swim in fine knit wear...
Can't go to the beach?  Why not celebrate a stay-cation with some Tarara wines?  Our Tasting Room is open seven days a week and our excellent staff is ready to welcome and provide you with all of your needs!
Come check out our themed Premier Tastings - this month we're featuring white wines from across the vini-spectrum, and in August it's all about terroir!
And what could be finer that hanging out at a winery? (OK, it almost rhymed...)  How about hanging out at a winery's Lakeside Lawn and having the convenience of tastings and sales at our Wine Kiosk?  Yep, we're set up to supply your bucolic Seurat-like scene (see below) with delicious Tarara wine while you relax under the shade!  Check it!
