Swirls: Virginia wine served at Clinton wedding

I don’t know why I find this so fascinating, but I’ve been just a bit, shall we say, obsessed in recent days in my desire to find out what wineskluge were served at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding over the weekend (I promise to stop after this). The Hook, a website in Charlottesville, Virginia, is reporting that two sparkling wines  from the Kluge Estate Winery and Vineyard were offered, one an all-chardonnay blanc de blancs and the other a rosé (The Hook also has the interesting back story here). A check of the winery’s website reveals that the 2007 Kluge Estate SP Blanc de Blancs sells for $28, as does the 2007 SP Rosé, a blend of 95 percent chardonnay and five percent pinot noir. So, at this point, we know that a local New York white (Clinton Vineyards’ Tribute seyval blanc) and Virginia wines had roles at the wedding.  Anyone know of any others? Clearly there must have been a red or two.
