- Located an hour west of Washington D.C., and founded by John Kent Cooke, Boxwood was conceived as, and designed to mimic, a classic Bordeaux estate. Vineyards are laid out in traditional two meter by one meter Bordelais fashion and the grapes are hand-harvested. Their 2010 Estate offering is gravity-fed into steel fermenters and ages for one year in French (natch) oak.
