Hours: Year Round
The grounds at Hillsborough have exchanged some interesting hands over the years and the house and Tasting Room are a little more mature than your average winery. George William Fairfax, son of Col. William Fairfax, originally owned the land. George William, a close childhood friend of our first President George Washington, lived together for a while at the Fairfax's estate in Mount Vernon.
George William Fairfax sold the land to James Nelson in 1778 and it exchanged hands several times until David Lovett bought the plot in 1812. One of 11 children, David built the original 2 story field-stone house on the land in early 1820. The adjacent barn, which now serves as the Tasting Room, was built sometime later in that decade.
Exchanging hands furthermore, the land was purchased by Mr. William B. Curtis in the early 1900's. Mr. Curtis built the 1-1/2 story field stone addition to both sides of the original house around 1940. In the early 1950's, Hans Rudolph Stamm was commissioned to build the remainder of the house. The present owners, The Baki family, completed final renovations to both the house and Tasting Room in early 2003.
