In 2006, Mary Hughes and David Vermillion purchased a 32-acre farm for the purpose of growing grapes. They chose this Shenandoah Valley location specifically because of its suitability for growing grapes: limestone-based soils, low humidity and rainfall, and reliable daily breezes as well as the slopes and elevation. The ripening grapes also benefit from cool night-time temperatures in August and September, which permit sugar to increase without loss of the acidity that provides the necessary structure and balance found in fine wine.
