Our farm dates from the 1890s, although we are the first to grow grapes here. Our tasting room is an addition to the original house, a lovely Victorian. Our vineyard is located on a very old creek bed and is extremely porous and rocky, which helps the grapevines thrive.
We follow sustainable agriculture practices, and strive to be good stewards of the land. All of our trellising is made from cedars grown on our property which we had to clear to make way for the vineyard - no treated posts and recycling at its best!
We believe a great wine comes from great grapes. To that end, we spend most of our time in the vineyard, tending the grapes. We pick them at the optimal time to allow the wine to achieve it's highest potential on it's own with minimal interference from the winemaker.
All of our wine is crafted from 100% Virginia-grown grapes. Our goal is that they will eventually all be from estate-grown grapes. Our offerings include Pinot Gris (estate), Chardonnay, Viognier, Traminette, Seyval (estate), Vidal, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Carmine (estate), and Norton (estate). We also offer three semi-sweet blends (Velvet, Ashtaroot, and Adonis) and a dessert wine (Sweet Daisy). The regular tasting fee is $8 for eight wines and includes a souvenir glass.
