Try our Award-winning Wines
After our two years of friendly competition in the Monticello Cup, we are proud to announce that five of our wines are medal winners! Thank you to the Monticello Wine Trail judges for awarding medals to our 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2020 Rosé, 2020 Petit Manseng, 2021 Cabernet Franc, and 2021 Sauvignon Blanc.
We have a 30+ year history of growing some of Virginia’s finest wine grapes right here in Albemarle County. We’ve been supplying many of Virginia’s best wineries with Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot fruit since the mid-1990’s from our vineyard planted on Carter Mountain.
In 2017, we planted a vineyard in Batesville and added Petit Verdot, Petit Manseng, and Sauvignon Blanc grapes to our lineup. Our newest acreage of grapes was planted at Chiswell in 2021 and includes Chambourcin, Vidal Blanc, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot.
