Our 15 acre vineyard was established in 2001. We grow Viognier, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Muscat Canelli, Chambourcin, and two varieties of muscadine grapes - Carlos and Noble.
All of our wines are made from the grapes grown here in our vineyard and are crafted by our winemaker in our on-site winery.
Our wines have won high awards, locally, nationally and internationally. View the wine awards here.
