October 2020 is Virginia Wine Month
This gives us a great opportunity
to highlight some of the many
incredible wineries we’ve visited
over the years.
We look forward to visiting these
wineries again very soon.
Introducing Glen Manor Vineyards, a Virginia winery approximately 70 miles west of Washington D.C., situated on a western flank of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The surrounding mountains, ranging between 1400 and 3400 feet in elevation, form a Glen which gives the vineyards a unique environment: A world of its own. The vines grow high on very steep mountain slopes characterized by deep, well-draining, and rocky soils.
Today, the estate comprises 212 acres of pastures, forests, and currently 17 acres of vineyards. It is surrounded by neighboring farms and mountain forests, and they share a common border with Shenandoah National Park to the east. The farm is recognized by the Commonwealth of Virginia as a Century Farm for being owned and farmed by five generations of their family for over 100 years.
Steeped in history, both of family and of the mountainside, Glen Manor Vineyards produces wines with a sense of place: the soils, the seasons, and the people who make these wines happen. Accordingly, many of their wines carry the names of those that have dedicated themselves to this place.
