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.
Today we are featuring Pearmund Cellars, located in the beautiful foothills of eastern Fauquier County.
Pearmund Cellars is conveniently close to Northern Virginia and Washington, DC. Our 7500-square-foot geothermal winery and 25-acre vineyard produces Chardonnay, Viognier, Riesling, Late Harvest Vidal, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Ameritage, and other award-winning Virginia wines.
Established in 1976 by Chris Pearmund, the vineyard originally hosted nine different grape varieties. Today they only grow chardonnay on the property, as they are the most successful grapes to grow with respect to the terroir. They have 15 acres and 11,000 vines of Chardonnay, cultivars or clones of Chardonnay to help increase the complexity of wine.
Chris Pearmund is one of Virginia’s most widely recognized and well respected winegrowers and winemakers. He has over 25 years experience as a winemaker, vineyard manager and winery operator. Chris is the “go-to” guy if you want to understand the wine industry from berry to bottle. He has taught and mentored numerous professionals in the industry.
