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.
We are featuring Rosemont of Virginia in southern Virginia.
The 450 acres that make up the Rosemont Estate has been in the Rose Family since 1858, with the home place actually dating back to the mid-1700s. Over generations, farming operations have included vegetable farming, a peach orchard, beef cattle, dairy farming, and commodity crops such as hay, tobacco, corn, and soybeans.
In 2003 they continued the journey as stewards of the land, planting over 32,000 grapevines across 22 acres. Construction of the Winery began in November of 2006, with a beautiful early American style building that houses a state of the art gravity-flow wine production facility underground and in 2007 they produced their first in-house vintage.
You’ll discover that they combine knowledge of the land with modern winemaking techniques to produce premium handcrafted wines, all of which are 100% estate-grown, produced, and bottled on their estate. Being involved in every aspect of winemaking, from bud break to harvest and bottling, allows them to produce wines of the greatest quality that showcase this great Virginia terroir.
