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 the Walsh Family Vineyard, located in Loudoun County, Virginia.
Sarah and Nate Walsh are firmly dedicated to the production and sales of premium wine.
Nate Walsh is a career winegrower. Starting as a cellar rat at Horton Vineyards, in Central, Virginia, he went on to work in vineyards and wineries in the Willamette Valley and Central Otago before spending seven years as the winemaker and vineyard manager for Sunset Hills Vineyard, in Purcellville, Virginia, during a time of large expansion. It was during this time that he began searching for a site from which he knew one could create truly premium Virginia wine.
Sarah, conversely, comes from a background of fine dining, fine wine sales, and wine education. Beginning her career at restaurants in Chicago, Atlanta, and Northern Virginia, Sarah shifted into fine wine sales, working for a wholesaler/importer on the East Coast. She holds a Diploma from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust. Sarah and Nate met in 2012, married in 2013, and founded Walsh Family Wine in 2014.
Farming numerous distinctive sites throughout Northern Virginia, they strive to produce wines reflective of place. Most of their bottlings are vineyard-designate wines, and in time they hope to continually realize the uniqueness of these sites through thoughtful winegrowing, both in the vineyard and cellar.
