As Thomas Jefferson once said, “No occupation is so delightful to me as the culture of the earth.” It seems only fitting that our founding father and fellow Virginian could sum up so eloquently the essence of the RdV philosophy. We created this vineyard out of a fervent desire to reconnect with nature. We intervene as little as possible in the natural process, letting the earth and the elements come together to create something sublime. All of the fruit that goes into our wine is grown right here on our estate and shepherded with care from vine to bottle. For our entire team, this undertaking is a labor of love.
