Vineyard and winery tours are available, music, wine, and a day of fun for everyone. 2014 Harvest Our harvest is in full swing now. We picked our Chardonnay back on September 4th and kept about 3.5 tons and sent 3.4 tons to Chateau Morrisette. Then on September 7 we picked about 1.8 tons of Barbera with the help of a lot of our friends. We have gotten too much rain at the end of the growing season here, so they needed to get in tanks and away from Mother Nature! We picked our Traminette on September 9, sending about 2 tons to Morrisette and keeping almost 3 tons for us. Our Vidal Blanc will be picked tomorrow, September 16 (Dad's birthday). We will let you know how that one goes! That leaves the Cabernet Franc to be picked soon we hope. Our new destemmer/crusher is working out better than we even hoped it would, and we are looking forward to trying out our new must pump and three new tanks that we have put in at the winery. Come over and see us soon, and watch the harvest if you would like.

 1    HISTORY AROUND US: EDGEWOOD - REYNOLDS HOMESTEAD - CRITZ
12NOON
1—Wednesday—History Around Us: Edgewood: The Sam and Carolyn Davis House. Sam and Carolyn Davis will present a talk on “Edgewood,” an imposing 1830s manor house, located on Old Stage Road in Stanleytown, Henry County, Virginia. First constructed for Major John Redd, Edgewood had ten previous owners before the Davis family acquired it in 2003. Major renovations were conducted in the 1950s under the famed architect W. Roy Wallace. The beautiful home, a Palladian three-part form, with flanking wings and six fireplaces, is made of Flemish bond brick. During the 19th century, Old Stage Road was known as the Great Wagon Road, used for travel from Salem, Virginia to Salem, North Carolina. Previously, in the mid-1700s, this road was used by the Moravians coming from Pennsylvania to establish their settlement in Bethabara, NC. Bring a bagged lunch, sit back, and learn through photographs and discussion about this unique home and the history that surrounds us. FREE. Noon.
