History

After spending twenty-five years in the food and beverage industry on the Jersey Shore, we headed to South Florida , where we purchased raw land, north of the Everglades, just east of the Great Cypress Swamp. After months of clearing jungle like conditions, we planted a tree farm and established a plant nursery. Having had twenty years as a very successful business, the Government approached us to acquire the land for a project to restore and save the Everglades. It was a good reason to sell and we could retire!! And retire we did, only to find after a couple of years we were bored and needed an inspiration.

With our background, we decided we wanted to be part of the emerging East Coast wine industry. We searched up and down the region and finally found what we felt was the perfect parcel, 35 acres in the Tryon Foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Polk County, North Carolina had a rich history of growing and selling grapes in the late 1800’s. Now with the area having over 20 vineyards and 3 wineries, we knew this was the place to begin. And begin we did…clearing the trees and thickets, preparing the soil and planting over 4000 grape vines. Although we were familiar with this, we made an outstanding discovery…we’re 31 years older (ouch!) and yet another adventure begins!!!

Estate Vineyards / AVA

In 2007, we bought a beautiful 35 acre parcel in Polk County, North Carolina, located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

For the past seven years, we have been developing a vineyard with seven and a half acres of wine grapes, including Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chambourcin, Petit Manseng and Muscat.
