There has been a flurry of activity at the Spinning Jenny construction site. It will be time for harvest before you know it.
WINERY & TASTING ROOM GROUNDBREAKING
An unseasonably warm February led to an early groundbreaking. Follow the progress here and on our Facebook page.
THE PLANS ARE COMING TOGETHER
COMING IN 2018
Spinning Jenny has BIG plans for 2018. Construction of a winery and tasting room, full harvest of Year 1 & Year 2 vines, and planting a new grape variety!
FIRST FULL HARVEST SEASON BEGINS
Let the growing season begin!
SECOND YEAR HARVEST
SEPTEMBER 8, 2016
We didn't expect to make wine this year, but did a mini harvest of 22 pounds of pinot gris. So, we bought a bucket, sulfite and yeast and we're off!
SPINNING JENNY VINEYARD IS BORN
Our First Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay
THAT'S A WRAP ON 2019!
Spinning Jenny Vineyard's first year is in the books! We want to thank everyone who visited the tasting room to support our farm winery.
As for 2020, we are tentatively planning to open April 10th with several new varietals so stay tuned! Until then, we encourage you to visit some of the other fantastic area vineyards here in the NRV.
SPINNING JENNY VINEYARD 2019 HARVEST!
This year’s harvest included five varieties from our vineyard. We also sourced grapes from Fariss Farms for a total yield of just over 6,000 pounds. Thanks to everyone who helped get these beautiful grapes picked and fermented into 400 gallons of Virginia Farm wine.
