Vineyard Information
------------------------------------------------- 

Keswick Vineyards
------------------------------------------------- 

Keswick Vineyards is a 400 acre winery built on Edgewood Estate, a property rich with history dating to 1727. The hard work, dedication and skill of the team headed by the Schornbergs and winemaker Stephen Barnard has garnered repeated awards for our wines most notably Chardonnay, Viognier and Heritage. Stephens philosophy is "Aim for quality not quantity and develop the best wines possible". To ensure this goal our wines are produced from the highest quality fruit which is then hand picked and hand sorted. Keswick's tasting room is reminiscent of a grand horse-country barn with stunning views. 


Horton Vineyards
------------------------------------------------- 

Horton Vineyards, located in Orange County, Virginia, is one of the most innovative wineries in the country. Utilizing the latest viticultural techniques, Horton is charting a new generation of wines made from Viognier, the premier grape of France's Rhone Valley, and other premium varieties from southern France, Portugal, Spain, Russia/Georgia, and Italy. 


Barboursville Vineyards
------------------------------------------------- 

A magnificent and historic Virginia estate between Monticello and Montpelier, home to Virginia's most honored winery, founded in 1976 by a family prominent in Italian viticulture since 1821. Producer of Octagon, the most renowned red wine of Virginia. 

Please feel free to pass the word to friends, family, and/or co-workers that may be interested in going on the trip.
