Fall is almost here! Our favorite time of the year, as we welcome in the cooler air, all the wonderful colors in the trees, and of course, our second Wine Club release of beautiful wines for our members to enjoy!
This year has been an exciting one for Lovingston Winery. In August, the Winery underwent an ownership change and welcomed Bill and Shelley Riley, their daughter Tessa, and her fiance, Wes as new owners – that’s us! We are excited to continue to build on the reputation Lovingston Winery has already generated in the area and plan to continue producing high quality wines for all to enjoy with the help of the entire winemaking, tasting room, and vineyard management team who are all continuing forward with us. What drew us to the property was a combination of the amazing wines, gorgeous farmhouse, panoramic views, and centuries-old oak trees. It truly was love at first sight and our plan, moving forward, is to share our property with you!
Beginning in October, we will open our doors to overnight stays in our 3 bed, 2 bath log cabin. The listing is posted on airBnB – have a look here. We are also preparing The Farmhouse for its own airBnB experience and hope to have it ready in November. Additionally, we are in the early stages of preparing a special Wine Club Member Open House to give you an up close and personal look at The Cabin and The Farmhouse as well as provide an opportunity for us to introduce ourselves and say hello in person! Keep an eye out for further communication as we set a date for this event soon.
Looking ahead, our 2021 harvest is shaping up to be one of the biggest and best yet! The grapes came in beautifully thanks to a summer of wonderful weather and great care of the vines. We cannot wait to see how the ’21 vintages come together over the coming months.
