Lovingston Winery, located in the rolling countryside of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is dedicated to the production of the highest-quality wines. Primarily family-run along with head winemaker Riaan Rossouw, we take great pride in offering a pleasing experience in every bottle.
Our Josie’s Knoll Vineyard site consists of 10.5 acres of densely-planted vines — ranging from the Bordeaux varietals of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot to the South African Pinotage as well as Seyval Blanc, Chardonnay, and Petit Manseng. This “dense-planting” — 1200 vines to the acre — stems from the idea that by limiting the number of grape bunches a vine is able to produce, that vine concentrates all of its energy into those fewer clusters, increasing the quality of the fruit.
The winery, built into a hillside on the family farm, employs a gravity-flow production method, allowing us to virtually eliminate the use of pumps and other mechanization. In addition, we ferment the grapes in relatively small quantities to allow for a more hands-on approach to winemaking and increased quality control.
Please come by for a tasting and learn more about us!
We hope you enjoy what Lovingston has to offer.
