They say wine is made in the vineyard

 

Ours begin as grapes grown both in the piedmont and here on the estate. The fruit at Upper Shirley Vineyards is bathed by river breezes and nourished in the Tidewater region’s deep Pamunkey soil, the oldest tilled earth in the United States. We tend our vines by hand, using age-old methods. It’s demanding work but worth the effort. One taste, and you’ll understand why.
