As many of you know, in the spring of 2016 we will be planting an additional 3 ½ acres of grapes in the front of the Winery, Block H. The Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah, and Tannat that we are planting are vital to ensuring that we remain 100% estate grown, and will help us keep up with the growing demand for premium Rosemont of Virginia red wines in the future.
We’ve developed a unique way for you to become a part of our growing vineyard by offering you a chance to “Adopt A Vine.” Well, a row actually! The new vineyard will include 44 rows of grapes, and this is a great opportunity to get in on the ground level and see just what is involved with establishing a vineyard!
Adoption Cost: $300
To participate in this exciting and educational program, we are offering a one-time payment of $300, taxes included. In addition to a handsome plaque engraved with your name that will be displayed on your adopted row of vines for the next 40 to 50 years! You will also receive the following unique experience and benefits:
2016 | Planting: Join us April 9 – 10 to plant some of the vines in your row.
2017 | Learn to Prune: Join us March 11 – 12 to learn the art of pruning your vines.
2018 | Train Your Vine: Join us March 10 – 11 to prune and train your vine for the year ahead.
2018 | Harvest: Help harvest your grapes! Harvest will take place at different intervals depending on variety, but we will alert you in advance when we’ll be picking your varietal.
2018 | Harvest Party! Well host a large harvest party for a successful harvest of Block H! Date and time to be determined at a later date.
2019 | Barrel Tasting: Join us March 16 – 17 to taste the first wines made from your vines!

Of course you and your friends can visit your adopted vines at any time to check on their progress and see how they’re growing! Talking to them helps encourage them to produce great fruit – we do it all the time!

Please note, that the program is being offered first to our Rosemont Club Members. Beginning on March 1st, we will open up the program for all other interested parties! You may either turn your application into the Winery directly, or you can email them to Aubrey@rosemontofvirginia.com directly.
We will still accept adoptions for vines after planting if there are still rows available. All rows will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. We cannot guarantee your first selection for row and/or varietal preference, but will make every effort to do so!
