Rosemont’s Phase I Reopening Plan

First, we’d like to thank everyone for your continued support over these past few weeks while we’ve been continuing business with curbside pickup and shipments.  We have been so touched by the outpouring of support and wines leaving the building, and we hope you’ve been enjoying all of that wine!

 

We are happy to announce that we will be able to welcome guests back to our grounds starting
THIS Friday, May 15th

 

The following are a set of guidelines, set forth by the state of Virginia, that we are asking all patrons to follow while enjoying their time with us: 

 

  • We will be still be offering curbside pickups, local deliveries, and free ground shipping on orders over $75.

 

  • Guests MUST make a reservation to enjoy wine on-premise by calling the Winery directly at 434-636-9463.  At this time, we are only allowed to serve guests outside and we have two options available:

 

Option One: A table located on either the patio or on the Rosemont lawn.  All reserved tables will be for a two-hour time period.  A $50 deposit is required at the time of reservation, and this money can be used towards bottles of wine to consume on-site or to take home.

 

Option Two:  We will also offer a very limited number of tent spaces on the upper level of the lawn, closest to the vineyard.  These spaces can be rented for $100.  That money, unfortunately, cannot be used towards the purchase of wine, HOWEVER, your assigned space will be yours for the entire day.  Customers renting these spaces may bring their own tents, tables, and chairs to enjoy their time on our property.  Please note that we will not be providing these items.

 

  • Reservations for either of these options can be made for groups of no more than 10 guests.  We apologize, but we are unable to split larger groups to separate tables.  We ask that you do NOT visit with guests at other tables, and refrain from wandering around the property.  Your reserved table will be your designated space for your time spent here.  If you have children with you, please understand that they will not be allowed to run around the lawn and must remain with you at all times.

 

  • We will not be offering wine tastings or individual glasses of wine.  Wines are available for purchase by the bottle only.  Our staff can recork any unfinished bottles so that you may take them with you.

 

  • Wine glasses are available by request, are $5.00, and are yours to take home at the end of the day.  You are more than welcome to bring your own wine glass, or we can supply you with a free plastic cup.

 

  • All sales will occur at your assigned space.  We are unable to sell any wine or other items inside of the winery currently.  The inside of the Winery is reserved for bathroom use only, and we will be monitoring bathroom availability to ensure appropriate social distancing.

 

  • Our staff is wearing masks for your protection!  We would ask that you also wear a mask for us when you are away from your table.

 

  • The safety of our guests and employees is of the utmost importance to us.  We ask that if you or anyone in your group are sick or have felt sick in the last 72 hours that you please visit us at a later date.  Customers who appear to have symptoms associated with COVID will be asked to leave immediately without a refund.

 

Again, we are so excited to welcome your smiling faces back to the winery and hopefully, we can all work together to ensure that we are able to enjoy reopening in a safe environment.

 

We will begin taking reservations on Thursday and look forward to hopefully seeing you soon!

Justin Rose named Virginia Wine Person of the Year

We would like to congratulate our winemaker, Justin Rose, on being named the 2020 Virginia Wine Person of the Year!  Justin received this recognition from his fellow peers who nominated and ultimately voted for him during the 2020 Virginia Governor’s Cup celebration held in Richmond on Tuesday, February 25th.

After receiving a “Past President” award for his time spent leading the Virginia Wineries Association (VWA) from 2015 – 2019, he was then surprised to be named “Wine Person of the Year,” by the current president of the Virginia Winery Association, George Hodson of Veritas Vineyards.  This award is given annually by the VWA to a person (or persons) deserving recognition for service to the wine industry over the preceding year.

While serving as President of the VWA, Justin also participated on eight separate VWA committees, spearheaded the campaign to increase the association’s annual meeting to include a second day focused exclusively on technical winemaking, and also served as a member of the Legislative Collective which works on all Virginia Wine associated legislation.

We were also honored to pour our 2017 Cabernet Franc during the celebration, as a result of it receiving a Gold Medal in the 2020 Virginia Governor’s Cup Competition.  Made from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes grown on our estate, the wine was aged in barrels for 20 months prior to bottling.

We would like to give a heartfelt congratulations to Justin for all of his hard work!  Not only here at the Winery, but also for his hard work for our entire industry!

Have you been dreaming about a European vacation?  Ever given any thought to going on a River Cruise?  Do you enjoy the thought of traveling but worry about traveling alone and having to set your own itinerary?  How about joining our winemaker, Justin Rose, in November 2021, for a Viking River Cruise that will take you from Zürich to Paris over a 12-day tour.

We will spend two full days in Zürich before embarking to visit the university town of Heidelberg; enjoy scenic cruising past the town of Sankt Goar, home of the Lorelei Rock, and through the Rhine Gorge, a UNESCO Site; taste Moselle Rieslings and visit the wine town of Bernkastel-Kues; discover Roman Trier; pay our respects at the Luxembourg American Cemetery. All while cruising the vineyard-flanked slopes and historic cities, to our final two-day stay in Paris.

Now is a great time to book, as they’re offering $500 savings per cabin if you book by the end of January!  If you’d like more information, we are partnering with Dial Family Travel, and you can visit their site to get more information on what rooms are available, pricing, etc. www.dialfamilytravel.com/group/RVVRC21

Traveling with Rosemont also means that you will receive perks from being a part of our group, as well as an invitation to our “Pre-Cruise Party” where you’ll get to meet everyone traveling along with us, try regional cuisine, and experience regional wines prior to setting sail.  This will be our fifth cruise, and we are so looking forward to traveling with you!
