Our Adopt-A-Vine Program Is Back!

We are happy to announce that we are now offering our Adopt-A-Vine program again, for a new planting that will be happening this Spring!  We are adding an acre of Mourvedre to the vineyard across from the Winery and have decided to again offer our “Adopt A Vine” program.  Just in time for the holidays, this would make a great gift for any wine lover! 

Mourvedre is a new varietal for us here at Rosemont and we are excited to finally work with it.  In the Rhône region of France, it is typically blended with Syrah and Grenache to make a blend that we call a GSM.  It generally has a fuller body with dark fruit flavors and we are looking forward to blending it with Syrah or seeing it on its own in the future!

This new planting will only include 12 rows of grapes!  This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about what goes into making your bottle of wine.  Adopting a row of vines will allow you 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, plus tax.  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:

2021 | Planting: Join us in April to plant some of the vines in your row.  Date TBD.
2022 | Learn to Prune: Join us in March to learn the art of pruning your vines.  Date TBD.
2023 | Train Your Vine: Join us in March to prune and train your vine for the year ahead. Date TBD.
2023 | Harvest: Help harvest your grapes! Date TBD.
2023 | Harvest Party!  We’ll host a large harvest party for a successful harvest. Date TBD.
2024 | Barrel Tasting: Join us to taste the first wines made from your vines!
2025| Receive your 1st bottle of wine produced from your grapes: 2023 vintage.
2026 | Receive your 2nd bottle of wine produced from your grapes: 2024 vintage.
2027 | Receive your 3rd bottle of wine produced from your grapes: 2025 vintage.

Of course, you 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 December 15th, we will open up the program for all other interested parties!  If you are interested, please email your application directly to Aubrey@rosemontofvirginia.com or give us a call here at the Winery, 434-636-9463.

This has been a very successful program the past two times that we have offered this opportunity.  Rows sell out quickly, so if you are interested, please let us know as soon as possible!  All rows will be assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.  

Now Taking Reservations!

We are happy to announce that you can now make a reservation to schedule your visit to the Winery!  Reservations are not required, however, they are highly recommended.  Each reservation slot is for 1 hour and 45 minutes, which will allow you and your guests time to experience wine flights and enjoy a glass of wine and picnic with us.  You’ll be able to choose your location, date, and time when you’d like to visit.

As the days get cooler, making a reservation will help to ensure that you’ll be guaranteed a table upon your arrival at the Winery.  And, making a reservation is easy!

To make a reservation CLICK HERE, or call us directly at 434-636-9463.

If you have more than 8 guests in your group, please call the winery directly to make special arrangements!

Please note:

  1. If you make a reservation for an outdoor table, we may not be able to accommodate a move to an indoor table in the case of inclement weather.
  2. We cannot accept same-day reservations through our online portal.  Please call us at 434-636-9463 to see what we have available.
  3. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your reservation, your reservation will be canceled and your table may be given to someone else.

 

Now Operating Under Phase III Guidelines

We are now operating under Phase III of the Governor’s Reopen Virginia plan.  Many of the guidelines that applied during Phase II remain, so there will not be much of a change if you visited us during Phase II.  Here are the main things to know, before you arrive:

 

  • The Governor has issued an Executive Order mandating the use of masks while inside the Winery.  Please ensure that you bring your mask with you and wear it when you are away from your table.  Once seated at your table, you are free to remove your mask.

 

  • We are no longer taking reservations.  Please be aware that we are now limited to 50% of our indoor capacity, and when it rains, it may be difficult to find a seat.  If you have a group of 8 or more, PLEASE, give us a call ahead of time and we will try to reserve you a table if possible.

 

  • When you arrive, you will need to check-in with a staff member inside the Winery.  They will seat you at a table, which will serve as your designated space during your time with us.  We ask that you do NOT visit with guests at other tables, and refrain from wandering around the property.  If you have children or pets with you, please understand that they will not be allowed to run around the lawn or winery and must remain with you at all times.

 

  • We will be offering a variety of tasting flights, wines by the glass, and bottles of wine to be consumed onsite.  As always, our staff can recork any unfinished bottles so that you may take them with you.  We will not be offering traditional wine tastings.  Club Members, who normally would receive four free tastings per visit, will receive two complimentary flights per visit.

 

  • We are currently unable to offer tours of the Production area inside the Winery.

 

  • We are now selling our prepackaged meats, cheeses, crackers, and baguettes.   As before, you can select these items from our Pantry at your convenience to enjoy at your table.  Plates, knives, cutting boards, etc are located in the Sun Room for your use.

 

  • 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.

 

  • We will still be offering curbside pickups and free ground shipping on orders over $100.

 

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.
