Adopt-A-Vine Program with
We are happy to announce that we are now offering our Adopt-A-Vine program, for a new planting that will be happening this Spring! We are planting an acre of Petit Manseng in our A Block, where our Pinot Gris used to reside. and we will once again offer our “Adopt-A-Vine” program. This is the last block of grapes we are planning to plant for a while, so if you’ve ever been interested in participating in this program – now is your chance!
Petit Manseng is a French varietal known for its high sugar and high acid content, and we’ve been sourcing some for the past few years from other Virginia vineyards to blend into our Block A wine. It’s a rising star in the Virginia viticulture scene and we are excited to see how it grows here at Rosemont!
This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in learning more about what goes into making 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!
