Where We Get Our Grapes
Great wines can only come from great fruit. To grow this fruit we currently own two properties: The estate vineyard at the Grove Winery in Guilford County and Vista Ridge Vineyards. We also work with and source grapes from some of the leading local viticulturalists (fancy word for grape farmers) at places like Lenox Castle, B&S Vineyards and Storrs Vineyards.

Our estate vineyards are located across the road from the winery. The 44 acre farm is located in the Haw River Valley at an elevation of ~730 feet on a sloping, mineral rich piece of land on the banks of the Haw River. Eight acres are currently planted with varieties that thrive in the Piedmont region's long growing season like Cabernet, Merlot, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Chardonnay, Traminette and Tempranillo. Grapes are planted in 609 foot rows, 8 feet apart using the VSP trellis system. More than 80% of Grove Winery's grapes come from this vineyard which is dedicated to producing the best wine grown in the state of North Carolina.

Our first farm was initially planted in 1993. This 30 acre property overlooks Smith Mountain and is located near Altavista, Virginia. Two acres are currently planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Norton, from which we get some of the grapes for our award winning Norton. The 37 degree latitude is comparable to Sonoma. This excellent vineyard site at an elevation of 775 feet offers lots of sun, constant breeze for drying out foliage, nights cooled by the lakes of the Roanoke (Staunton) River and less rain than surrounding areas.

Tom and Susan Storrs hand harvest Malbec, Carménère and Viognier for Grove at his vineyard in Caswell County located 12 miles due north of Grove. He also grows Cabernet Franc. Grove Malbec grown at this vineyard won gold medals for the 2009, 2010 and 2011 vintages. Click here for more info on our Malbec.

B&S Vineyards in Mayodan, North Carolina B&S Vineyards
We get our award winning Niagara grapes from B&S Vineyards in Mayodan, NC. Bryce & Sara Richardson planted these Niagara vines in April 2003 on top of Mayodan Mountain on land that was originally Bryce's Grandfather's farm. They have 509 vines that are on a Modified Renewal Four Arm Kniffen system. Sara has taken viticulture classes at Surry Community College and Bryce at Rockingham Community College.

Lenox Castle Vineyards
Lenox Castle Vineyards is owned and farmed by Larry and Mary Lynn Somers and is one of the oldest vinifera vineyards in the state, first planted in 1991. The vineyard is located in Rockingham County less than five miles due north of Grove at the northwestern edge of the Haw River Valley AVA. The best Syrah in the state comes from this vineyard. We also source our Lenox Castle red blend from here. For more information on our Syrah, click here.
