Just down the road and nestled in the historic Virginia countryside between Richmond and Williamsburg, New Kent Winery is a beautiful escape from the stress of daily life. An environmentally sensitive winery in a perfectly beautiful setting, it was modeled to reflect an earlier time. The winery was built by craftsmen of historic materials reclaimed from buildings and structures well over a century old. Beautiful heart-pine trusses came from a 1901 Southern Railroad Depot located in Richmond’s Shockoe Bottom. Heart pine structural timbers and floor timbers were recovered from a Connecticut warehouse circa 1852. The stunning exterior facade boasts handmade, antebellum bricks. Siding and roof shingles were milled from cypress logs that had been submerged in Florida rivers for more than 150 years.
New Kent’s 17,000-square-foot winery is equipped with state-of-the-art winemaking equipment from around the world. The vineyards adjacent to the winery were planted in 2001 and currently there are more than 20 acres under cultivation featuring Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay, Vidal, Norton, and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals. The great blending of golf and wine doesn’t get any better than in New Kent, Va. NewkentWinery.com/
