Holli and John Todhunter are passionate about life, love, wine and Italy! After years of study, research and planning Three Fox Vineyards was given birth from this passion back in 2002. Today Three Fox Vineyards sits on 50 rolling acres, very reminiscent of Tuscany or the Piemonte, in the heart of Northern Virginia’s horse country and the Mosby Heritage Area. Their love of Italian wine and food has taken the Todhunters on many trips to various parts of Italy to learn how wines are made in these different regions. The similar relaxed feel of Southern France has taken them there too. This Italian focus – with a bit of the south of France thrown in – led them to plant Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Pinot Grigio – all Italian varietals – as well as Viognier, the main white wine grape of the Rhone Valley. On estate they also grow Cabernet Franc and Merlot, both of which are grown in many parts of Italy and France. Chardonnay, Vidal, and Chambourcin are sourced from areas growers. In a very Italian tradition, all of the wines have “fanciful” names, most in Italian with one good French one (Alouette for the Cabernet Franc) thrown in. The vineyards now cover 10 and a half acres with an additional 2 – 3 planned as the maximum on site. Eventually, a case production goal of 5000 per year is targeted. Read less
