Description 1 of 1

Lovingston Winery, located in the rolling countryside of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is dedicated to the production of the highest-quality wines. Primarily family-run along with head winemaker Riaan Rossouw, we take great pride in offering a pleasing experience in every bottle. Currently, we have six acres of densely-planted vines – four in Merlot, one in Cabernet Franc and one in Pinotage. MerlotThis “dense planting” – 1200 vines to the acre – stems from the idea that by limiting the number of grape bunches a vine is able to produce, that vine concentrates all of its energy into fewer bunches, increasing the quality of those grapes. We plan to expand our vineyards in 2010 with Seyval Blanc and small quantities of both Chardonnay and Petit Verdot. The winery, built into a hillside on the family farm, employs a gravity-flow production method, allowing us to virtually eliminate the use of pumps and other mechanization we believe detracts from the wines. In addition, we ferment the grapes in relatively small quantities to allow for a more hands-on approach to winemaking and increased quality control. Please feel free to call for a tour and tasting at the winery or for more information. We hope you enjoy what Lovingston has to offer. – Description from AlexJelena
