Old times and new vines at Chatham Vineyards

Tucked away off one of the inlets of the Chesapeake Bay, Chatham Vineyards helms one of the newest AVAs (American Viticulture Area) on Virginia's Eastern Shore. You'll be greeted by a grand federalist style home that was originally built in 1818 ( and served as a medical facility during the Civil War); the land here has been farmed since the 1600’s making it one of the oldest continuously run farms in the United States. The land’s current owners John Wehner, a second generation wine-grower, and his wife Mills started Chatham Vineyard in 1999.The high-density, European-style vineyards feature Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grapes that are used to make the Estate’s signature wines. Be sure to get a bottle of Chatham's steel fermented Church Creek Chardonnay, it pairs perfectly with the area's oysters and seafood.
