HOW THEY GOT STARTED

Abingdon Vineyard and Winery is a small Virginia Farm Winery located in Abingdon on the far southwest side of Virginia near the Tri-Cities of Bristol, Johnson City and Kingsport, TN.

They acquired 53 acres of land in this beautiful area and thought we would do something to keep us healthy, active and creating something.

They began planning their 10 acre vineyard in 1997; planted their first 500 plants in 1998 and completed their 6000 plants by 2001.

Their main grape varieties are: Cabernet Franc, Riesling, Chardonel, Traminette, Pinot Noir, Norton, Chambourcin, Viognier. Their first fermentation began with our year 2000 harvest.
