Flying Fox Vineyard

Flying Fox Vineyards logoNestled in the heart of Nelson County wine country, Flying Fox Vineyard is a small, family-run winery. We invite you to come by and taste our limited production award wines including Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Viognier. Enjoy our fireplace in the winter months and the gorgeous mountain views from the patio in the summer.

Our vineyard is six and a half acres, planted to red varieties. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc are trained to a Smart-Dyson trellis and the Petit Verdot is on VSP (vertically shoot positioned) trellis. We both love spending time working in the vineyard. It is peaceful, methodical work in a beautiful setting. Watching the vines come back to life in the spring, the trunks a little bigger and more gnarled each year, the rapid growth of the leaf canopy and finally ripening of the grapes and harvest, have come to define our year.
