Hello Wine Lovers!
Every year, we are pleased to show our appreciation to all the diligent people in the industry who work in the vineyards, wineries and cellars across the state and continue to amaze the world with Virginia wines. This October, we are proudly bringing you the wines of the distinguished Michael Shaps Wineworks.
Educated in oenology and viticulture in Burgundy, France, Michael Shaps decided to take his skills and expertise to Virginia to act as head winemaker at Jefferson Vineyards. After 6 successful vintages, he decided to venture out on his own and began producing wine under the now highly regarded “Michael Shaps” label and is now one of the most recognized winemakers in the state.
We are delighted to have Michael Shaps join us for this event to share his story, expertise and award winning wines with you. We hope you’ll join us this October as we tip our hats to Virginia wine making and taste some of the finest Virginia has to offer!
