Celebrate Gray Ghost’s 18th Anniversary with wine tastings, vineyard and winery tours. There will be plenty of live music by the Seth Kibel Jazz Trio. There will be a Civil War camp, firing of a replica Civil War cannon, local vendors and a silent barrel auction. Bring a picnic or buy a barbecue lunch.
Gray Ghost, a family owned and operated winery, is placing Virginia on the international wine map by producing internationally acclaimed wines from immaculate vineyards. All grapes are hand-picked and wine is aged in premium oak barrels. Full-bodied reds are unfiltered and lighter-styled wines are fermented at lower temperatures to enhance fruit character. This emphasis on quality resulted in Gray Ghost being named “Best of the East” by Vineyard and Winery Management Magazine four consecutive years!
