Located in Virginia, Barboursville Vineyards was established in 1976 by Gianni Zonin, a 7th generation winegrower from Gambellara, Italy whose family has been making wine since 1821. Barboursville Vineyards was one of the first wineries in the state and was also the first to grow vitis vinifera in Virginia. Italian born Luca Paschina is the winemaker and general manager. A graduate of Italy’s Istituto Umberto I, he produces small-lot, handmade wines in the Italian tradition in other words, food-friendly wines, with moderate tannins and solid aging potential. The estate consists of 900 acres, of which 162 are planted to vine on red clay. They grow French and Italian varietals. In short vintages, estate fruit is supplemented with purchased fruit from three growers in Lynchburg, Shenandoah Valley and Orange County, Virginia. Named after Barboursville Mansion, the manor was designed by Thomas Jefferson and was home to Virginia’s Governor Barbour until it was destroyed by fire in the winter of 1885.
