Elk Island Winery

Region: Central Virginia

Elk Island Winery is named for the 1300 acre island in the James River, originally part of Thomas Jefferson’s Elk Hill farm, adjacent to our farm. Our passion for rural life, agriculture and our love of wine resulted in the planting of our 4 acre vineyard and Elk Island winery. Our farm, Lower Byrd Farm, is situated at the confluence of Byrd Creek and the James River and grows row crop grains. Our vineyard is planted in Norton, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc and small plantings of many white vinifera.
