Pollak Vineyards was built on the historic Mountain Hollow Farm in 2003, where David and Margo Pollak realized their vision of growing and producing award-winning Virginia wines.
Today we have 34 acres of French vinifera used to make estate grown wine that has the finesse and balance of the traditional French varietals.
Our Winemaker Benoit Pineau was born and raised near Tours in the wine appellation of Jasnières and discovered his passion for viticulture and fermentations by working with his grandfather. He obtained his Enologist degree studying in Bordeaux and Burgundy. Production passionate, he decided to focus his learning on Bordeaux varietals by working in France, Australia and California. Benoit arrived in Virginia at Kluge Estate Winery (Charlottesville, VA) in 2005 and moved to Napa at Cain Vineyards (Saint Helena, CA) in 2006. The Virginia countryside and its potential for growing grapes and producing world-class wine brought him back east in 2008. Since then, he has managed the vineyards and wineries operations for over a decade at Pollak Vineyards (2011-2018, 2020-present).
The tasting room and patio offer views of our first vines, the pond and the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains. It is a scenic setting to enjoy a glass of wine and some of the best of Central Virginia’s wine country.
