Region: Southern Virginia
The Homeplace Vineyard, located in Southside Virginia's Pittsylvania County, was incorporated in 2004 by Joe and Brenda Williams along with their children Renee and husband Billy, Jesse and wife Penny, and Mary and husband Chris.
The Homeplace farm has been in our family for four generations, and we are proud of our heritage. This farm was originally purchased by Joe's grandparents, Archer L. and Lizzie Yeatts, in 1912.
Traditionally a tobacco farm, we planted our first grapes, Traminette, in March, 2005. We added Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, and Viognier over the next three years respectively. We currently are tending approximately 5,600
vines on just over 9 acres.
