2016 and springtime rainbows overlooking the lush green landscape and the vineyards at Gauthier Vineyard. The tasting room’s beautiful wrap around porches with a view of the pond and the grounds are the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy an afternoon with friends & family.
I recently found other photos from visits to Gauthier Vineyard from a visit during the winter months. As you can see the “view” overlooking the pond with the tasting rooms wrap around porch on a beautiful winter day can be just as breath taking.
This quaint family owned vineyard in New Kent County also includes a working horse farm and equestrian center next door. There is great history on this property, too. From their website: “Mo and Sandi Gauthier purchased their “Fair Winds” farm in 2010. Like most ground in the county, the farm is rich in history. Local relic hunters have validated its service as a Civil War encampment for both Union and Confederate forces during the lengthy Peninsula Campaign.”
Another stunning photo I found was on a cold fall day. I love sitting outside on the porch just enjoying the solitude, the peace and serenity with a glass of wine and just capture the beauty our region has being blessed with “family owned” wineries like Gauthier Vineyard. It is great as you can actually meet the “owners” and learn more about their passion for starting their own vineyards/wineries.
Make a day trip to New Kent County just 6 miles off I-64 and sample the Viognier Viognier and the Brick House Red which are two of my favorite wines! http://www.gauthiervineyard.com/
