North Gate Vineyard Supports Numerous Causes Including Greyhound Rescue

North Gate Vineyard in Northern Virginia

North Gate Vineyard in Northern Virginia

Earlier this week we visited North Gate Vineyard in Purcellville, Virginia. North Gate is one of only two Virginia wineries with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification. North Gate Vineyards is one of the many must- visit wineries in Virginia.

The winery is located in the Middleburg American Viticulture Area (AVA.) The emphasis for the owners, Mark and Vicki Fedor, is on producing quality wines, using green initiatives and helping philanthropic groups. Mark and Vicki support numerous groups including: music groups, health associations, animal organizations and many more. During our visit to North Gate Vineyard, we discovered that a portion of every bottle of NV Apple Wine is donated to the Blue Ridge Greyhound Adoption (BRGA.) The owners are particularly fond of greyhounds and showed us a lovely painting featuring these special dogs.

The idea for North Gate Vineyard was to plant a vineyard and sell the grapes. Eventually Mark and Vicki decided to see if they could make wine at home. Using apples from their own property, they made an apple wine and declared it a good wine. Eventually they extended winemaking to wine grapes and today have created some delicious traditional wines.

They are also producing a NV Apple Wine that is similar to their first apple wine although it is now made with local apple varieties.

Check out the North Gate Vineyard website for more detailed information. An article with photos will be posted later this week on the Wine Trail Traveler website under winery reviews.

Cheers! Kathy
