I stopped yesterday at Viniterra, a unique golf community halfway between Richmond and Williamsburg, VA, less than two miles from Interstate 64. It is unique in that a working winery, as well as a sleek Rees Jones golf course, is on property and managed by the developer. My tour included a stop in the wine tasting room, a well appointed, neat-as-a-pin spot at the entrance to the community, whose exterior features reclaimed wood and bricks that pre-date the Civil War. In just its first few years, the winery has picked up awards for its toothsome whites. In the absence of a clubhouse -- construction begins soon -- the tasting room and its porch serves as a splendid 19th hole.
I’ll have more to say in this space soon about Viniterra, its golf properties for sale and it golf course.
Some grape plantings bump up against the Rees Jones golf course at Viniterra.
