Philip Carter Fall Festival

This is a little late, but I just came across a few photos from a festival a wine client of mine held this fall and the place is so nice, I had to post.  The winery is Philip Carter Winery, in Markham, Virginia, in a bit of a hollow on the east side of the Blue Ridge Mountains...beautiful piedmont country.

Philip Carter is a direct descendant of Robert "King" Carter, an impressive, colonial Virginia landholder.  Philip's ancestors at Cleve Hall, an old family property, were the first to create quality wines in Virginia.  Their wines won a gold medal from the London Society for the Encouragement of the Arts in 1762...the first recognized fine wines in America.

You can check out his winery at

Some of these views are from the winery cuploa...worth a trip to the winery just to take in the landscape!
