Our 14,000 day growing season


Silvana and Gianni Zonin at Barboursville

Fourteen thousand six hundred days and as many nights, to be more accurate, which only two people can recall, growing this estate of wine since its founding on April 13th in 1976, Thomas Jefferson's birthday. Two people, responsible every minute for forty years, furnishing the vision, resourcefulness, and stamina to raise the estate from before its first vines were in the ground. Keeping in perspective, the ups and downs of the elements, the markets, the fashions, always growing the place, its produce, and the lives of those who participate. On this 40th anniversary of their possession of this trust, no one can measure their gift. It is growing.
