We are minimalistic in our winemaking. We depend on growing beautiful, healthy fruit, and then we work hard in the winery to limit the amount of intervention we impose. Our wines lean more fruit forward and friendly for food pairings. Nothing stays in the barrel for more than a year, as our goal is to keep them approachable and drinkable when they are young.
The history of Blenheim Farm dates back to 1730, when John Carter, Secretary of the Colony of Virginia and eldest son of Robert "King" Carter, obtained a patent for 9,350 acres northeast of present-day Carter's Bridge in what is now Albemarle County. Blenheim's period of significance spans the 18th and 19th centuries. The property's archaeological-historical, agricultural, and political/governmental associations are key points of relevance. The resource was nominated to the Virginia Landmarks Register on December 16, 1975, and to the National Register of Historic Places on May 17, 1976.
