Founded by a group of wine enthusiasts in 2005, the property now boasts eight acres of planted vines and a fully renovated manor house dating back to 1790, now used as their Tasting Room. The vineyard is located just 40 miles south west of Washington D.C. in Haymarket, Virginia. It sits at an elevation of about 600 feet, right at the base of the Bull Run Mountain foothills.
The house and property are rich with history and folklore. Many visitors share their stories of experiences with the ghosts that live here. Most of the encounters entail the piano in the parlor playing on its own, the ghost of a young girl who inhabits one of the upstairs rooms as well as the spirit of Benoni who guided the homes restoration project in the 1800’s. Benoni E. Harrison purchased the La Grange estate in 1837 and lived here until he died in 1869.
