Loving Cup First Organic Winery in VA

Posted: Updated: Apr 04, 2014 05:33 PM

An organic vineyard has set up shop in Albemarle County. Loving Cup Vineyard & Winery in North Garden is a first of its kind in the state.

Owners Karl and Deena Hambsch wanted to grow grapes and develop their wine in the most natural way possible. The vines are on their fifth year of growth, and the winery produced its first vintage last year.

“We focus more on the health of the soil, the health of the ecological system. We try not to damage all the natural predators that are out there, that are actually helping maintain this very healthy balance for the system,” said Karl Hambsch.

The land is certified organic, and the owners are currently working to have the production facility certified organic too.

Tastings are Friday through Sunday.  For more information, click here.
