The storied land that Saudé Creek Vineyards calls home in New Kent County once hosted George Washington and French General Rochambeau and sits just seven miles away from the birthplace of our nation’s inaugural First Lady, Martha Dandridge Custis. What started as a small cider business named Saudé Creek Farms was renamed Saudé Creek Vineyards and opened its doors in 2011.
The vineyards located on a knoll adjacent to the Pamunkey River benefit from the mild climate and mineral-rich soil. Grape varietals Vidal Blanc, Traminette, Viognier, Petit Verdot, Petit Menseng and Chambourcin enjoy the steep terrain that allows for excellent drainage and benefit from the cooling effect of the water. Savor a sip of the Pamunkey Fall or discover a wine slushie while taking in the lush and marvelous view from the upstairs balcony.
