Winemaking Philosophy:
Keswick Vineyards specializes in producing small lots of high quality Virginia wines and a minimalist approach is taken in the winery while focusing attention on the vineyards to produce the best possible fruit. Most of the wines are fermented using natural or native yeast and all of the current red wines are bottled un-fined and un-filtered. While approachable when young, most of the wines produced at Keswick Vineyards will see 5-10 years quite easily in the bottle, reflecting the personal tastes of the owners and winemaker.
