Margo and David Pollak founded Pollak Vineyards in 2003 when they purchased an organic farm just west of Charlottesville, Virginia. After a long partnership in a Napa winery and a career in international business, David Pollak found himself back in the wine business. In Virginia the Pollaks discovered that great wines could be produced from well-sited and meticulously maintained vineyards. With this vision in mind, the Pollaks assembled a team of experienced individuals—including Nick Dovel and Benoit Pineau, winemaker. Together they have planted 31 acres of French vinifera vines on their 100-acre farm in Greenwood and produce 4000 cases of award winning wines. Wines include Chardonnay, Viognier, Pinot Gris, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot a Meritage Bordeaux blend, and a dessert wine based on Petit Manseng. All wines are exclusively made from grapes grown on the estate.
