From Raising Cattle To Raising Grapes: Vincent’s Vineyard


Vincent’s Vineyard: open Mon-Sat (11am-6pm).

Vincent’s Vineyard is on the 6 generation family farm located in Russell County. Before conception of the 3 acre vineyard, the Gilmer’s went from raising cattle, producing wheat and corn, and milling on Big Cedar Creek, to growing tobacco and raising sheep.

From tobacco growers to vintners, they planted the first vines in 2001; Traminette and Cabernet Franc. Later, they planted Steuben, Chambourcin, Chardonel, Chardonnay and a few Concord for those jelly and juice lovers. Over the years, Vincent’s Vineyard harvested quality grapes which were sold to friendly local vintners at Abingdon Vineyard and Winery, Mountainrose Vineyards, and Dye’s Vineyards.
