When it came time to design our wine label and name our line of wines…we couldn’t resist using the acronym for White Oak Lavender Farm (WOLF) and of course our peaceful wolf had to be purple!

You are welcome to bring in some snacks or we have cheese and crackers available for purchase to enjoy with your wine. Choose from our enclosed, covered deck with heaters or ceiling fans.

From this palette, Rouse is able to produce a full spectrum of wines to match a broad range of individual tastes. His motto is “All Virginia, All the time.”

M&R Vineyard is a family owned and operated vineyard located in Shenandoah County, Virginia. In 2012, JC Mansilla and David Rourke (M&R) purchased the hillside pasture property not only because of its incredible views of the Allegheny Mountains, but also for its limestone based soils, elevation and topography. We began preparing the site for establishing the vineyard by testing the soil composition, laying out, ripping and tilling the rows, and auguring the holes; and in the spring of 2013, the vines were planted. We have worked for local wineries and currently serve on the board of our local wine growers association in order to foster relationships and growth through service. Our vineyard is cared for the best way we know how which helps us to offer distinct, locally cultivated fruit to Virginia wineries.
