Glen Manor Vineyards is located in Virginia approximately 70 miles west of Washington D.C., situated on a western flank of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The surrounding mountains, ranging between 1400 and 3400 feet in elevation, form a Glen which gives the vineyards a unique environment: A world of its own. The vines grow high on very steep mountain slopes characterized by deep, well-draining, and rocky soils. Learn more about our vineyard →
Our ancestors arrived in this area in 1787, when what is now our estate (along with the approximately 14,000 surrounding acres which were then known as Gooney Manor Leeds) was included in the vast 5 million acre land grant owned by Lord Fairfax of England. In 1812, Lord Fairfax’s heirs sold Gooney Manor Leeds to James and Chief Justice John Marshall. The Marshall family sold about 8,000 acres to William Woodward in 1837 and in 1901 our great-grandfather purchased a small part of the Woodward tract. Learn more about our estate’s history →
Steeped in our history, both of our family and of this mountainside, Glen Manor Vineyards produces wines with a sense of place: the soils, the seasons, and the people who make these wines happen.
Today, the estate comprises 212 acres of pastures, forests, and currently 17 acres of vineyards. It is surrounded by neighboring farms and mountain forests, and we share a common border with Shenandoah National Park to the east. Our farm is recognized by the Commonwealth of Virginia as a Century Farm for being owned and farmed by five generations of our family for over 100 years.
