As Frank. Jr., began all the preparations,– soil tests, soil amendment, choosing and ordering plants (which must be done one year in advance of planting), locating supplies for end posts, trellising poles, trellising wire, etc., etc., etc.,– other area farmers would stop by his store (S & H Farm Supply, which he and Alex Shugart opened in 1992)  to ask if he was “really going to plant a vineyard?” Without hesitation, Frank, Jr., would tell them, “yes”, and then share what he had learned that convinced him to become involved in this new venture.

After almost a year’s advance preparation, the first vines, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon were planted in April of 2000.  Almost immediately, the vineyard became a local “tourist attraction”,  with farmers and other interested people coming by almost daily to see how the vines were doing.  In fact, gravel had to be added to a pull-out point twice to accommodate the traffic!

Many were intrigued by the idea, but were concerned about learning a new business and the investment required.  Transitioning from tobacco to grapes is not such a stretch agriculturally as one might think, and now other local farmers will begin planting this spring.  Profit per acre from tobacco and grapes is similar.  Profit per acre from grapes made into wine is significantly higher.  So Frank, Jr., and Lenna’s decision to build a winery is a good fit for them.  Frank, Jr., is the quintessential farmer, Lenna is a marketing professional, and both are very comfortable in their respective roles.
