Hidden Vineyard Profile
Written by Brian—Mar 4, 2019
As of this writing, Hidden Vineyard has not yet opened to the public, but that will happen soon. The Longenette's and Sherman's purchased the Yadkin Valley property, complete with nine acres of 14-year-old vines, in 2017. Construction of a tasting space is underway and the couple hope to open their doors in the summer of 2020.
Aside from construction of the tasting room, primary emphasis is on cleaning up the property. This includes an old tobacco cabin that will serve as a rental space. For now, Hidden Vineyard will use a local custom crush business to make the wine. Wine production on premises is at least five years away, but estate fruit will be used exclusively and 2017 was the first vintage.
While they get their 32-acre property in order, the Sherman’s are selling their fruit to other local producers. The acreage under vine is currently dedicated to Chambourcin, Chardonnay, Petit Manseng and most of the Bordeaux varietals. Other long-term plans include planting another block of grapes, but it is too early to say what will be planted.
We will keep an eye on Hidden Vineyard and provide some periodic updates. You can also expect an announcement and a revised profile one they open to the public. So stay tuned and get ready to show Hidden Vineyard some love.
