Location

Five Oaks brings several wonderful things together.  First is the location and its fabulous beauty.  Blue Ridge Mountains, Southwest Mountains, rolling hills, and luscious vineyards set the stage.  Next is the wine.  The wine presents itself as easy to drink, little or no after-taste, smooth, and reasonably priced.  As a testament to the quality, no one wine out-sells another.

Our Phased Approach

This project started in a four-phase mode. The first phase was to grow grapes and demonstrate that it can be done economically.  The second phase was to grow quality fruit that would produce quality wine. This was accomplished by the second year (2011) harvest of 2.1 tons, which produced some very good wine that has been very well received. This phase continues today.  The third phase is to convert or add to the barn the capability of cold storage of both bottled wine, bulk wine storage for bottling on the premises [Working], and the modification of the barn to include a small tasting room. Phase four will include the purchase and installation of tanks for wine processing.  Phase four is in the future.
