Vault Field Vineyards: Vault Field Vineyards is located on historic Vault Field Farm near the town of Kinsale, in the heart of Virginia’s Northern Neck. Our award winning wines are the result of a marriage between an exceptional terroir and the latest techniques in viticulture. We, at Vault Field, believe fine wines are made in the vineyard. The care of the vines is yearlong, starting with hand pruning during winter months. Next comes hand weeding and continued pruning during the growing season. Finally, in late fall, when the grapes ripen, we hand pick and sort the individual grapes to produce high quality, premium wines. We hope you enjoy the fruits of our labor with family and friends
