Oakencroft Winery spent 25 years churning out well-received wines as one of the pioneers of winemaking in Central Virginia. From 1982 until 2008, when the property sold, Philip Ponton planted, pruned, harvested and fermented grapes from 14 acres of vines on the Garth Road property.

When the winery was purchased in 2009 by John and Amy Griffin, University of Virginia alums who live and work in New York City, that all changed. First, eight acres of old vines were uprooted.
