Roger and Judy Furrow are the owners and dreamers of Hickory Hill. These photos span 29 years of grape passion, from 1984 until the present.
Judy have two children, Tad and Wendy, that share in their vineyard & winery dream, and three grandchildren.
Wendy, her husband
Donald and their daughter Tura live and work at the farm as second generation
winemaker, vigneron and helper, all under Roger and Judy's watchful
Tad, his wife Rebecca and their sons, Ryan & Nathan, live and work in the Greensboro NC
area, visiting often to help with harvest and festivals.
Our story cannot be
complete without mention of the Harvesters. These 100+ volunteers are extended family and dear
friends that over the decades have helped us pick the grapes, pour tastings at
festivals, bottle wine or simply watch Tura as we work. Without them this dream
would not be possible, and it is a joy to share the success with them.
Roger's mother Alberta has watched her son's vineyard dreams grow for over a quarter century, and she's picked grapes every harvest. Even using a chair now she can still out-pick many new volunteers. Her many paintings of the lake over the years not only hang in the tasting room; she painted the familiar "Lake" label on our wine bottles. Madison Avenue, eat your heart out.
