Bronze – 2018 Virginia Governor’s Cup
Cabernet Franc’s History at Hickory Hill
The Cabernet Franc was first bottled at Hickory Hill in 2005 and holds the distinction as the first wine to be added to the original six! The 2005 Cabernet Franc earned a medal and the 2009 vintage earned our first Gold for any wine. While we do not grow Cabernet Franc, these grapes were sourced from Shady Grove Vineyards in Bedford County, VA which is owned and operated by long time friends Melissa Sutters and Phyllis Buckner. We thank them for the vintages they entrusted to our care.
