Our Mission

Located in Mt. Airy, North Carolina, we established FarPointe Vineyards in 2021. We produce high quality wine grapes from the best that nature provides: Sun, Water, and rich Soil.  We use no chemicals and implement regenerative, sustainable farming practices.  We believe in protecting the Earth for future generations, paying a living wage for services we receive, and making a profit to sustain our operations.

Our Story

Like many of us, we too faced the challenges that Covid-19 brought our society.  Trapped in our homes with limited outdoors access, we yearned for open space.  Looking westward toward the NC mountains, we fell in love with and returned to the NC foothills.

We started FarPointe Vineyards (a name familiar to Sci-Fi fans) in December 2021 to develop high quality grapes for fine wines.  Our first year, 2022, was dedicated to clearing the land and developing the proper terroir for our vineyard. In 2023, we planted our first vines - Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot (an acre of each). We plan to plant an acre of Chenin Blanc.  We will nurture our vines for several years before their first crop.  Follow us on our journey.

Types of Wine Grapes Grown at FarPointe Vineyards

Our first crop of wine grapes will include these varieties:

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most planted and well-known wine grape in the world.  In the 18th century, it was known in Bordeaux as Petite Vidure.  It is probably a cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc.  When the great grapes wine estate of the Medoc were planted in the 18th century by members of Bordeaux's roblesse de la robe, Cabernet Sauvignon was established enough to form a major part of the blend for red Bordeaux.  It smells like blackcurrant and tastes of black cherry and plum.

Classic food combinations with Cabernet Sauvignon include cru classe Pauillac  with roast, milk-fed lamb, roasted turkey or goose, and grilled meats.
