Jay and Maggie Wilderotter fell in love with the Shenandoah Valley when they began their search for “grape land”. In 1990, they were lucky to find and procure 40 luscious acres of land in the Shenandoah Valley, and Jay started to fulfill his dream of becoming a premier wine grape grower. With the help of UC Davis courses in viticulture and enology, Jay learned the skills needed to produce excellent quality wine grapes. Soon after Jay bought a little piece of paradise, he planted Zinfandel, Syrah, Barbera and Viognier grapes, combining the latest growing techniques with “TLC” to produce consistent, high quality grapes for excellent wines.

After 6 years of selling grapes to local wineries and tasting the magnificent finished product, the time came for Wilderotter Vineyard to become Wilderotter Vineyard and Winery. Working with consultants, Jay started slow and fermented only 3 barrels each of Zinfandel and Syrah from the 2001 harvest. In the summer of 2003, the first vintage was in-bottle and quickly sold out.

Wilderotter now boasts 80 acres which include Zinfandel, Syrah, Tempranillo, Barbera, Viognier, Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, our signature Sauvignon Blanc, two beautiful blends, Ambrosia (Grenache and Tempranillo) and a classic Rhone blend - GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre), and three types of olive trees. We currently produce 5000 cases annually, plus approximately 30 gallons of high-grade finishing olive oil. We also procure premium fruit to produce limited releases of Russian River Chardonnay and Napa Cabernet Sauvignon and Amador Primitivo.

Our beautifully constructed tasting room and on-site luxury Grand Reserve Inn, limited distribution to high-end retail and restaurants, and an ever-increasing Wine Club have reinforced my decision to continue to make a world-class product. We are excited about sharing our wines with old and new friends, and look forward enjoying them with you!
