Cobbler Mountain Cellars Big Cobbler Mountain Delaplane, VA Jeff and Laura have restored the 90-acre property once purchased in 1959 by Laura's father for $100 an acre. Here is what led them here....
Lawrence Daniel McCarthy was a writer for the Associated Press after serving in the U.S. Coastguard. Living on a houseboat in the harbor, he was longing to have land around him and teach in the countryside. He found the farm... which reminded him of his County Cork, Ireland heritage... made a handshake deal with the gentleman farmer and got a teaching job in Marshall at the brick school (now the library). He became known as an activist for students with special needs. In 1967, he was asked to direct a facility in South Carolina. The job took Laura's parents away from the farm with plans to be back in three years. Once there, he was immediately driven to write a grant over the first year, seeking $1M funding from the government to build a state-of the art facility. After sending the proposal off, he did not sit still. One evening he and several recruited community members integrated the two schools, in preparation for all receive the benefits ahead. It was the peak of riot season, in the deep South, with a outgoing lad leading everyone. He was on a mission...which was cut short. One morning, Mr. McCarthy fell ill at school. He died that day of cardiac arrest at only 42. Over breakfast, he had told Laura's mother that he still felt, " He hadn't done enough". Little did he know... She got the news shortly after that the one million dollar grant HAD been awarded for the new facility. She also got news that Laura was on the way.
Mrs. McCarthy saw through the groundbreaking and then moved to the state's capital of Columbia to graduate school, all while taking care of her infant daughter and older toddler daughter. She raised the girls on her own, all while holding on to the land in Virginia to one day pass along to them. For forty years, she covered the taxes and checked on the farm during summer visits to see the Irish clan in the Metropolitan areas. Laura became attached to the beautiful mountain, the pastures, the four seasons and the wildlife. It was a dreamy notion to live here one day.
Laura met Jeff, a Cleveland, OH, native while he was serving in the Navy in SC. When they were first married, he created batches of handcrafted wines and ciders....while eventually took over the entire house, the garage, the basement, the pantry, the kitchen constantly....until she suggested he see the land where the could create a lifestyle and he would have MUCH MORE ROOM!
