Our History is Wine.® There are few places that can boast the depth of Virginia wine history that Philip Carter Winery reflects. The family carries a two hundred and fifty year legacy as maker of the first recognized fine wine in America. It was Charles Carter, who, in 1762, sent the London Society for the Encouragement of the Arts a dozen bottles of his Virginia wine. The society awarded Carter a gold medal as the first person to make a "spirited attempt towards the accomplishment of their views, respecting wine in America." Located in Hume, Philip Carter Winery is seated on 27 acres of rolling hills in the heart of Virginia's Wine Country.

A Family Legacy Spanning Three Centuries

For three centuries, our family has made our way of life in the rolling landscapes of Fauquier County, Virginia. We have proudly served as stewards of the Virginia Piedmont, a unique and special place enriched with cultural significance of sweeping historical importance. We invite you and your families to share these pastoral meadows, primordial forests, and gentle slopes lined with lush vineyards that we have called home for generations.

Virginians have long identified themselves with the vine, have recognized its importance, and have consistently promoted a viable wine industry. As Virginians, grape and wine production is part of our collective cultural identity and heritage dating back as early as 1619 with the adoption of the Twelfth Act of the Original Acts of the Virginia General Assembly that required every landowner to plant and maintain ten vines.

Today, what was once a dream of a few Founding Fathers has now become a reality for all to share and enjoy. At Philip Carter, we proudly carry an historic family legacy as producers of the first internationally recognized fine wines in America on October 20, 1762. Our history is wine, and our future is to promote the gracious way of life through wine, art and culture.

Founding Family of American Wine™

Meet Amber, 32, single w/ no kids - HR professional background. Amber is kindhearted, curious, adventurous, free spirit with a unique sense of humor and looking for someone she can connect with on a deeper level with the potential for it to develop into something long-term.

Meet Joshua, 34, single w/no kids- Aspiring chef and security guard. When asked to describe his personality he said: he’s fun, outgoing and willing to try anything new. In five years, he see’s himself owning his own restaurant or catering business or being a professional bowler and looking for something serious and long-term.

These two really had fun and enjoyed each others company on set. Both were very photogenic and came with great positive energy ✨
