On March 18th, we celebrate the 297th anniversary of Rosewell. Located in Gloucester County, Virginia, Rosewell estate was built in 1725 by Charles Mann Page and Judith Carter Page, sister of Charles and Landon Carter. At 12,000 sq feet, Rosewell stood as the largest and costliest mansion in the colony. Thomas Jefferson was a frequent and welcome visitor at Rosewell, and it is said that Jefferson wrote a draft of the Declaration of Independence in what is now known as the “Blue Room,” a room situated on the northwest corner of the second floor. In 1916, Rosewell was destroyed by fire, although it remains as beautiful historic ruins today that are open to the visiting public.

In celebration of this important day in American wine culture, we are offering our customers a 30% bottle discount on all bottles of our Rosewell Rose! Maximum two cases per person. Online or in-stores! Shop now!

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.

My blog of my most recent visit to Philip Carter Winery. Loved the changes since last I visited, especially wines from the new winemaker Tony McDonnell and the new outdoor space. If I had to pick a favorite wine it would be the 2019 Cleve, but that 2020 Viognier was a runner up. I couldn't help myself but talk about their family history, because I love both history and wine and this place brings them together. #wine #vawinetogether #vawine http://winetrailsandwanderlust.com/2021/12/10/revisiting-philip-carter-winery/
