Welcome to 12 Ridges, a family-owned vineyard tucked in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Formerly known as Skylark Farm, 12 Ridges now offers an intimate Tasting Room, over seven thousand five hundred square feet of outdoor patio space, and glorious 360 degree hilltop views.
The terroir of 12 Ridges is well suited to make high-quality wines and we seek to make exceptional sparkling wines using the Traditional Method originating from the Champagne, France region. Our high altitude at 3,300′, a permeable and stony soil low in clay, cooler temperatures as well as lower humidity, all combine to give 12 Ridges an extraordinary opportunity for our chosen varietals to thrive. Our sparkling wines are complemented by other chardonnay, riesling, pinot gris, and pinot noir wines.
David Kulund is a singer-songwriter living in Charlottesville, Virginia. David sang and played guitar in popular bands in New York City and Boston. He performs solo shows and also teams with multi-instrumentalist Matty Metcalfe to play a rocking blend of harmonized originals and covers.
Matty Metcalfe is an accomplished and versatile musician and ethnomusicologist who is equally at home in the studio and performance venues as he is in the classroom. His mastery of many different instruments, from piano and accordion to banjo and guitar, coupled with his ability to seamlessly move between and within musical styles keeps him busy as both a session and touring musician.
We will also have 12 Ridges Vineyard staple Chef Troy serving avant-garde and authentic cooking that brings people together.
Chef Troy 11-5 pm
David & Matty 1-4 pm
