Since 2000, Veramar Vineyard has produced some of the best wine in Virginia. Our winemaker, Justin Bogaty, received a certificate in oenology from UC Davis, and has since received 61 ratings of 85 points or higher from Wine Enthusiast Magazine, as well as numerous medals at Decanter World Wine Awards, the most prestigious wine competition anywhere in the world.
Veramar Vineyard, the Bogaty family’s first winery, opened to the public in 2000, and Justin Bogaty came on as winemaker the next year. From the earliest days of the business, each decision and each project has been done with the goal of creating a sustainable family business that can be passed down from generation to generation. The family believe strongly in investing in the future of their family’s passion and avoiding trends and fads that can distract from their mission of creating world-class, enduring wines.
Currently, the Veramar estate has 24 acres under vine, mostly on eastern-facing slopes at about 150 meters above sea level and about one mile from the Shenandoah River.
