Loving Cup Vineyard & Winery
With its vineyard USDA Organic-certified in 2012, Loving Cup eschews the planting of Vitis vinifera grape varietals for their susceptibility to disease, instead growing hybrid varieties with traits selected to promote the health and immunity of the plant species. After suffering catastrophic wind damage in 2015, the Tasting Room closed to visitors pending its planned re-opening in April 2016. Loving Cup’s wines are available for sale through their website and at various whole foods-promoting retailers throughout central Virginia. Currently seeking organic certification for the winery as well, owner Karl Hambsch hopes to be able to label his 2016 wines as “Made with Organic Grapes.”
