Michael Shaps/Virginia Wineworks

Michael Shaps/Virginia Wineworks

Winner of the Virginia Governor’s Cup in 2004 and referenced in wine industry publications such as Saveur, Wine Spectator and others, Michael Shaps has been making wine in central Virginia since 2004 and produces under his nationally recognized, ultra-premium, small lot-focused Michael Shaps label as well as the craft-pioneering, value-oriented Wineworks label. Michael’s whites can be characterized by their varietal intensity and retention of natural acidity, whereas his reds are highly extracted and crafted to be age-worthy, requiring cellaring. Also a partner in Maison Shaps Winery in Meursault, France, Michael and winemaker Jake Busching aim to produce wines that stand up to the finest selections from some of the best growing regions around the world.
