RoanokepointI heard over the weekend that Schneider Vineyard’s recently sold their Roanoke Point vineyard, which is predominantly planted with cabernet franc.

I don’t have a ton of details, but I was sorry to hear that the buyers have no desire to keep the property planted under vines. Instead they are going to have an equestrian farm and house there instead.

Sad to see any vineyard plantings go, but at least Roanoke Point won’t be replaced by condos.
