And now for the finale of how we got started:
The winery was visited in 2012 by then Virginia Secretary of Agriculture Todd Haymore – a fan of Lovingston wines. We talked about the time required to develop a wine brand, the challenges of getting on a shelf or wine list, and financing the project. We explained that a winery owner needed a good job or generous relative to withstand the costs of vineyard development and winery construction. Having no relative able to be that generous, we talked about how APG—Garland had grown—and our need to expand in Texas. Mr. Haymore suggested that we consider Virginia for our expansion, and that we would be hearing from the Governor’s office. The next day, we did.
We spent the better part of a year looking for the right spot and designing the process. Locating in Chesapeake, VA put us within a 20 minute drive of the Ports of Virginia. Considering that much of our raw materials are imported, and a substantial portion of our clientele are export accounts made the decision easy for us. APG of Chesapeake was commissioned in 2014 and is now fully operational.
Please contact us if we can be of service to you and your company’s needs. And as always, feel free to buy some wine!
