Septenary Winery at Seven Oaks Farm is a magnificent property located just 15 minutes from Charlottesville in Greenwood, VA. The 109-acre estate is a Virginia Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has been owned by a number of families in Albemarle County who figure prominently in local religious, educational and political history.
Perhaps the most intriguing story about Seven Oaks Farm is of the seven white oaks that once stood on the south lawn in front of the manor home. These majestic trees were each named for a Virginia president. In 1954, Hurricane Hazel destroyed all but one of the oaks. Given the estate’s ties to Charlottesville and the University of Virginia, it seems fitting that the lone surviving tree was the one named for Thomas Jefferson. That oak tree stands proudly on the property to this day.
To walk the grounds of Seven Oaks Farm is to be captivated by its natural beauty and its splendid history. “Refining nature’s legacy” is how owners Todd and Sarah Zimmerman describe their vision as stewards of the property. And they invite you to share the experience, whether through a glass of our wine with family or friends, a more formal tasting of the wines, or by joining their family through the Septenary wine club.
