We have been making wine as a hobby for over 5 years with a dream of opening a winery and vineyard business of our own. Meredith began making this dream a reality by starting in the Viticulture & Enology program at Grayson College about 2 years ago and is planning to graduate with a degree and two certifications in winemaking and grape growing in the fall of 2013. Our hope is to secure licensing and begin the process of opening our winery over the next year.To visit Firelight Vineyards on your trip to Valley View, use our Valley View trip itinerary site.
Our first vines were planted in March 2012 and are budding beautifully in their second season. They will produce their first usable fruit in the summer of 2014. These vines are called Lenoir, which are well known for making an excellent “Port” style wine. Our next plantings will begin with Merlot, Tempranillo, and Viognier. In the future we hope to plant many other Vitis Vinifera varieties and a few up-and-coming French American Hybrids.

I have been here 2 times in 2 months. One time with my sister and today with my husband. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Food is good, but not fufu. The Italian nachos were excellent. We had cheese a meat tray last time. We are into sweet wines. There are 3 sweet wines and 2 semi sweet. The rest are more bitter wines, although that is what most people like.
I was initially excited about this winery, and attempted to join their wine club. Interesting, the online form allows one to type in all of the necessary info except for the first line where the actual name is supposed to be typed. I emailed them and indicated that their online form does not allow for my name to be typed, and asked for some direction. After two months of no response, I just decided to give up. It's always amazing to me that certain businesses never check emails. This boutique winery lost an opportunity for my business and a new member!
