Please join us at Southbound  on Thursday, July 20th at 6pm as we introduce Ben Jordan, head winemaker of Early Mountain Vineyards.

For years, Ben was the head winemaker for Michael Shaps at Wineworks, and got his start making wines in California's Russian River Valley and Sonoma County. His love and passion for wine brought him back to his roots in Virginia where he knew of the potential for great wine production. At Early Mountain Vineyards Ben is making some of the most compelling wines in all of Virginia and would like to share them with you!
