Ingleside is proud to be one of the pioneers of the modern wine industry in Virginia. We were the first winery in Virginia to produce a mèthode champenoise sparkling wine, beginning with our 1980 vintage. One of the first wineries in Virginia to bottle a varietal Petit Verdot, now one of their flagship wines and a winner of "Best Petit Verdot" at the 2012 San Francisco International Wine Competition, they continue to explore unique grape varieties in Virginia, finding success in recent years with several Italian and Spanish grape varietals, including Albarino, Pinot Grigio and Sangiovese. Their 2014 Albarino won "Best White Wine in Show" at the 2015 New York World Wine & Spirits Competition.

When Prince Michel Vineyard and Winery was founded in 1982 by Parisians Jean and Sylvian LeDucq, a vision was formed out of the love of Virginia and its relationship to the vine. Prince Michel has grown to become one of the largest, most widely distributed and recognized wineries in the state as well as along the east coast. Our wines have won competitions around the world and flourished with the efforts of our founders, the LeDucq's, owner Kristin Easter, employees, and loyal customers.
Although Prince Michel has "Old World" beginnings with original French ownership, there is nothing conventional about the winery or its wines. The Prince Michel story is one of perseverance and innovation in a sometimes too stodgy environment. Prince Michel's basic approach is that "wines should be enjoyed and the best wine is what you like." Much of this fresh approach to wine comes from the present owner of Prince Michel, Kristin Easter. Only one of a hand-full of female winery owners, Kristin's business model is centered around hospitality and the pleasure of a great wine experience. Her creative business style has challenged the traditional philosophy of how to experience wine.
The diversity of wines produced by Prince Michel and Rapidan River allows a level of choice most wineries cannot achieve on such a large scale. Wines range from high-end "craft" wines like Viognier, Syrah, and Symbius grown from select Virginia vineyards to more unique wines from the Rapidan River series like the Semi-dry Riesling, Peach, and Chocolate.
