Caret Cellars is a family-owned and operated Virginia Farm Winery, and the only winery on the Middle Peninsula.
Caret Cellars is a Virginia Farm winery and the only winery in Essex County and the Middle Peninsula. We are family-owned and operated and grow six different wine grape varietals on approximately six and one half acres. These grapes include Chardonnay, Merlot, Sangiovese and Viognier. New this year are Chambourcin and Niagara, the main ingredients to our popular sweet red wine, Rivah Red.
We make from 7 to 13 different wines at any one time, most of which are grown in our vineyard, making them “Estate Wines”. We also make small batch wines from grapes obtained form several small vineyards we work with, including Traminette and Pinot Grigio.
