Meet the Baki's
The Baki family bought the property in 2001 with the hopes of creating a vineyard and winery with the help of their son, Kerem, who at the time was studying Enology in the Graduate program at Virginia Tech. The family began their dream with Bora and Kerem planting each vine by hand in 2003 afterwhich, Kerem served his first wines out of tasting room that same year. Kerem's brother Tolga, assisted in the development and marketing of the vineyard and later turned his own brewmaster skills into reality by adding amazing craft beers to our tasting room line-up. 'Momma Baki' Zeynep is our resident artist and established the beautiful aesthetics you see today in the tasting room and gardens. Kerem's wife, Asli, manages our club, tasting room, and marketing.
