The Gardners moved from California to Virginia in the summer of 2018 to build the legacy of Abingdon Vineyards. It was founded in 2001 by retired engineers, Bob Carlson & Janet Nordin. Abingdon Vineyards is truly a community effort with a wonderful team & many volunteers that help tend to the land, grapes, wine & guests!
VINEYARD & CELLAR TEAM
Micah, Chandler, Adam & Loren take excellent care of our 13 acres of grapes and craft incredible wine from the harvest.
Owner, Loren Gardner, grew up in Napa Valley, studied viticulture and wine making at UC Davis, and built many wineries and vineyards with his construction company. He has embraced the regional grape varietals and created world class wines with a unique terroir.
Vineyard Manager and Cellar Master, Adam Bolt, began his career at Abingdon Vineyards before spending 4 years developing the viticulture program at Nicewonder Vineyards. He is now back at Abingdon Vineyards, which he calls "home."
