Chatham Vineyards on Church Creek

Family-owned and operated by The Wehner family, Chatham Vineyards overlooks Church Creek, on the eastern shore of Virginia.  Several historic buildings line the property including a Federal-period brick house built in 1818. Chatham Farm has been a working farm for over four centuries.

Chatham produces over 3000 cases of wine annually including multiple varieties of chardonnay, merlot and cabernet.  The grapes are hand-picked and sorted before pressing to ensure the highest quality of the juice.  Their Steel Chardonnay varietal was recognized by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.  In addition, the vineyard was recognized as one of the “100 Best of Virginia” by Virginia Living Magazine.

Ever aware of the importance of promoting their local surroundings, Chatham has featured wine pairings with purveyors of local, Church Creek oysters and partnered with neighboring  business, Southeast Expeditions, on eco-friendly kayaking tours.  They host many events throughout the year but you can also find them at wine festivals throughout the mid-Atlantic region.

Judging by the breathtaking views of this expansive vineyard, the short drive to Virginia’s eastern shore is a trip worth taking!  See for yourself at
