New Kent Winery Sold

Six years after sprouting up in New Kent County, a local winery has changed hands.

Joe and Jo Anna Dombroski bought the New Kent Winery near the Club at Viniterra golf course last month from developer Boddie-Noell Enterprises. It caps a five-year Virginia vineyard search for the Dombroskis, a husband and wife who said they got the thirst for their own winery while living in Europe about six years ago.

“We had the opportunity to live in Italy overlooking a vineyard, and we knew this was something we would like to do,” Jo Anna Dombroksi said. “It was a family dream.”

The Dombrokis took over operations at the vineyard on Sept. 8. They bought the winery’s 150 acres for $1 million, but the couple said the full price for the business and the land will exceeded that figure.

They declined to divulge a precise cost for the winery, citing a confidentiality agreement.

Stalled New Kent Development moving forward.

A developer is jump-starting a stalled development with a $22 million plan.

John Adamson, acting as Maidstone Village LLC, is acquiring Maidstone, a mixed-use development in New Kent County, VA that faltered through lack of financing, bankruptcy and ultimately foreclosure. Adamson will downsize the project but maintain previous owner Grosjean “John” Crump’s vision of a traditional English village that puts government buildings, schools and churches within walking distance.

“I think that John Crump had an admirable vision for the project, and I think he definitely wanted to leave a positive footprint on New Kent with this particular development,” Adamson said. “We’re putting a slight twist on what he initially had envisioned.”image

The new plans call for about 50 single-family homes, down from the original 70 townhouses Crump had planned, and 50,000 square feet of commercial space on New Kent Highway. Joyner Commercial’s Jon Beckner, who brokered the Maidstone purchase on Adamson’s behalf, expects the development to cost about $22 million.

Talks are ongoing with Virginia Beach-based J.F. Schoch Building Corp. to build the houses at Maidstone. Schoch will buy the individual lots before construction. The finished homes are projected to sell for $195,000 to $235,000

New Kent County takes steps to force Farms of New Kent into foreclosure

A portion of a New Kent County real estate development, still trying to pick up steam after the downturn, could be headed to auction. New Kent Vineyards, near Exit 211 off Interstate 64, is a partially developed 2,500-acre plan that includes the Club at Viniterra golf course and the New Kent Winery. It was conceived amid the real estate boom, when many developers rushed to the rural county as the next bedroom community for Richmonders.

The county is eyeing about 180 acres that make up the commercial section of New Kent Vineyards as the parcels’ owner is behind on millions of dollars in infrastructure bond payments.

After more than two years without payment, the county this month took the initial steps to potentially force the property to auction. It hired local law firm Sands Anderson to post public notice that the Farms of New Kent LLC, tied to developer Nathan Shor and a partner, is delinquent on the bond payments. This action only applies to the Farms of New Kent LLC which includes the commercial portions of Land Bay 4 and 5 and Land Bay 3 of New Kent Vineyards.  

Although the golf course, winery and some homes are up and running, residential has been slow to develop there,  the commercial piece has sat largely dormant.

Do note that Land Bay 1 which includes the winery, the golf course and the Viniterra residential community is under separate ownership and not affiliated with Farms of New Kent LLC.   They are current on their CDA assessment payments that are referenced in the article below.  Any action taken by the County or the Bondholders against the commercial properties has no legal bearing on the Land Bay 1 properties.

About 750,000 square feet of commercial space is envisioned for the acreage, which sits near the development’s New Kent Winery.

Should it get as far as an auction, proceeds would be used to repay what’s owed to bondholders, made up mostly of institutional investors.

But both the county and the developer are looking for a more positive resolution.

“Everybody’s hope is the development continues to improve,” said Dan Siegel, an attorney with Sands Anderson representing the county. “We’re trying to be as helpful as possible to make sure this works. But when it comes down to it, we have to collect [the bond payments].”

New Kent Development Going to Auction

Parts of New Kent Courthouse Village, a partially-built $30 million mixed-use development modeled after a traditional English village,are set to go foreclosure auction after filing for  Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection back in October 2011

The banks that lent money on the project are EVB, Essex Bank and Colonial Virginia Bank.

Lenders are foreclosing and auctioning off the residential and commercial portions of the development, which stalled as the economy took a free-fall.

The existing businesses aside from the restaurant are not a part of these actions.

New Kent Courthouse Village was created by John Crump , New Kent County’s former commissioner of the revenue. It has been in the works for eight years.

Initial court filings showed the development owes $1 million to Colonial Virginia Bank and hundreds of thousands to individuals, including Crump.

The developer company that created New Kent Village is owned 50/50 by Crump and his uncle L. Drexel Crump, who lives in Florida.

Crump, had envisioned a community like one would find in England. He even sent the architect to England to experience the “Village experience” which would include a church, government building, school and green space all within walking distance.

new kent village building[2]Unfortunately the economy isn’t allowing Crump’s vision to move forward and Tranzon Fox will conduct a  Foreclosure Auction for a 3.14± acre, partially developed site known as Preservation Park. It is immediately adjacent to the New Kent County government complex and  part of the New Kent Village development. The parcel is composed of nine planned development pads, one of the pads contains the currently operating restaurant, the Rose & Crown Tavern, and another contains a partially completed commercial building. Most of the parking is in place.

The  Rose and Crown  restaurant is in a restored 1810 house . Outside the restaurant is a restored smokehouse for curing meats and a restored log kitchen, which was developed as a museum with help from the Virginia Historic Society.

image[6]The  1500 square foot partially completed commercial building is adjacent to the restaurant . Public water and sewer are in place for phase one and available for phase two. I believe this was built to house a Glassblower/ retail store..

Most of the parking lot work is complete.

Auction/Sale date and time

4/03/12 @ 1:30 PM ET at the New Kent Courthouse, New Kent VA.

The second parcel that is being auctioned by Colonial Virginia Bank  is a 9 acre parcels that was slated to become the Maidstone community. A model home sits at the front but no other homes were ever built. It was subdivided into 71 lots but could be re-subdivided. The roadwork is partially completed with curb/ gutter in but no paving was completed.

Plans were in place to build very high quality , energy-efficient single family detached homes,  townhomes, and carriage homes. The model home was built with an accessory apartment that was allowed by code to be rented out by a homeowner. An interesting feature that could bring in a future rental income stream for residents.

maidstone , new kent village model homeOf course quality has a cost and Crump could not find buyers for the homes which ranged in price from $225k for a 1200 sq. foot model to $325k for a 2256 square foot detached home. The homes were to feature 6” exterior walls, 50 year roof shingles, hardiplank siding, extensive interior trim, Anderson windows, granite countertops, 9 foot  ceilings, hardwood floors and a host of features not typically found in homes at this price range.

I think if this development had been built in Williamsburg it would have sold like hotcakes but most New Kent buyers were opting for lower cost homes with much more square footage.

The bank  sale is scheduled for March 29, 2012 @ 10AM at the development site.

This parcel is 9.031 Acres and contains was recorded as 71 Lots; It could be Re-Subdivided; Colonial Virginia Bank was the lender on this property and is leading the foreclosure proceedings.

New Kent Developer Says It Can Make It

New Kent VillageA fledgling real estate development in New Kent County, VA is taking a gamble that’s rare these days.

New Kent Courthouse Village, a stalled $30 million mixed-use development modeled after a traditional English village, requested to have its Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection dismissed last month, saying it can work out new terms with its lenders and keep the project alive on its own.

Developer Grosjean “John” Crump put the project in Chapter 11 in September to prevent a foreclosure by one of its lenders.

Now with the development out of bankruptcy, Crump said last week that he was making proposals to the project’s three main lenders to refinance million in loans.

019“Hopefully we can get this project moving again,” said Crump. “We worked it out with two [lenders] and have one more we’re working with now.”

Crump, New Kent County’s former commissioner of the revenue, started working on the venture eight years ago. The project stalled after it ran out of money and was unable to obtain new financing to keep it going.

New Kent Winery Wins Top Award

October 2011-New Kent Winery’s 2009 Reserve Chardonnay has been awarded the 2011 Virginia Governor’s Cup for white wines, the top award given for wines grown in the state.

The Governor’s Cup was presented to New Kent Managing Partner Pete Johns and the winery’s winemaker, Tom Payette, by Gov. Bob McDonnell and First Lady Maureen McDonnell at ceremonies at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts where the winner was announced.

New Kent’s 2009 Chardonnay Reserve was judged best from among 162 wines entered from 52 wineries, representing all of the appellations in the Commonwealth. The 30th annual Virginia Governor’s Cup competition for white wines was sponsored by the Virginia Wineries Association.

“I am humbled and honored to accept this award and do so with great pride,” said Johns in accepting the award this week. “I acknowledge my partners in this winery, Boddie-Noell Enterprises, the wonderful New Kent Winery staff and our exceptional winemaker, Tom Payette. Tom’s expertise and magical touch has helped New Kent Winery establish itself as one of Virginia’s premier wineries.”

Johns and Payette have worked closely for more than eight years to establish vineyards for the Winery which opened publicly in 2008.

“What a huge honor to be recognized for our 2009 Chardonnay Reserve,” said Payette. “It’s a privilege to work with such fine people at New Kent Winery and I am blessed to be able to do what I love to do – making wine, especially this beautiful Chardonnay.”

Fermentation on the yeast lees in small premium American oak barrels makes this well rounded creamy Virginia Reserve Chardonnay unique among other wines.  Extremely youthful despite its vintage, New Kent Winery’s 2009 Reserve Chardonnay pairs beautifully with flavorful cheeses and all types of shellfish, veal, pork, poultry, seafood and cream sauce pasta dishes, according to Johns.

Captiva Four Seasons at New Kent VineyardsNew Kent Winery is part of a large Master Planned Community,  the New Kent Vineyards which includes the nearby upscale residential development Viniterra and the 55+ active adult community,  The Four Seasons at New Kent Vineyards

The Winery was constructed from historic materials, including pre-Civil War oversized handmade brick, reclaimed heart pine columns, beams and trusses and cypress logs that were under water for more than 150 years.

The Governor’s Cup for white wines was selected from seven Gold medalist wineries.  A panel of 26 judges from five states judged the wines, which represent all of the appellations in the Commonwealth. The Virginia red wines were judged earlier this year and announced at the Virginia Wine Expo in February.

Viniterra Developer to Auction Large Parcels of Land

Boddie-Noell Enterprises, the developer of  Viniterra  a golf course, winery and high-end subdivision in New Kent , VA is auctioning off large parcels of land .

A total of almost 800 acres will be sold  on Oct. 15 ,2011.

The baseline asking price is $1,495 per acre. North Carolina-based Iron Horse Auction Company will handle the auction on the grounds of the New Kent Winery.

Viniterra, the winery-themed housing development and golf course, opened in 2007 and was tied into the New Kent Winery, which opened a year later.

If the $1,495 minimum bid price seems cheap, that’s because the owner wanted to emphasize that it is not underwater and can safely afford to sell the parcels at market price.

In addition to being held under a big tent at the winery, the auction will be broadcast online. The 786 acres will be broken into 26 parcels. Parcels range in size from 15 to 71 acres.  Bidders can bid on a single parcel, pick and choose multiple pieces or go for the entire tract.

Planting the first vines in 2001, the founders of New Kent Winery started realizing their dream of opening a winery in New Kent County. While the vines were maturing to proper age, the founders planned a 17,000 square foot winery, built from materials reclaimed from buildings well over a century old and equipped with state-of-the-art wine making equipment from around the world. The winery itself, designed by Williamsburg architect John Hopke, has been modeled to reflect an earlier time when wine-making was common in the New Kent region.
Unique, warm and inviting, The Tasting Room is the centerpiece of the New Kent Winery. It is there that you’ll sample an exciting variety of wines from your own complimentary etched wine glass. Taste the delicate intricacies of their award-winning Chardonnay Reserve and Meritage; the easily-drinkable Vidal Blanc and White Merlot; and the White Norton, a rose fashioned from grapes native to Virginia. (A note: not all wines may be available at the time of your visit.)
Bring a picnic and relax out in the picnic area, or on the lounging porch, with a bottle of your favorite wine. Only a short drive away, New Kent Winery is ready to welcome you and your friends. Your visit will be relaxing, informative, and enjoyable.

GOLF

The Club at Viniterra is the newest championship golf course designed by acclaimed golf course architect Rees Jones. The course features working vineyards alongside fairways throughout, a signature hallmark of the new Viniterra community.

Nestled in a beautifully wooded area between Richmond and Williamsburg, the Viniterra golf course incorporates a surprisingly wide variety of natural elevations, changing as much as 70 feet from tee to green on several holes. Multiple tee boxes can be found on each hole, usually five or six, to provide the overall yardage and angle-of-play flexibility required for golfers of all skill levels. Depending on which of the tee markers a golfer elects to play, this flexibility allows the course to measure anywhere between 5,300 and 7,600 yards.

Golf at ViniterraThe Club at Viniterra is the only course in this part of Virginia’s Peninsula that incorporates working vineyards alongside fairways throughout, one of the signature hallmarks of the new Viniterra community.

The course features old-growth specimen oak trees that Jones has incorporated into the design as corner points along several of the course’s key holes. Moreover, Viniterra’s estate home sites were designed so that no homes face directly into the view of another and will have minimal impact on the golf experience.

Hole No. 9 is already noted for its unique beauty as it finishes along a lake and the clubhouse while flanked by one of the working vineyards. Another Par 5 is No. 10 which also includes picturesque vineyards along the fairway and a bunker complex overlooking yet another stand of vineyards.

viniterra golf"This is a classic Rees Jones design which makes it good golf both for a championship experience or for a private club membership," notes Viniterra partner and well-known developer Kitty Hawk Land Company President Mickey Hayes.

"It promises to be a very playable design for everyday member play," said Hayes, "but still presents the kinds of challenges that better golfers have come to expect of Jones as the so-called ‘U.S. Open Doctor.’"

As the name suggests, the neighborhood is also close to the community’s vineyards and the New Kent Winery a one-of-a-kind facility producing wines from the community’s vineyards. Thousands of old bricks and dozens of antique timbers went into the construction of the winery, where the making of chardonnays, merlots, and other varietals and blends can be seen and the outcome sampled.

Across the roadway from Four Seasons is the  Arbors offering single-family homes in a number of styles and sizes. Ryan homes is currently building there , K Hovnanian will commence construction in 2011.The Arbors community and Four Seasons are both conveniently located close to the planned shopping center for the community.

As you exit from Interstate 64 and turn north on Route 106, you are on the threshold of New Kent Vineyards. New Kent County’s new Visitor and Commerce Center welcomes you first—its site to be accompanied at a later date by office and retail centers. As you proceed on 106, you travel through several roadway roundabouts, each of which has a distinctive character.

Four Seasons @ NewKent Vineyards siteplan

 

If you continue north  on 106 and looking to the right, you see the future site of The Village, a neo-traditional style neighborhood of commercial, retail and town home residences anchored by a pedestrian mall and Farmers Market. Further, through the roundabout at Route 249, you come to more vineyards and New Kent Winery. This area will also be home to a collection of community amenities that includes a clubhouse, a tennis and aquatics center, a country inn, a restaurant, and an equestrian center.

New Kent Va Real Estate Search

I’m looking for a family friendly community midway between williamsburg and fort lee. I will be working at Sentara in WB and my husband will be working at fort lee. I don’t want to pay more than $250k for a single family home or commute more than 30 minutes. Looking for a fun neighborhood with things to do. I don’t want an area that’s rural, i’m a city girl but don’t want to be in the city either. Any help is appreciated.


The commute from Ft Lee to Williamsburg is about 60 miles using I 64 or 45 miles using Rt 5. Not sure what your definition of rural would be. Midway would be Charles City Courthouse ( Very Rural) or New Kent/ Providence Forge ( A little less rural ) You may want to consider living in Near Ft Lee or in the western part of James City County. Those would be the less rural areas. But one of you would have a long commute. There are a few communities to consider in New Kent VA. If You would consider a town home there are great deals in the Kentland community next to Brickshire adjacent to Royal New Kent Golf Course. Community amenities will include a pool, clubhouse and walking trails. These are very open floor plan town homes. Prices start in the low $200’s for an almost 2000 sq foot garage model.

Two other nearby communities to consider would be The Oaks near the New Kent Courthouse. A new detached home community just getting off the ground. Homes there start in the low $200’s for a 1400 sq foot 3 bedroom  ranch. The builder is offering $5000 in closing costs assistance and an additional  $3000 for active duty or retired military. Another builder in the Oaks is offering a 1940 sq foot 4 bedroom home for $236k. Most homes there are on lots that are almost half an acre. (.45) The Oaks is located very close to a new village community being developed next to the New Kent Courthouse. When complete New Kent Village will remind you of a European village .  They have only recently started construction. Current businesses already committed to the project include a market, day care, bank, a glass blower studio, Doctors Office and a Dentist Office.  The charming cottage-style homes are English inspired, Neo-Traditional, rich in detail, and environmentally conscious with “green” principles employed in their design. Prices will start at $225,000. I have to say this is one of the most well thought out community I have ever seen. It is amazing how much time and effort has been spent in the planning of New Kent Village. Inspired by towns and villages in Europe, John Crump the developer wanted to revive New Kent where his family has lived since the 1700’s. To inspire the planners and architects he flew them to Switzerland and England to see closeup what his vision was. Hopefully this will inspire other developers to follow suit.

Another up and coming community is located within The Farms of New Kent/ Viniterra/ New Kent Vineyards community  The Arbors at New Kent Vineyards. The community will include a clubhouse, pool and walking trails.Located midway between Richmond and Williamsburg it’s just a stone’s throw the world-class golf,( under construction) and stunning winery at Viniterra nd the I-64 corridor. Prices there start at $259,000 for a 1980 sq foot home. Current builder incentives are $7500 in closing cost allowances.

 

Although it’s a long way from being finished Viniterra/ Farms of New Kent/ New Kent Vineyards is well on the way to becoming a beautiful place to live.  When complete this community is planned to include more than 2,300 homes, including a major active-adult retirement community, a  large variety neighborhoods, estate homes, a Rees Jones signature golf course, vineyards, a winery, country inn, a village center ( designed around the concept of Merchants Square in Colonial Williamsburg) and over 600,000 square feet of retail and office space.  Numerous community amenities will complement the vast open spaces that will be preserved within and around this signature development.  Build out will likely take 8-10 years to complete this 2100 acre community.

A new Wal Mart or Target is rumored to be built at exit 214 withing a few miles of The Farms of New Kent/ Viniterra. This should rapidly propel retail offering in the area which is the one current shortcoming.

The New Kent Vineyards will be as complete a community as exists anywhere in the country. But this is not about squeezing in quantity over quality. This is about taking the time with every single decision to make sure it is in rhythm with the land and in synergy with the dreams and desires of the people who have lived in this region and who will soon be living here.

The best way to capture the essence of The New Kent Vineyards is to look at the site plans. You can do that right here on this web site. Explore the residential sites, the golf course and winery, the equestrian center, the trails, lakes, the retail and commercial areas. Take a first glimpse of building elevations and floor plans. Start to see the pieces that will come together.

The New Kent Vineyards will create a high quality rural community using the highest land planning standards that complement the surrounding area. It is our vision that this community will be ecologically sensitive through wetland preservation and gentle grading; that new architecture and structures will be inspired by, but not replicate, existing historical sites; that its neighborhoods will enhance and augment New Kent County’s current economic basis through continued agricultural uses, balanced with commercial uses and supporting residential uses.

It has been said that if you understand the history of New Kent County you will have learned much about the history of our country. Named for County Kent, England, New Kent was founded 120 years before America became America. It is where Captain John Smith met Pocahontas. It is where George Washington and Lafayette traveled through on their way to cornering Cornwallis at Yorktown. It is where a young George Washington met Martha and where President John Tyler met his wife, Letitia Christian.

Everywhere you turn in New Kent County there is a story to be told of a nation emerging on its way to greatness. The farms, the estates and churches, the businesses. every one holds a rich place in the history of this region and the country.

The undulating topography of this Rees Jones course is enough to make your golf outing special. Add in the clubhouse, winery, and immaculate attention to service, and you have a golf experience that is very, very special.

Horse Center

The Viniterra Equestrian Facility was inspired by the famed Middleburg Training Center. The center will provide back-to-back stalls, tack rooms, and a sandy surface around the perimeter of the barn that will enable tenants to ride during inclement weather. A riding ring will be cut into the hillside in front of the stable for showings and dressage events, and miles of riding and carriage trails will be yours to enjoy.

Winery

After eight years of planning, planting, and building, the New Kent Winery opened in May 2008. New Kent is a 12,000 square-foot winery built with green values that reflects the founders’ deep sense of commitment to the fundamentals of winemaking and their sense of responsibility for carefully preserving the history and culture of Virginia. The New Kent Vineyard is leading the way in creating the next chapter of our esteemed commonwealth’s wine history.

 Golf

The Club at Viniterra is the newest championship golf course designed by acclaimed golf course architect Rees Jones. Our course features working vineyards alongside fairways throughout, a signature hallmark of the new Viniterra community. This members-only course is scheduled to open in Spring 2009.

The course will be maintained using environmentally conservational practices. Unlike many courses, The Club at Viniterra will be entirely sodded to save as much as 80% of the water consumed by traditional courses, and the course will use only the grass hybrid “Celebration,” which is far more draught-resistant and requires 70% less water to maintain than traditional course sods. And, The Club at Viniterra course will never use potable water for irrigation. Instead, a series of ponds will collect rainwater and runoff to distribute this water to the course for all required irrigation, making it virtually self-sustaining.

The Club at Viniterra Golf Course features:

  • A wide variety of natural elevations that change as much as 70 feet from
    tee to green on several holes
  • Multiple tee boxes can be found on each hole to provide overall yardage
    and angle-of-play flexibility for golfers of all skill levels to have challenging
    but enjoyable play
  • The course can measure anywhere between 5,300 and 7,600 yards depending on which tee markers a golfer elects to play
  • Stately old-growth oak trees as corner points along several of the
    course’s keyholes
  • Estate homesites placed to have minimal impact on the golf experience

 
The course also will feature The Club at Viniterra Clubhouse, which will be managed by ClubCorp of America. This 14,000-square-foot clubhouse, pro shop, teaching studio, and practice range is scheduled to begin opening in 2009.

POLO

Full-size, competition-worthy polo fields will be available for those who prefer their time in the saddle to be a bit more competitive. Viniterra will become a center of polo club activity in Virginia. Professional field maintenance will be provided so that treading-in will only be required at halftimes.

And, our polo grounds will play host to a number of wine festivals. For those seeking the very best of Virginia wine, polo, and golf, Viniterra will be the exceptional community that brings it all together.

Shopping

 

What wonders will you find at the Town Village? Everything you can imagine and more. The village shops will provide residents with shopping, medical services, and a wide and varied selection of restaurants and boutiques. And don’t forget the charming farmer’s market, which will be thoughtfully stocked with local organic produce for those perfect meals at home.

 Tennis

The Viniterra Tennis Complex will offer Har-Tru tennis courts, a fully stocked tennis pro shop, and recreation staff to help with everything from lessons to equipment.

Fitness and Aquatic Center

 

Pilates, yoga, state-of-the-art cardio and strength equipment, and luxurious locker rooms complete with showers and saunas will be yours to use whenever you want. And, on-site trainers will be available to guide your workout for a nominal fee.

Building Lots

 

Viniterra features estate-sized homesites from 1 to 2 + acres with woodland, marsh, and golf course views priced from $195,000 and custom homes priced from the $900’s. Extensive Virginia wine country amenities will include a working winery and vineyards, a Rees Jones championship golf course, state-of-the-art equestrian center and polo fields, fitness and aquatic center, tennis center, and a village shopping center. We now offer luxury lots for sale throughout the community. Viniterra offers the very best Richmond and New Kent real estate opportunities available today. When complete, this community of luxury estate homes will be the finest golf course community in Virginia.

The master plan for the New Kent Vineyards community is initially planned to include 2,500 homes, including a major Four Seasons-branded, active-adult 55 + age restricted retirement community with K. Hovnanian Homes as the exclusive builder, a variety of market-rate housing opportunities, estate homes, a signature golf course, vineyards, a winery, country inn, a village center and over 650,000 square feet of retail and office space. Numerous community amenities will complement the vast open spaces that will be preserved within and around this signature development. Additional land is also controlled by the development partnership, which will allow for further expansion of the program over the coming years as well.

Build-out of New Kent Vineyards will likely take 8-10 years .  Lot deliveries are expected to start in late 2007 with homes anticipated in early 2008.

The Farms of New Kent is located on approximately 2,113 acres and located 30 miles east of Richmond. 30 miles west of Williamsburg.. The community eventually will feature 2,500 homes, 650,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, and tourist and recreational amenities, including a working vineyard and an 18-hole championship golf course.

 

The  championship course that will wind among the estate homes of the Viniterra neighborhood is scheduled for

opening in June 2009, and its renowned designer, Rees Jones, will be in attendance at the grand opening.

 

 

 

Fully developed home sites in the first phases of both neighborhoods are virtually complete. Development of Viniterra’s estate lots are well under way.

 

Estate homes and a championship golf course have become the classic pairing in many upscale communities. In Viniterra, the nature of the land

itself joins in for a perfect threesome. As acreage for the spectacular Rees Jones design has been cleared, the topography has revealed itself to be

ideally suited to the envisioned course design. In fact, the inevitable surprises that come with the course’s construction have added to make it

even more of a spectacular design.

All eighteen holes of the new course have emerged from the rolling woodlands. Tees, fairways, greens, cart paths, ponds and lakes are being

shaped on all of the holes—including a par-3 hole with fifteen tee boxes . Rees Jones has visited the course a number of times, making adjustments

that will result in a truly first-class course. Water resources will be maximized by tapping the course’s lakes and ponds for irrigation and by

using drought-resistant grasses and other suitable planting materials. The streets that will define the first phases of Vinterra’s residential

neighborhoods are largely in place and are being paved this spring. Builders and prospective residents now have access to tour homesites as they are

taking shape. In the meantime, the community’s completed gatehouse welcomes visitors to a neighborhood defined by such a spectacular golf course.

The Club at Viniterra will feature its own clubhouse with extensive amenities, including full-service restaurants, men’s and ladies locker rooms and a golf teaching studio.

Shops, restaurants, a bed-and-breakfast, and even equestrian amenities are all features of this imaginative plan. Within the neo-traditional Village will be commercial, retail and residential components anchored by a pedestrian mall and Farmers Market.

Winemaking in this region dates to the early 1600s, when British law required the planting of 20 grapevines for each adult male colonist. New Kent Winery is more than 12,000 square feet in size and built with more than 70 percent reclaimed materials including 40-foot heart pine trusses and pre-Civil War brick.

 Viniterra is a 1,200-acre development located within the master-planned community of New Kent Vineyards, sited halfway between the cities of Richmond and Williamsburg, Virginia.

 The centerpiece of Viniterra is the New Ken Winery, designed in an old-world style, and surrounded by acres of vineyards. With six wines currently being produced at the New Kent Winery, including two Chardonnays, one Vidal, one Blush, one Meritage, and one Merlot.  First-time owners at Viniterra will be offered their own casks of Viniterra wine with their names on them.

• Viniterra’s winery has been constructed using historic, recycled materials like heart pine trusses from the former Southern Railroad depot in downtown Richmond, 100-year-old cypress logs recovered from the rivers of Florida, and 19th-century brick from Richmond’s warehouse district.

• Viniterra’s architecture is decidedly Virginian in its roots, drawing generously from the Colonial and Federal styles of historic Williamsburg and Richmond.

• Club Corporation of America, best-known in Virginia for managing the Homestead, will manage Viniterra’s clubhouse and membership, as well as the golf course, tennis courts, and other outdoor activities.
