Tim and Emily Faltemier recently purchased Three Fox Vineyards from John and Holli Todhunter. After years of searching for "just the right place", they believe they have found their new home (and they also hope that John and Holli will continue to stay to be their guiding light in this new adventure).
Three Fox is an Italian focused winery that matches Emily's Italian roots. The vineyard is planted with 15 acres of grapes including many Italian varietals Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, and Pinot Grigio. On estate they also grow Cabernet Franc and Merlot, both of which are grown in many parts of Italy. Chardonnay, and Chambourcin are sourced from area growers.
In a very Italian tradition, all of the wines have “fanciful” names, most in Italian with one good French one (Alouette for the Cabernet Franc) thrown in. The vineyards now cover 15 acres on site. Eventually, a case production goal of 5000 per year is targeted.
What's In A Name?
The name Three Fox Vineyards originated from John and Holli Todhunter who, when purchasing the property originally in 2002, saw three foxes playing in the meadow.
