North Gate Vineyard

North Gate Vineyard North Gate Vineyard is owned and operated by Mark and Vicki Fedor. We started in 1997 by caring for a few neglected grape vines on the North Gate property we had just purchased. That small effort has led us down a path which we are still walking. Along the way we have learned by doing. We've made some mistakes, had some successes, worked hard, and had a lot of fun. More importantly, we've met some smart, wonderful people who have helped mentor us and cultivate the passion and dedication for excellence that we have for growing grapes and making wine. From 2003 through the 2006 vintage, Mark and Vicki were the winemakers for Corcoran Vineyards (formerly Waterford Vineyards) in Waterford, Virginia. Our vintages have garnered over 50 medals in national and international competitions. We are proud of these accomplishments, but we continue to strive to set the standards higher for Loudoun County and Virginia wines.

  Cabernet Franc
Spice and bright red cherry fruit up front, followed by a smooth black pepper finish that is characteristic of this varietal in Virginia. Hints of chocolate and coffee complement the oak from American and French barrels. Look for these flavors to continue to intensify with age. Enjoy this with a slow simmered beef stew or any tomato-based dishes, such as Italian cuisine. We're also finding it's our default wine to pair with an evening in front of the fireplace.
With definitely more of an "unoaked" character, this lighter style Chardonnay was fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel and oak. The barrel aging augments the stone fruit and citrus flavors of the Chardonnay grape with soft tannins and a bit more depth. With a sophisticated balance of acidity, alcohol, and fruit flavors, this wine provides a unique complexity from the initial taste on the palette through a bright, lemony finish. Pairs well with many poultry dishes, or try with a salmon burger, hot off the grill.
Science gives way to art when a winemaker puts together a blend of wines that is greater than the sum of its parts. We evaluate the characteristics of the parts we have to work with and then create a blend that shows the best of our Cabernet Franc, (47%), Cabernet Sauvignon (26%), Petit Verdot (21%), and Merlot (6%). The result is a full-bodied wine, complete and complex from start to finish.
This medium-bodied Bordeaux is showing deep aromas of dark, jammy wild cherries, roasty oak, and a hint of earthiness. Aging in French oak and a touch of Petit Verdot integrate Old World structure and tannic strength into this soft, supple, easy going red. Try with grilled pork tenderloin with cranberries.
  NV Apple
This is a return to our roots – the first wine we ever made. We think it tastes just like biting into a crisp, sweet, juicy apple! We used a nice mix of sweet and tart apples, so there’s a good balance of flavors. Just a touch of sugar remains to make this a pleasant aperitif, table wine, or even dessert wine with a fresh fruit tart or angel food cake. The perfect picnic or patio wine. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this wine are being donated to Blue Ridge Greyhound Adoption.
  Petit Menseng
Highly aromatic, full of peach, exotic fruits, cinnamon, and honey. Pairs well with goat cheese or spiced Asian dishes.
  Petit Verdot
We are proud to offer our first Estate grown wine. 100% of the Petit Verdot comes directly from our own vineyard. This Bordeaux varietal is often used for blending and brings rich tannins and deep color to any wine it is matched with. We also believe this grape can make a nice varietal wine, showcasing its intensity and complexity to make it the big, bold red in the line-up. Sweet violet aromas, fresh cedar and just the right amount of French oak integrate into a soft start, bold mid-palate, and lingering finish. Pairs well with a classic steak dinner.
This Viognier starts with aromas of sweet jasmine and tropical fruit with a touch of vanilla and butterscotch. The medium bodied nature of this wine includes a wide mouth feel and soft textures on the palette which can be attributed to 6 months of aging in neutral French oak barrels. There is a nice balance of acidity and spice throughout, leading to a lingering finish with subtle hints of grapefruit. Classic pairings include crab cakes and any "kicked up" shellfish or poultry dishes with a little spice.
