Tranquility Vineyard

Tranquility Vineyard

Tranquility Vineyard is a seven acre vineyard planted in 1999 by its owners: Al and Mary Taylor.  Set in the rolling hills of the Virginia Piedmont, the vineyard sits at about 510 feet above sea level.  The original planting included 4 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by one acre of Tannat in 2005.  The final planting was about 1 and 3/4 acres more Tannat in 2013.  The soils are primarily comprised of "Pennsylvania Silt Loam", are very nutritionally rich, and very rocky as well.  The majority of the rows run in a North/South direction, with just one acre that runs East/West.  Much like Nevaeh, the vines are all trained to a Vertical Shoot Positioning, but are spur pruned instead of cane.  The fall of the land is outstanding for both air and water drainage, making it a great location for a vineyard.  The grapes have never been irrigated and thus have very deep roots, making them more drought resistant and bringing up some minerality from the rocky sub soils. The Tranquility fruit has been in great demand since day one due to this incredible site.  It has been used for several wineries in the past, but today is solely leased by Tarara.  Some fruit is still allocated to close friends though at 8 Chains North, Otium Cellars and Hiddencroft Vineyards.  In 2005 Ben Renshaw took over the management of the vineyard and has maintained it ever since.  Starting with the 2011 season, the Tranquility Vineyard is being leased entirely by Tarara Winery.
