Slater run vineyards
SLATER RUN VINEYARDS is a vineyard and winery located in Upperville, Virginia that produced its first vintages in 2014. Started in 2010 by Christopher and Kiernan Slater Patusky, and Kiernan's parents Bob and Alice Slater, the winery represents the continuation of a 300-year tradition of farming by Kiernan's family along Goose Creek. Slater Run Vineyards has 12 acres of close spaced vines that produce a Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Rosé, and Cabernet Franc, as well as two Bordeaux blends called First Bridge and Roots.
Owner Kiernan Slater Patusky’s ancestor John Glascock built the first Rockburn Farm house on Goose Creek Road in Upperville, Virginia in 1720. His descendant Thomas Glascock purchased Rose Hill farm, including the current vineyard and winery site, in the 1840s. When Mr. Glascock's granddaughter Tacie Glascock Fletcher married George H. Slater in 1905, the farm passed into the Slater name.
With the help of her parents, Bob and Alice Slater, Kiernan and her husband, Chris Patusky, planted the first vineyard in 2010 and moved back to the farm in 2011 with their two young children. They built the winery and produced their first vintages in 2014, thus continuing a nearly 300 year tradition of family farming along Goose Creek. A second vineyard was planted in 2015.
