Our newest home on the golf course being built by Charles Ross Homes is almost complete and it is a stunner. What a beautiful home with an amazing view of the fairways of the Club at Viniterra, the lake and the vineyards.

Love that I am right next door to the New Kent Winery because even on a rainy day there is something fun to do! Steven Hall of Small Town Gossip kept us well entertained out on the porch while Kim Rayford of Popping Mealies kept our bellies happy – you have to try the Mac & Cheese wrap! Thank you to New Kent Winery for a fun afternoon.

What an amazing day we had for the Jimmy Barrett’s Blue Ball Open hosted by the Club at Viniterra and New Kent Winery yesterday. The theme for this year’s event was the “Best of Blue Ball”: therefore they had some of their best, funniest and most entertaining holes out on the course. Some of the tricked out holes included The Big Green Monster a large wall constructed around one of the greens, dessert storm hole where you had to tee off from the sand, meteorite hole, and much more. New Kent Winery had wine tasting out on the course and the outing was followed by an award ceremony at the winery. DeFazio’s catering donating their time and kept our tummies full with some delicious chili, cornbread and all the fixings. A great time was had by all for a great cause.. goal was to raise over $40,000 for the Fisher House! We cannot wait to find out the total amount raised. Thank you to everyone that came out for this truly unique event!
What a fun day.. I walked over to New Kent Winery to sit in on one of their cooking classes. I am more of a mac and cheese in the box type of cook but thought why not try and learn something new. So when I heard that we were going to learn how to make Ravioli’s I was excited and intimidated. Thankfully Chef Tammy Brawley with The Green Kitchen showed us a short-cut, check it out and watch the video on our Facebook page. The class was sold out and was a blast to attend. I found out that cooks of all skill levels would enjoy these classes.
Menu from class today included:
-Arugula Salad with Grilled Pears, Prosciutto and Goat Cheese “Croutons” with a Raspberry Vinaigrette
-Spinach Fettucine Alfredo
-Butternut Squash Ravioli with Sage Brown Butter
-Tiramisu for Dessert

Viniterra is known for its award winning wine but if you are in the mood for something a little different like a good beer there are plenty of local craft breweries to check out. One that is about 20 minutes from Viniterra located near Williamsburg is Brass Canon Brewery. This is was a delightful adventure getting to meet Phil, President of Brass Cannon. The founders started as homebrewers and ran into the problem of friends asking for more… so they started a business and it has been successful with plans to expand into a larger facility this year. Our favorite was the Angry Scott, this tasting paired well with a stop on the way back for lunch at Rose & Crown Tavern in New Kent.
We are excited to welcome Boyer Homes as one of our Signature Builders. Bob Boyer of Boyer Homes has been building in Viniterra while working with Dumont Homes. With support from Dumont Homes Bob has branched out and opened his own business, Boyer Homes, Inc.
Bob Boyer simply stated, “I have learned the value of what reputation is and how much that means in the custom home building business. Building the house is only a part of the equation, interacting and working with each customer and building a relationship is the other key to a successful business.”
- Bob Boyer kept the construction of our new home on schedule, and all through the construction process we found Bob Boyer to be very responsive to any questions. We would highly recommend Bob Boyer and Boyer Homes, Inc. as your choice for your new home in Viniterra.

This past Friday with the weather in the 70’s I walked over to New Kent Winery’s Annual Holiday Open House. It was the perfect way to spend a late December afternoon by sitting out on the porch sipping on a glass of wine. The staff did it up right and had plenty of munchies to snack on while I did some last minute shopping, picking up some wine, local honey, and chocolates. As I made my way up to the tasting bar I realized that the day was getting even better, they had Kelly from Chocolates by Kelly pairing chocolates with the wine! Thanks again to the staff at New Kent Winery for such a great time.
This year’s celebration of GREAT FOOD and DRINK was definitely on point this past Saturday Evening. The Viniterra Holiday party is as always a fun time for all of us to get together! Our family continues to grow and it was a packed festive house of residents and staff. Speaking of staff, compliments to Chef Jimmy Forrest for the amazing ribs!
We wish everyone a wonderful and safe Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
