Vineyard owners, Paul & Katie Krop, shared a vision of creating a community-based vineyard & winery when they began making their first bottles in small batches out of backyard fruits grown from their home. For them, it was a natural hobby blending their passion for chemistry (both had medical careers) & their love of wine. In 2005, they found a parcel of land outside of Kilmarnock, VA that had been used for mining top soil, sand, & gravel, & it was at that moment they knew the soils & moderate elevations would be a perfect site to turn their backyard hobby into a front-end business.Today, Good Luck Cellars is an award winning, premium estate vineyard with a tasting room & profitable wine & event business. It is situated on 136 ac w/ 25 acres of planted varietals (24,000 vines) w /approx 20 additional ac.ready for planting & another 55 ac that require clearing but have suitable soils for strong growth.The Krops have created an impressive production facility for their estate-grown, hand-crafted wines which hosts 23,500 annual visitors & 550 members of the GLC private wine club. Guests can savor both wine & the sunset views on outdoor covered porches overlooking vineyard vistas.
