Good Luck Cellars has resurrected an old sand and gravel mine into a marvel of ecologic recovery: a vineyard and winery site of magical beauty and serenity. Come join us to celebrate hand crafted estate grown wines of superb quality.
Seven years ago, vineyard owners, Paul and Katie Krop shared a vision of creating a community-based vineyard and winery out of a parcel of land that had been used for mining top soil, sand, and gravel. The earth remaining from the mine was full of sand and gravel - perfect for cultivating grapevines. With the help of an amazing team of experts and the support of family and friends, Paul and Katie have planted 12 acres of vines and an impressive production facility for all of their estate-grown wines.
Paul and Katie's passion for the chemistry of winemaking stems from their first career in medicine. They began making wine in small batches in their home in Virginia Beach out of fruits grown in their own backyard. When they discovered the Good Luck land just outside of Kilmarnock, they saw a perfect location to expand their hobby into a business.
