Vineyard owners, Paul and Katie Krop, shared a vision of creating a community-based vineyard and winery out of a parcel of land that was used for mining top soil, sand, and gravel. The earth remaining from the mine was perfect for cultivating grapevines. With the help of an amazing team of experts and the support of family and friends, Paul and Katie now have nearly 25 acres of vines planted and an impressive production facility for all of their hand-crafted, 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 from their home in Virginia Beach out of fruits grown in their backyard. When they discovered the Good Luck land, they saw a perfect location to expand their hobby into a business.
