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.
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 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 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 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.
