Junius Lindsay Vineyard
We are really proud of what we do here and quite frankly we'd like to brag on it a little
Every single drop of our wines comes from our own grapes, grown right here in our vineyard. That
makes our wines unique to our land and our vineyard. The French called that "terroir"
The grape varietals we grow are Viognier, Roussanne, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache.
After living abroad for many years, I returned to the family home place with a dream of
transforming the century old Zimmerman Farm into a vineyard which would produce fine, Old World
The vineyard is named for my grandfather, Junius Lindsay Zimmerman, who with his bride, Beatrice
Estelle Evans, started Zimmerman Farm in 1894. Lindsay was the proprietor of The Arcadia Mill and
farmed, while Beatrice raised five children and taught school. Since I moved back to the home
place in the late 1990’s, my goal has been to preserve the farm for future generations.
The first two acres were planted in 2004 and eventually grew to 11 acres. The initial vinifera was
Viognier, a rare white variety that originated in Condrieu, on France's Northern Rhône River, that
traces its heritage back over 2000 years. Soon other varietals were added: Syrah, Petite Sirah
(durif), Roussanne and Grenache.
Our boutique vineyard serves estate-bottled, nationally acclaimed French-style wines. All of the
grape varietals are native to the Rhône Valley of Southern France. The overriding goal is to
produce wine that reflects the unique characteristics of the vineyard’s soil and microclimate,
very much in the Old World fashion.Junius Lindsay Vineyard, in northern Davidson County, is located in the Yadkin Valley AVA
(American Viticulture Area).
You are welcome to Junius Lindsay Vineyard to share our passion for good wine, commitment to
quality, and love of the land.
