We have an exciting announcement to share with you all today regarding the future of Thatch Winery.
We’ve been honored to serve as a place for friends, new and old, to gather and share in a love of great wine and good conversation in our beautiful corner of Charlottesville. Our wine has received top honors both locally and nationally. Our picturesque buildings & grounds have been the backdrop for countless brides and grooms to start their lives together, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
We will all hold on to those wonderful memories as Thatch begins its next chapter under the leadership of renowned Winemaker and neighbor, Michael Shaps. When he approached us at the beginning of the year, we knew that his expertise was the right fit for the future of the winery.
“Thatch is a beautiful facility and they’ve built a strong and loyal brand. My vision is to add to this with my 30 years of knowledge and passion for the Virginia Wine Industry,” Michael Shaps.
On June 27th, we will raise a glass to close out the end of the great Thatch Winery era and toast to new beginnings.
NOW is the time to stock up on all of your favorite Thatch Wine. All of our merchandise and wine will not be carried over to the new ownership, so we will be offering special pricing on bottles and cases.
We want to thank the incredible community who has supported us over the years, our loyal Reserve Club Members and our dedicated Thatch Winery team.
We wish Michael and his team the best for what the future holds under the thatched-roof!
The Thatch Winery Ownership Team
