We produce wines made from Virginia grapes under both the Michael Shaps label and the Michael Shaps Wineworks label. Visit us at our original tasting room, Michael Shaps Wineworks, or our second tasting room, Wineworks Extended. Founded in 2007, we create complex wines with careful attention to the details of fine wine production in a traditional old-world style. We use natural yeast and our wines spend a significant amount of time in barrel prior to release. As an independent winery, we focus on quality, refined small-batch production. Our winery site is nestled in the woods South of Charlottesville, and we are all devoted to the craft of winemaking. Michael Shaps wines are small production wines made from grapes grown under Michael’s supervision. Michael has a reputation for quality that ranks on an international scale with some of the world’s best winemakers.
