Meet the Team

The Weatherly Family

Our owners, The Weatherly Family (Cierra & Michael w/children Sienna & Mylan and their cute little Boston Terrier Mia) have been longtime residents of neighboring Nelson County and now split time between Virginia Beach (and our farm winery in Rockbridge). The family enjoys travel and has been to Europe every year since 2005 and loves all things European. When the COVID lockdown halted their international travel, they began searching for land and adventure in the mountains and discovered our farm at Skyline Meadows.  When the Weatherly’s saw the farm, they knew this was like that final piece of Europe, here at home, tucked away quietly and peacefully in our very own Shenandoah Valley. Most days they are head down working diligently on the property to prepare future award winning wines and an overall amazing customer experience for our guests. Feel free to say hi if you see them out and about!
