About Ecco Adesso Vineyards

Ecco Adesso Vineyards at Skyline Meadows Farm is a family-owned estate winery in Fairfield, VA, nestled perfectly between the Blue Ridge & Appalachian Mountains in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley wine country. Our unique property is just shy of 350 stunning acres encompassing springs, meadows, gardens, vineyards, waterfalls, hiking trails, orchards, creeks, meadows, and protected forests.

Ecco Adesso (“Here Now” in Italian) is not just a phrase or a saying, it is a way of life, and one that the owners (the Weatherly Family) live by. When our guests visit Ecco Adesso, we want them to leave all their troubles at the gate and enjoy their family, friends and all that nature has to offer.

At Ecco Adesso, we hope to inspire our guests to adopt our mindset. We do not think about the troubles from the past, or the worries of the future, we live Ecco…Adesso…Nel Momento – Here…Now…In the Moment.

We encourage you to slow down, enjoy life and come visit us to see what the Ecco Adesso lifestyle is all about.

Ecco Adesso Farm

The Farm

Skyline Meadows offers guests 150 acres of open rolling hills, multiple orchards, Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountain views, 200 acres of hiking trails, springs, lush vegetation with various microclimates, creeks and bubbling waterfalls.

We are home to a non-profit garden that is run by our nation’s Veterans called “Vet First, Inc.” Vet First, a vision of the Weatherly Family, hires Veterans to grow crops to give back locally to other Vets, the homeless, food banks and those without food. 100% of what we grow on site in the garden goes to support our Veterans and those in need. The nonprofit, farm and vineyard all work in perfect symbiosis.

We also partner with local businesses in the Shenandoah Valley to offer our guests complimentary products that are locally farmed and sourced, right here near our home.

Stay tuned because the Weatherly Family has future plans for chickens, baby doll sheep and eventually horses.

Vineyard & Winemaking

Our original vineyard (10+ years old) was planted by the previous owners and is divided into two .5 acre plots. The first vineyard skirts the driveway as you make your way up and down the rolling hills on the approach to the Chateau. The second is hidden and tucked away behind a tree line as the property slopes downhill towards our forest and hiking trails. The outer trellis posts rise high into the skyline and are built from old train ties. Varietals include Chardonnay, Norton and Cab Franc. These grapes will be harvested this year and blended to produce our very first Ecco Adesso Wines. We are also using the old vineyards as a test bed for other varietals and new age ways of wine making.

For our initial wines, we are collaborating with Shenandoah winemaking local legends to show the world what the Valley truly has to offer. Our winemakers focus on quality over quantity and blend old world concepts and techniques with cutting edge technology and wine making processes.
