Dinner at Upper Shirley Vineyards

A passion for fine wine and sustainable working lands drove Tayloe and Suzy Dameron to open Upper Shirley Vineyards, a state-of-the-art winery in the cradle of American history. The vineyards are nestled alongside the gently flowing James River with breathtaking views of the Presquile National Wildlife Refuge, a 1,329-acre island bird sanctuary.

Upper Vineyards neighbor Shirley Plantation, which dates to 1613, is a National Historic Landmark and the country’s oldest working farm. Upper Shirley Vineyards welcomes guests to its beautiful 14,000-square-foot Low Country winery to taste its wines, enjoy Chef Carlisle Bannister’s fine Southern cooking and celebrate life in the warm embrace of Tidewater Virginia.
