Classy 19th hole: Golf community features winery, Rees Jones course

        I stopped yesterday at Viniterra, a unique golf community halfway between Richmond and Williamsburg, VA, less than two miles from Interstate 64.  It is unique in that a working winery, as well as a sleek Rees Jones golf course, is on property and managed by the developer.  My tour included a stop in the wine tasting room, a well appointed, neat-as-a-pin spot at the entrance to the community, whose exterior features reclaimed wood and bricks that pre-date the Civil War.  In just its first few years, the winery has picked up awards for its toothsome whites.  In the absence of a clubhouse -- construction begins soon -- the tasting room and its porch serves as a splendid 19th hole.

        I’ll have more to say in this space soon about Viniterra, its golf properties for sale and it golf course.


Some grape plantings bump up against the Rees Jones golf course at Viniterra.

This blog was conceived and is published by me, Larry Gavrich, a former corporate communications executive who founded HomeOnTheCourse, LLC, in 2005.  Our firm advises baby boomers and others seeking a lifestyle in which golf is a major component.  My wife Connie and I own a home in Connecticut (not on a golf course) and a condo at Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, SC, on a Jack Nicklaus layout.  We began our search for our home on the course more than 15 years ago, and the challenges of the search inspired me to research golf communities and write objective reviews of them.
