In 2014, Gabriele Rausse Winery leased 16 acres of land on the historic Redlands Farm above the Hardware River near Carter’s Bridge. Although most of the vineyard is dedicated to growing grapes exclusively for wine, in 2016 Gabriele decided to plant Chasselas Doré. The variety is among the first that Jefferson attempted to grow at Monticello, and is prized as a table grape around the world. It is also grown extensively in Switzerland to produce wine. Local Food Hub is excited to feature this unique variety of grape as a table grape.
