|How We Got Into Winemaking|
Carl Flemer Jr., the founder of Ingleside Nurseries, began making his own wine in the 1970’s. At that time he started purchasing grapes to expand his winemaking skills. This is when he and his son, Doug, began seriously looking into growing grapes. During those early years, Ingleside Vineyards and Winery was born and Doug and his dad began the ambitious - and some say crazy - adventure to build vineyards and a winery in Virginia’s Northern Neck.
At the time of Ingleside’s incorporation, Ingleside was one of the initial six wineries in the state of Virginia. Carl is still the chairman of Ingleside Plantation, Inc., which consists of Ingleside Vineyards and Ingleside Nurseries. He takes great pride in his heritage of being one of Virginia’s first wine pioneers.
