Hours: Year Round
Gauthier Vineyard, LLC, is a family-owned working farm, equestrian center, vineyard and winery located in scenic New Kent County near the intersection of the Lafayette and Washington-Rochambeau trails to Yorktown. The owners, Mo and Sandi Gauthier, both retired Navy Captains, purchased their "Fair Winds" farm in 2010. Like most ground in the county, the farm is rich in history. Local relic hunters have validated its service as a Civil War encampment for both Union and Confederate forces during the lengthy Peninsula Campaign.
The Gauthier's built their state-of-the art equestrian center in 2011. The equestrian center offers boarding, training, lessons, clinics and competitive events. We are pleased to have Arleen Hensley, international and ApHC show judge, relocate from North Carolina to spearhead establishing the center. Her newly formed 2013 Junior Hensley Show Horse team won numerous awards during their first year of competition. Arleen has over thirty years of experience breeding, training and showing championship appaloosa, paint, and quarter horses in numerous equestrian disciplines.
