Bogaty Family Wine
First Vines Planted
Jim & Della Bogaty plant the first grapevines on their farm estate near the town of Berryville, Virginia, a few hundred meters from the Shenandoah River. Since then, the estate vineyards at Veramar have grown to include about 25 acres under vine.
Veramar Vineyard Opens
The Bogaty family's first winery, Veramar Vineyard, opens at their Berryville farm estate as the 67th winery in Virginia.
Justin Bogaty becomes Winemaker
Justin Bogaty, Jim & Della's son, leaves the corporate world to earn a certification in oenology from UC Davis and become the Bogaty family's winemaker. Since then, his wines have received international recognition and numerous awards, including forty ratings of 85 points or higher from Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
Bogati Winery Opens
After the family took a trip to Argentina's wine country, they were so inspired by the wine and the culture that they resolved to open a winery to capture that country's character and essence. Bogati Bodega & Winery opens as the product of that vision.
Chardonnay Rated 90 Points
2013 Black Label Chardonnay from Bogati earns a 90-point rating from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. The publication lauds the wine's ``fresh feel and a crisp edge, with ``plenty to recommend it,`` calling it ``impressive.``
