Over 100 Years of History
Junius Lindsay Vineyard is named for owner & grower Michael Zimmerman’s grandfather, Junius Lindsay Zimmerman (left), who started the Zimmerman farm in 1896. He farmed the land until age 90, when it was passed down through each successive generation.
After a career in the Foreign Service, Micheal Zimmerman returned to the family homestead with a dream of transforming the century old Zimmerman farm into a vineyard that would produce fine, old world French style wines. Now a third generation farmer, Zimmerman welcomes guests to his vineyard to share his passion for fine wine, commitment to quality, and love of the local land.
