Instructor: Skip Causey, Owner of Potomac Point Winery and Vineyard
The owners, Skip and Cindi Causey, are Widewater residents who had a dream of opening up their winery. Dream talk, their daughter called it. The Causeys trace their interest back to the early 1990s when they started visiting wineries in the Napa Valley and Sonoma regions of California. They based Potomac Point Vineyard and Winery on multiple Mediterranean cultures, Italian, French, Spanish as well as American – specifically Napa and New Orleans.
Skip and Cindi is proud to offer their current vintages as well as future pressings that will be coming.
