It started with a dream to make wine. Yvan, a builder, an academic, and a farm boy at heart wanted to grow grapes and blend the art and science of making wine. The Beliveau Farm was purchased in 2001, the first grapes planted in 2009, the first wine produced in 2011 with the winery opening in May 2012.
Joyce has always had a passion for lavender. This incredible herb was planted in 2005 and their first Lavender Festival was held in 2008, now a highly anticipated event in Southwest Virginia.
They opened their Bed and Breakfast in 2007 and held the first of many weddings in their newly constructed Event Building.
Today, with well over 100 medals for their crafted wines and with their business being known as a significant event and wedding venue, Yvan and Joyce have decided to grow the next iteration of their business by adding an on-site brewery.
The 165 acres originally overgrown with brush, and a 1900’s farmhouse once used as a barn, have been transformed into the magic of what today is called the Beliveau Farm Estate. Joyce and Yvan invite you to visit this incredible place.
