In August of 2016, Stan Joynes and Paul Krackman talked to a large breakfast crowd about the challenges and fun of leaving long careers in business and law to own and operate a vineyard. Soon after that, we were posting a note that one of their wines had won a coveted Governor’s Cup Gold Medal. Now we are posting about a major story about their personal and business success as they approach their 2nd Anniversary.
When we called to congratulate them, they asked us to let everyone know about the weekend anniversary celebration they had planned for August 17-19. It combines a visit to their vineyard for a private tasting a two-night stay at Downtown Staunton's newest luxury boutique hotel, The Blackburn Inn. The Blackburn is the old Western State Hospital which was redeveloped by Richmond's own Robin Miller.
