The Vineyard

Finding Home at “The Junction”

Woodbine Farm and Vineyards is nestled along the shoreline of Buggs Island Lake in southern Virginia. Dr. Reggie Young and his wife Jenny moved to Clarksville in 1978 with the hopes of establishing a dental practice in the quaint waterside town of Clarksville.

Prior to 1986 the Youngs’ had been residing on the lake in Conifer Cove and boarding their horses in a tobacco barn owned by Dr. Gerald Burnett. During that time, they had been looking for a farm where they could care for their horses and raise a family. In the fall of 1986 Woodbine Farm became available. The farm was perfectly situated on Buffalo Creek hosting three beautiful barns equipped with electricity and automatic waterers. The barns, the location, and the history of the property was all that the Youngs needed to pursue the property. Algie and Alease Talbott closed on the property October 31,1986. Within a month, Reggie and Jenny had gone from Lake Life to Farm Life. They were now residents of “The Junction”.

Start of a Winery

Over the next 20 years Woodbine provided a wonderful sanctuary to raise their children, breed some horses, and enjoy the sport of skeet shooting. Life in the country was enjoyed by friends and family. As the years unfolded, the children grew up and off to college they went. As time went by Reggie kept talking and dreaming of planting grapes at Woodbine and establishing a vineyard. Little did he know his vineyard dream would become a reality and a family affair would come to fruition in 2015. That was seven years ago and the rest is history.

Who We Are

Reggie Young

Reggie’s first passion has been dentistry. He has practiced dentistry in Clarksville since 1978 and has enjoyed developing his craft of creating beautiful smiles over the last 44 years. He has always been on the cutting edge in dentistry by staying up to date with the newest technology. He obtained his FAGD and MAGD in his chosen field. A Master in the Academy of General Dentistry means he has completed a structured and demanding set of requirements. To attain the MAGD he first had to become a Fellow in the FAGD which requires 500 continuing dental education credit hours. He then had to earn an additional 600 approved continuing educational hours including 400 hours of hands on courses. Finally, he had to pass a final exam. Only 1% of dentists in the US have achieved this designation.

Reggie has always had a dream of planting a vineyard on the other side of Woodbine. The stars seemed to line up when Patrick returned home and they came up with a plan on developing and planting a vineyard. Reggie has spent many hours laying out and designing the vineyard. Understanding the importance of precision vineyard planting, Reggie and Patrick contracted with Tim Hosmer & Benchmark Custom Vineyard Planters and planted their first 10,000 vines in 2018.

Come meet him at “The Barn” where he will be happy to provide you with a friendly smile and a flight of WBV wines.

Patrick Young

Patrick is a native of Southern Virginia who grew up in Buffalo Junction. He is now the Vineyard Manager and Winemaker at his family’s farm, Woodbine Vineyards. Patrick graduated from Hampden-Sydney College and not sure what path to take, he enrolled in some viticulture classes at Piedmont Community College. He also wanted to learn more about the Virginia wine industry and attended meetings hosted by the Virginia Vineyards Association.

At one of those VVA meetings, a great opportunity presented itself when Patrick met Justin Rose. Rose is the vintner at Rosemont of Virginia located in LaCrosse Virginia. They struck up a friendship and Justin offered him a working internship at Rosemont Vineyards. Patrick worked side by side with Rose learning the technicalities and fine points of winemaking. “The experience and time spent at Rosemont was a great investment, and Justin was a great mentor.”

Along with learning the art of wine making, there was much to do and learn about becoming a vineyard manager. Working with Justin’s father, Stephen Rose, he learned the importance of high-quality farming. Stephen shared his knowledge of how to improve grape production by spending time attending to the vineyard as well as the grapes. “Preparing the land and selecting the first varietals are paramount to having great fruit.”

Patrick has been involved in all aspects of developing and creating the vineyard at Woodbine. Over a three-year period, he focused on preparing the land to be transformed into a vineyard. He was tasked with testing the soil for chemical composition and preparing the soil for augmentation as recommended by Virginia Tech. He tested the soil for nutrients by using a backhoe and dug over twenty, five-foot pits. He gathered samples and sent them to Virginia Tech. After receiving the analysis and recommendations he augmented the soil and ripped the land. By the end of this three-year period, he was ready to plant the vineyard. Patience and perseverance lead to the first 10,000 plants being planted in 2018.

When not working in the vineyard or winery, Patrick enjoys spending time with his two daughters, Peyton and Lexi. They both enjoy playing in wide open spaces and roaming the vineyard.
