Inspired by Europe’s grand winery estates, Rocky Pond Winery expands into a major destination, complete with a vineyard amphitheater for weddings and concerts. On the horizon is an event pavilion, luxe cave tours, spa and casitas.
DAVID AND MICHELLE DUFENHORST, owners of Rocky Pond Winery, like the way the world looks from a bicycle. The couple spent ten years bike touring through numerous wine regions in Europe with DuVine Cycling and Adventure Tour Co. “The very first trip that got us all jazzed up was Tuscany,” recalls David. “We visited wineries that have been in the same family for 600 years and after that first trip and subsequent ones, Michelle and I decided we needed to come back and find a cool place to create a legacy for our kids.”
