CHRISTMAS TREE FARM
We are a small family-owned winery in the heart of Spotsylvania County, with a passion for making a variety of wonderful wines for over 20 years. Originally, our log cabin was built by our family and friends, as we started a Christmas tree farm working with the National Forestry Department. The perfectly shaped
White Pine and Norway Spruce trees will be for sell in the months of November and December.
After you pick your tree, come in and warm up next to the fireplace in our tasting room
with a nice warm glass of wine with mulling spices or hot chocolate.
Mike Evans is the wine maker for Mattaponi Winery. His extensive knowledge and passion of
perfection comes from generations of wine makers within his family, which provided him the
exposure to wine. Each new wine experience with the aromas and flavors to the life of art and
science gives him enthusiasm with endless discoveries.
Janette Evans is the Founder of Mattaponi Winery. With the help and gracious support of her family
and friends, the dream became reality. A seven year cancer survivor, she is interested in supporting
the Avon Cancer Foundation with the super fruit wine Mattaponi Winery produces called Tibik-
Kizismin, known as the blueberry wine. She supports the Sierra Club, The Alliance, to save the
Mattaponi River. She helped FACETS' Fundraiser for the homeless in Fairfax County.
Greater challenges and opportunities awaits her as Mattaponi Winery continues to grow.
