Hours: Year Round
The land at Keswick Vineyards was part of the original 1727 Nicholas Meriwether Crown Grant that comprised nearly 18,000 acres on the east side of the Southwest Mountains. George Barclay Rives, a direct descendent of the original grantee, built the current residence in 1911 and named it Edgewood Estate.
The property was the site of two important historical events: one during the Revolutionary War and the other during the Civil War. On June 4, 1781, Captain Jack Jouett rode 40 miles through the night to warn then-Virginia Governor Thomas Jefferson and the Virginia Legislature of the approach of British troops led by Colonel Banastre Tarleton.
