Vineyard Management Services
To better serve our contract winemaking clients and cultivate high quality fruit, we partner with Vineyard Management Services. Through VMS, our vineyard manager is available to oversee all aspects of vineyard work from planting to picking--and everything in between.
Jake Busching, Vineyard Manager
Jake joined the Wineworks team in July 2015 with a wealth of experience and an outstanding reputation in the Virginia wine industry. Growing up on a Midwestern farm prepared Jake for the agricultural aspects of the wine industry and learning the trade from Michael and viticulturist Chris Hill launched him on a path of high-end Virginia viticulture and winemaking. Jake believes in soil-to-bottle wine growing and has brought that focus to bear at wineries like Keswick Vineyards, Pollak Vineyards, Grace Estate Winery, and now Michael Shaps Wineworks. Jake sits on the board of the Monticello Wine Trail and serves on the Research and Education Committee for the Virginia Vineyards Association as well.
