Tinder Cattle & Vineyard And Viticultural Services

As a 1995 graduate of Virginia Tech, Carl Tinder began managing Adventure Farm in Earlysville for Mary Jane Chisholm. Encouraged by Felicia Rogan of Oakencroft Vineyard & Winery, he began planting a few vines in 2005, and his love of viticulture blossomed. After serving as a vine-growing consultant to Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards in 2010, Tinder began offering consultations to other vineyards. In 2014, he started operating as Tinder Cattle & Vineyard, a full-service vineyard management company that’s now planted over 275,000 vines. In 2019, his harvest service picked and delivered over 400 tons of fruit to multiple wineries, lending significant flavors to some of the region’s most expressive wines.
