Our Vintners

Vintner

It was Sharon Roeder’s dream to grow grapes and to make wine that gave birth to Barrel Oak. Her background was in international affairs with a Master’s degree from Georgetown.  But the path sent her in a surprising direction and she realized that she wanted out of the rat race.  Once the decision was made she began interning in 2006 at the surrounding Fauquier wineries as a cellar rat, reading the literature, and taking local classes.  In 2007 she assisted with producing Barrel Oak’s first vintage and in 2008 she manged her first harvest and vintage.  In the years since she has never looked back, producing over 100 gold medal wines and living her dream to the fullest.
