Michael Shaps
United States, Virginia

Founded in 2007, Michael Shaps creates complex wines with careful attention to the details of fine wine production in a traditional old-world style.   They use natural yeast and the wines spend a significant amount of time in barrel prior to release.  


Michael Shaps wines are small production wines made from grapes grown under Michael’s supervision. Michael has a reputation for quality that ranks on an international scale with some of the world’s best winemakers.  


The whites focus on varietal intensity and the retention of natural acidity.


The reds are highly extracted and crafted to be age-worthy and require cellaring.


Michael strongly believes in choosing grape varieties that represent the potential of Virginia viticulture.   Michael’s wines prove that Virginia can produce wines that compete head to head with some of the finest wines from the best regions in the wine world.
