Who Is Rosemond Vineyards?

Hello there, I'm Valerie Settles, and I own Rosemond Vineyards, LLC. I'm originally from Springfield, MA, but I've been living in Virginia since '99. I've been a bankruptcy paralegal for over twenty years and most recently worked as a bankruptcy trustee's assistant. The wine bug bit me in 2018 when I took some courses at a local winery. It started as a hobby, and I'd use my family and friends as guinea pigs to taste-test my creations. They kept giving me rave reviews, so I decided to take it more seriously. After doing some research and talking to my mentor from Bacchus Winery, I knew I wanted to pursue this passion and find a brick-and-mortar building to perfect my craft. It hasn't been easy, but it's been totally worth it.

Winemaking is a real challenge, but I'm up for it. My ultimate goal is to own a wine truck, craft amazing wines, and provide a chill space for people to come together to, sip, relax, and enjoy.
