Owner & Operator
Dr. Denis Nekipelov
My husband & I moved to Virginia 40 years ago. We fell in love with the natural beauty & history of the Charlottesville area and raised our family here. A few years later we discovered the Monticello AVA! There is so much great wine in this area and I’m so glad to be pouring some of the best of it at Montifalco. This is a unique, small vineyard experience. I invite you to relax at the winemaker’s home overlooking the vineyard and enjoy a glass (or two!)
My family and I moved to the Piedmont area in 1998. Shortly after, my husband and I began exploring the local wineries. My appreciation for good wine resulted in 10 years of employment in the industry and I have learned so much. Wine is a beautiful harmony of nature, art and science and those three components are combined flawlessly at Montifalco Vineyard. I am thrilled to be part of the Montifalco family where their passion and commitment to producing superior wines is unsurpassed.
