The Domain: The Jordan family and friends planted their first vineyard in 2007 at Mount Airy Farm in Fort Defiance, Virginia. Midland Construction was originally the name of Ted Jordan's carpentry business, founded in the 70s. In 2016 he passed the vineyard project to his three sons: Ben, Gray, and Tim, who operate as grape growers and wine producers today. The name Midland acknowledges the work they do with their hands and backs, building a family wine business on the ridges and hillsides in the middle lands of the Shenandoah Valley.

In this age of the digital race for attention, Midland is a quiet exercise of focus and quality of technique. Our hope is that in the pursuit of good work, there’s an audience to sustain a venture such as ours. This is not a five-year plan. These are the first years of a family business designed to follow generations into the future.

Therefore, our approach to winegrowing is progressive yet precise, and we hope to walk the line between skillful and unexpected. Our wines will evolve over time as we learn more, as the world changes, and as we change. These offerings represent the work of our hands, and of past hands, building for longevity, so that future hands may continue and improve upon this work.
