Valley Vineyards was founded by Kenneth G. Schuchter in 1970, the year after he planted 20 acres of wine grapes on his property. The first Valley Vineyards Wine Festival in 1971 drew 10,000 attendees. Schuchter died in 2016 and today the second and third generation of his family are involved in the winery.
