It all started with homemade witch costumes, a Polaroid picture, and a dream.
Marvin Jefferson dreamed of starting his own vineyard and knew if this dream became a reality he would name it 2 Witches, after his daughters Julie and Andrea. A few decades later (who’s counting), 2 Witches Vineyard became a reality.
While the family was debating the decision to start the farm winery at the vineyard location in Pittsylvania County, Ethan and Julie Brown had been visiting small urban wineries and breweries in North Carolina. The idea for 2 Witches Winery and Brewing Company was born, placing the farm winery and nano brewery within the city limits of Danville, Virginia. This will be the first co-located(under one roof) winery and brewery in Virginia.
Marvin and his wife, Caren, maintain the vineyard. Ethan and Julie operate the winery and brewery, with Ethan serving as the Head Brewer. Their son, Alex, assists with the brewing and is pursuing his degree in Brewing Science from Rockingham Community College. Their youngest son, Tim, helps out when he’s not busy with the Tunstall Band or playing paintball.
