David & Ellen King
Ellen, from Houston, Texas and David, from Abilene, Texas, met at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas and were married in 1977. Law school, a law practice and three growing boys kept the Kings busy until their move to Crozet in 1996. Ellen enjoys gardening and the outdoors and helped put in the original vineyard plantings. She can often be found helping customers in the Tasting Room while providing her authentic southern hospitality. She is also enjoying her more recent role as a grandmother of seven; she is known to them as "E". David put in all of the original vineyard and is currently helping his sons Carrington, Stuart and James along with Martin Powley, Ray Wyant and Tristan Campbell to add to the vineyard acreage. David's hobbies include flying and of course, polo. He is also enjoying spending time with his grandchildren who call him “D”. David & Ellen are now the proud grandparents of seven grandchildren.
