The popular winery Veritas in Afton, Virginia has honored Hugh Jacobsen by naming its new merlot vineyard after the architect who originally designed a house on the site in 1981. Andrew and Patricia Hodson, who are long admirer's of Jacobsen, bought the house originally called "Sadleback" and refurbished it with a few tips from Simon Jacobsen.
The 20 acres of new vineyard will be planted in the spring of 2015.
