Aubrey Vineyards Company Information
- United States
The year 2010 marked the acquisition of approximately 200 acres in southern Overland Park, Johnson County, Kansas, right near the state line. Much of the land was and still is being used by crop and livestock farmers. On the way back from a trip to Napa, a local Johnson County family realized the land could also be used to grow grapes and produce wine. In 2012, vines were planted and grapes began to grow, establishing Aubrey Vineyards as the first winery in Overland Park. The vines are planted on land with the highest elevations around them and contain gentle slopes of fertile, loamy soil low in clay content, which is the perfect environment for grapevines. The high location affords breezes on most days, which helps ward off vine diseases. Slopes with porous loam keep the soil well-drained.
