About Us

The owners, Skip and Cindi Causey, are locals who had a dream of opening their own winery. The Causeys trace their interest back to the early 1990s when they started visiting wineries in the Napa Valley and Sonoma regions of California. “Dream talk” is what the owner’s family coined their discussions of owning a future winery. They based the design of Potomac Point on multiple Mediterranean cultures, Italian, French, Spanish as well as American – specifically Napa and New Orleans. Skip and Cindi planted their first grapes in 2006 and opened the winery’s doors in 2007.
