Come experience this intimate, highly focused venture nestled on a beautifully wooded mountainside.

Arterra Wines and Hawkmoth Arts is a cutting edge new winery and

Gallery located in the heart of the Virginia Wine Region. Owners Jason

Murray and Sandy Gray-Murray are a husband and wife team who have
combined their passions under one roof. Come experience this intimate,
highly focused venture nestled on a beautifully wooded mountainside.

At the core of the wine making and the studio practice is the
expression of authenticity, creativity and connectedness with land and

The Winery produces wines with true distinction, emphasizing all

Virginia has to offer. We coin the phrase “Authentic Virginia” because

our wines are made using Native Yeast Fermentations which truly express

Terroir in a way that no other process can. Our wines are created with a

minimalist mindset in order to guarantee the fruit is what you truly

experience. We are a non-conventional winery and value the customer who

appreciates the effort we put into creating an experience based on

integrity, craftsmanship and authenticity.

The Wine and the Artwork is created with the basic principles defining WABI SABI:

Reverence for Authenticity and Earthiness, Appreciation of the genuine
integrity of natural objects and processes, Seeing beauty in
impermanence, transience and non-perfection.

Each and every artwork is hand made with great care and precision. There
is a great amount of time and attention given to the detail and overall
aesthetic of each piece.

The work is largely inspired by the vineyard and winery. Most of the
leaves are hand picked from our vineyards, others come from our property
or surrounding area. Each one is hand selected for its shape and size.
They are hand cut and hand crafted into a variety of bowls, trays, and
hanging pieces. You will also see pieces of wine barrel, tendrils and
canes from the vines and other wine related imagery.

In addition to wine inspired work, Hawkmoth Arts has an overall
naturalistic, rustic, yet delicate style where multiple themes of
nature, spirituality, and memory overlap.

The process of creating the work involves a dedicated studio practice
filled with experimentation and exploration. Creativity is essential to
the work and the artwork is continuously evolving.
