Floyd Polk Rememberance - 1923-2009

Floyd Polk passed away on Thursday, December 3, 2009. From the employees at Shenandoah Vineyards who knew and worked with Floyd, we miss him. As much as the vines and trellis posts stately standing in the vineyard, Floyd could be seen working between them, among them. He was part of the landscape. After his retirement, and especially now after his passing, there is an unfilled space in the vineyard; vines tilt reverently toward where he once stood. Floyd was the embodiment of a proud, tireless work ethic. We will not forget his figure in the landscape, and the vineyard he once tended still bears sweet fruit.
