Michael Shaps wines are small production wines made from grapes grown under Michael’s supervision, with a reputation for quality that ranks on an international scale – proof that Virginia can produce wines that compete head-to-head with some of the finest wines from the best regions in the wine world.

In addition to wining the prestigious Governor’s Cup wine competition, Michael Shaps wines have earned gold medals in several competitions and have been written up in publications such as Saveur, Wine Spectator, Wine Advocate, Washingtonian, The Washington Post and many others.

The Roosevelt is a neighborhood restaurant in a turn-of-the-last-century building in Church Hill, Richmond’s oldest neighborhood. Our food is an untraditional celebration of the food of the South, served alongside an all-Virginia wine list, a hearty roster of regional beers, and a selection of craft cocktails that’ll knock your socks off.

The Roosevelt opened in Richmond, Virginia, in July 2011, to public and critical acclaim. The Roosevelt was named 2012 Restaurant of the Year by Style Magazine, Best New Restaurant in the Region by Richmond Magazine and awarded an Elby as the city’s Best New Restaurant. The Roosevelt was again awarded Elbys in 2013 for Best Cocktail Program (Thomas “T” Leggett), and in 2014 for Restaurant of the Year and Chef of the Year (Lee Gregory).

James Beard nominee and StarChef Rising Star Lee Gregory, chef and co-owner, worked under chef Dale Reitzer at Acacia in Richmond, Virginia, for five years before moving to Six Burner (Richmond), Mockingbird in Staunton, and Blue Light Grill in Charlottesville. He returned to RVA in 2011 to open The Roosevelt. Gregory opened Southbound, a partnership with Joe Sparatta of Heritage, in November 2014.

In addition to The Roosevelt, Kendra Feather owns 2 other restaurants and a bakery in Richmond, Virginia. Feather opened Ipanema Cafe in 1998. Garnett’s Cafe followed in 2009, and WPA Bakery with David Rohrer in November 2012. She was named Restaurateur of the Year by Richmond Magazine in 2013.
