About Josephine Silvey
Thomas and Josephine are the owners. Tom is a retired engineer who worked for Westinghouse (later merged with Siemens). Josephine is of German descent but born and raised in France until the age of 15. She is now an American citizen. Both retired from corporate careers they decided to buy this property for a weekend home. When discussing the future cottage they were going to build, Josephine stated that she would like a couple of row of grapevines to remind her of her native France. Tom google where to buy grapevines and stumbled on a seminar that was all about vineyards and everything you wanted to know about viticulture and enology. When Tom left the seminar he had stars in his eyes and Josephine knew something was up, The vineyard dream was born. Now 17 years later we are a full resort with the vineyards, wine tasting room and restaurant, vacation rentals and event venues. Voila!
Why Josephine Silvey chose Traphill
This property is gorgeous, with beautiful scenery all around, the majestic Raoring River that flows down from Stone Mountain State Park. This is the site of the two historical Brewer mills that were destroyed during the June 1940 one-hundred year flood event. The dam was destroyed moving tons of silt over the gristmill and sawmill machinery. The mills never operated again. The gristmill is located below our new wine tasting room and Chez Josephine Restaurant. The stacked stone columns that can be seen across the river are the remains of the sawmill. The miller's cabin is still standing and we are in the process of remodeling it as another rental unit. (perhaps end of 2019?). Our property is part of the Stone Mountain mountain range (Stone Mountain state Park is just 10 minutes away). The lodge overlooks the Roaring River with a wrap-around covered porch that has a great view of the river and other buildings on the property. It is well appointed with upscale furnishings with a mountain look (not primitive!). The kitchen is well appointed, and the decor is very charming part mountain with a bit of French flair. The landscaping is beautiful all over the property.
