About Rebecca Plott
Josephine speaking: I was born in France of German parents, and moved to the States when I was 15 years. Graduated from San Jose State University with BS in Business Administration, with a concentration in accounting and a minor in economics. I worked for IBM for 17 years, and was transferred about every 3 years to a new location, including oversees assignment in Tokyo, Japan for 3 years. After that, I worked in Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) at First Union Bank (now Wells Fargo Bank). My husband Tom and I live on our NC Vineyards. Tom Speaking: I am from Harriman, TN and grew up on my beloved mountains, overlooking a beautiful lake. I graduated from Le Tourneau University with an Engineering degree, and have been working for Westinghouse which later became Siemens. I had to work on numerous projects which required extensive travel abroad (China, Japan and in Europe). I developed a taste for traveling and was happy that Josephine loves traveling as well. Josephine and I met in Charlotte and got married in 1993. Both of us were married before so we blended our children into our new family (Josephine‘s daughter and my two daughters and son). We are now empty-nesters, but the family keeps growing with the addition of grandchildren, three grandsons, one grand-daughter, and another on the way! Since acquiring the vineyard, we have traveled extensively to wine growing regions to develop our knowledge of viticulture and enology. Our knowledge must include best practices used, not only in our region, but also in other parts of the world.
Why Rebecca Plott chose Traphill
The setting of this property is gorgeous and reminiscent of picturesque French hillsidevineyards situated on the slopes of a river. We knew we had a gem, and soon after the dream was born. We wanted others to discover what we had found, an area rich in history, of moonshine and NASCAR, close to Stone Mountain State Park, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and dotted with many wineries along the NC Wine Route. People come here from all over to enjoy the foliage in fall, to hike, fish, hunt, and partake of all the things the region has to offer.
What makes this Lodge unique
You have the opportunity to stay in an upscale apartment on a private riverside vineyard estate. You enter the property through an elegant entrance, with two fishing ponds on each side, and see the vineyard going up the slope. You drive to the lodgings situated on the bank, literally just feet away of the Roaring River. The two-story home has a wrap-around porch on each level that offers great views of the river, the grist-mill ruins, 'The Gathering Place' with its indoor-outdoor fireplace available to groups with multiple rentals. The beauty of the setting slowly registers with you, as you take in the view. You hear the sounds of the river cascading over large boulders, and the next thing you know you’re fishing and hoping to catch that “prize winning” trout. If fishing does not suit you, you can opt to relax on the sandy beach further down river, catch-up on some reading, cool-off in the water or picnic in the vineyards. Nature lovers will enjoy the sightings of the abundant wildlife. You can chose to relax or engage in as many activities as the region has to offer, it’s up to you! One of the benefits of being on a private estate is that you can fish on our private ponds year-round without a license. We also allow bow-hunting on our grounds. For those of you “wannabe” grape-growers, you can pick the grapes at harvest time or help crush grapes. We are open to that! Who knows, there may be a budding winemaker among you! There are many attractions on the estate, and around the region to have you coming back time after time.
