Roseland Polo at King Family Vineyard

Every tradition has a beginning, including Roseland Polo at King Family Vineyards near Charlottesville, and it’s no exception for the ancient sport of polo. Tracing its origin back to ancient Persia (now Iran) sometime between 600 BC and 100 AD, this sport for man and horse is played worldwide with the majority of clubs being found in the United States, Argentina, India and Western Europe. It is often associated as the sport of royalty the world over, but most famously played by the men of the British royal family. In the U.S., however, polo has been iconized by the high-end designer, Ralph Lauren and Nacho Figueras, a world-renowned Argentine polo player and fashion model with Ralph Lauren. In Charlottesville, polo matches can be found just west of town under the leadership of the King family.  The Roseland Polo club, located at the family’s vineyard, King Family Vineyards near Crozet, holds matches each Sunday from June through mid-October. Each weekly match draws several hundred spectators, some who dress up in high-society fashion and some who enjoy the matches in jeans and shorts (no dress code is required).  read more
