University of Virginia Graduate Amy Griffin
About Amy Griffin
Amy Griffin graduated from the University of Virginia in 1998. During her time at the university, she served as a member of the Cavaliers volleyball team. She currently stays involved with the school through her support of the University of Virginia College Foundation as well as the Virginia Athletics Foundation and the Mead Endowment. Most recently, Amy Griffin contributed $5 million to the school to provide for a new track-and-field facility. The school has launched a campaign to raise the additional $14 million needed to complete the project, though the $5 million gift will enable the school to begin construction.
Mrs. Griffin’s professional pursuits include ownership of Oakencroft Farm, an artisan grape juice maker. Amy Griffin and her husband purchased the Charlottesville, Virginia, vineyard and winery and converted it into a grape juice operation in 2009. The ecologically minded owners now produce three natural grape juice varieties: the crisp white Seyval Blanc, the rich and fruity Traminette, and the ed berry-flavored Chambourcin.
