This was a comment made by one of our first customers. He was right, you would not expect to find such good wine on a working farm and sold out of an old barn. But what we lack in grand buildings we make up for with excellent wine, great service and a relaxing country atmosphere.
If you judge wine by the curb appeal of the building it is sold from, then we are probably not for you. But if quality Virginia wine and down to earth, wine loving people are what appeals to you then we may be what you are looking for.
Our wines have been critically acclaimed and have won awards in state, regional, national and international competition. We offer the finest in dry, french style Virginia wines. Come chat with the owners about wine, do a tasting and enjoy our quiet, relaxing atmosphere and pastoral views. We encourage you to bring food, we have tables both inside and out. There are open meadows to relax in, or grab a table in the vineyard. It's the perfect way to wind down from the stress of the work week.
They don't call us the Picnic Winery for nothing!
