Tasting Room

The Tasting Room

WE ARE NOW OFFERING FLIGHTS! Click below for our current flight lineup.

 

About our Wine:

Grapes are a reflection of the earth. They change dramatically depending on their environment: what side of the hill they grow on and even the people's character who grow them.

Our wine exhibits the ancient mineral-rich soils of the Shenandoah Valley. We don’t try to replicate any other wine. We take advantage of what’s in the soil and cultivate the flavor that is possible here. This results in crispness to our wine, an elegant, more austere wine that is a pure reflection of the soil.

The Tasting Room:

Step into our transformed apple packing barn for wine tasting. The rustic and cozy tasting room features the original ceiling and a large stone wood-burning fireplace. The bar is made of reclaimed wood from the original barn. The wines on our tasting list rotate with availability and always feature a diverse selection of whites and reds, both dry and sweet. Flights are offered and rotated every week.

Tasting Hours:

Please call first to place your order.
