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.

When a ticketed event is not being held, feel free to bring your dog(s).
Please assist us in keeping our vineyard beautiful by cleaning up waste promptly. Thank you.
Rascal the vineyard dog
While you may not see Rascal at the vineyard very often these days (he's enjoying his retirement), our young friend Jackson can frequently be found in the tasting room and on the patio while his person assists guests in the tasting room.
Jackson Brown loves coming to work at Barren Ridge Vineyards with tasting room staff member Jahana.
