Our Tasting Room

We believe that wine tasting should be a great experience — in a great location. So we have designed our new tasting room to maximize the views, with a cathedral ceiling window wall looking straight out to the mountains of Shenandoah National Park. Our shaded side patio overlooks our mountain stream and vineyards. Inside, we have a fireplace and comfy chairs for those cold or rainy days. Our beautiful flooring and bar are made from reclaimed local hardwoods, including nearly 100-year-old oak boards we “harvested” from barns on our property. Locally based Mountain Lumber Co. worked with us on this great project.

It’s not just our vines that use the great sunlight at our property. We have installed a rooftop solar panel system for our tasting room and winery operations, making us the first solar-powered winery in Virginia.  Urban Grid Solar in Richmond, a leader in the field, designed and installed it for us.  Green Grapes - Green Power as the local TV station dubbed it in their recent story.

Our facilities are a perfect choice for weddings, family reunions, offsite corporate events, parties and teambuilding and related functions.  Our events brochure will give you a good overview.

Good wine deserves good food — and vice versa. So we offer a range of excellent cheeses, meats, crackers, chocolates, water and related foods to accompany the wines. All our providers are local farms and small businesses in the area, each of whom offers the highest quality products and further enhances your Madison County experience.
