Magnolia Vineyards

Magnolia Vineyards

We came across this winery by accident in 2015 while taking a wander in the Virginia countryside. The tasting room interior appeared to be under construction back then and it still has that look. The owners are planning a new, nearby stand-alone tasting room.

Morais Vineyards & Winery

Morais Vineyards & Winery

Morais Vineyards & Winery has one of the most attractive tasting rooms we have been to. The large circular tasting bar sits in the center of the room under a high, vaulted ceiling. This area is surrounded by tables and chairs both inside and outside the tasting room.

Granite Heights Winery

Granite Heights Winery

The property gives every appearance of a working farm and the tasting room is located in a barely converted farm house that dates back to the 1800s. Inside, the winery conducts seated tastings only at tables scattered between several rooms.

Gray Ghost Vineyards

Gray Ghost Vineyards

Surrounded by their vineyard and a very short drive from the main road, you will find their tasting room. The winery is named for the Confederate partisan raider, John S. Mosby, who operated in the area during the American Civil War.

Little Washington Winery

Little Washington Winery

Traversing a steep, bumpy, gravel road leads you to limited angled parking under shade trees near the tasting room. Little Washington Winery has upgraded their steps leading up a short hill to the rear of the converted home used as their tasting room.

Unicorn Winery

Unicorn Winery

The tasting room is a short drive from the roadway past a large pond with a fountain. Outside you will find chairs and tables where you can picnic and enjoy the view. For a non-drinker or designated driver, this is a great spot to read.

Vint Hill Craft Winery

If we had taken this photograph a couple of decades ago, we might have been shot. Vint Hill Farm Station (Wikipedia) was established during the Second World War as a signals monitoring station and cryptography school.

Pearmund Cellars

Turning West off of Georgetown Road, you have the opportunity to drive a gravel road through the vineyard before arriving at the tasting room. We found the parking lot and tasting room full (always a good sign).

Vintage Ridge Vineyard

Vintage Ridge Winery

[UPDATE July 2014] Sadly, Vintage Ridge is no more. The property has been sold and the new owners plan to keep it as a personal residence.

Aspen Dale Winery at the Barn

Aspen Dale Winery at the Barn

There are many wineries that take on a rustic look by creating a structure to appear as an old farm structure. At Aspen Dale you will do your wine tasting in a real barn, converted into a tasting room, that is surrounded by other farm buildings.
