    Tasting Room

    We believe that wine tasting should be an enjoyable and memorable experience — in a great location. So we have designed our tasting room to maximize the views, with a cathedral ceiling window wall looking straight out to the mountains of Shenandoah National Park. Our expansive shaded patios and our new secluded deck overlook 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.
