GENERAL'S RIDGE VINEYARD & LODGING

General's Ridge is located in the heart of Virginia's Northern Neck, near George Washington's and Robert E. Lee's birthplaces and near the historic town of Kinsale.

Like many of the best wineries in Virginia, General's Ridge was a vineyard before it was a winery. You'll figure this out as soon as you drive through the gates: the vines are as thick around as your wrist.  

The winery opened in April 2011, and works with the respected winemaker, Michael Shaps. Wines are from General's Ridge Vineyard grapes, and include GRV White, a Chardonnel/Traminette blend, Chardonnay, an easy-drinking GRV Red blend of Chambourcin and Merlot, a Cab Sauv/Cab Franc blend called Westmoreland Red, a Merlot, and a rare-for-Virginia Pinot Noir.

All wines are very reasonably priced, which is par for the course on the Northern Neck, and one of the reasons a Neck wine tour is such a pleasure.

Touring the Neck can begin and end at General's Ridge, which also offers several large meeting/event spaces, and two choices of lodging, both with nightly and weekly rates.

The Manor House's front yard is nothing but vine, which you can contemplate from the upstairs balcony or main level porch. The 180-year old restored Manor has 3 bedrooms, a full kitchen, and several sitting areas (including a cozy bar).

"Vineyard Views" is the name of the two-bedroom cottage over top of one of the event spaces. It includes a full modern kitchen, dining room, sitting rooms, large bedroom, and deck.  

For lodging reservations, call 804.223.2GRV (2478) or email reservations@generalsridgevineyard.com

Visitors are welcome to picnic in the "Vine Room" pavilion, or lay a blanket on the lawn. Nibbles are available for purchase, or bring your own.
