The winery and tasting room are housed in what was once the massive Central Virginia Livestock Yard, so there is plenty of space to spread out with a picnic, either in the old barns or on the grounds.
A small, spare but elegant tasting room, opened in September 2010, is in contrast to the rustic surroundings.
The highly respected winemaker, Michael Shaps helped get the wines here off on the right foot. Wines have included Petit Manseng, Chardonnay, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot, plus a Rose and a couple of fruit wines, with prices on the lower end of what you'll find in Virginia.
The vineyards have been expanded since opening, and now inlcude Petit Manseng, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Chambourcin, Traminette, Tannat, Malbec, Pinotage, Albarino and Arneis.
A large indoor/outdoor ampitheater hosts a number of large festivals and events.
Kids and pets welcome; weddings and private parties accommodated.
