The scenic Mountain Run Winery opened its doors in 2016. Located just a few minutes from downtown Culpeper, this small, family-owned business continues the winery expansion in the Piedmont area of Virginia. 

The family's philosophy of living in harmony with our surroundings is evidenced through the location of the main tasting room, an old corn crib that's open to the elements (so no air conditioning and the free-roaming insects). An upstairs indoor tasting room is available for bad weather days. 

Chardonnay, Crimson Cabernet, Chambourcin, and Cabernet Franc vines have been planted on the tiny two-acre vineyard, along with small plots of American grapes, including Niagara, Concord and Catawba native vines. More acreage is planned. Along with the grapes, the winery cultivates blackberries, raspberries, elderberries, and blueberries.

Plan to stay for sunset - Mountain Run promises they'll stay open.
