Overview

We are a family-owned and operated farm winery, located just north of Richmond VA. A refreshing change from the ordinary! Our staff serves a tasting of wines from whites to delicious reds and dessert wines in a tranquil country setting. Enjoy a picnic on our beautifully landscaped patio or capture the view from the terrace. James Batterson, winemaker, creates all wines from Virginia grown grapes.

Although the view of the moving cars on Washington Highway may be off-putting, we instead focused on our wines, the sunset, and the vines in front of us. For $8, tastings of 14 wines is amazing and really gave us a feel for the effort,...More
