Overview

Bob and Linda Claymier are the owners of Desert Rose Ranch & Winery. They met as teenagers with Linda often visiting Bob where he grew up in the high desert country of eastern Oregon. Bob has been making wine for over 40 years and after an interesting career in the government (see R.E.D. from the wine list!) with much of it spent overseas in exotic locations and often dangerous assignments - they settled in Northern VA. Desert Rose Ranch & Winery was once a working cattle ranch (see Ole Moo Moo from the wine list!) and is still an operating horse operation which showcases several beautiful Arabian horses today. The winery opened in April of 2011 (April Fool's Day, of course!) and they are honored to be surrounded by some of the best vineyards and wineries in Virginia. Please come visit us and saddle up to the horseshoe tasting bar - we hope to see you 'round the ranch!

We had a nice tasting experience at Desert Rose. It is a venue type place with a family atmosphere that is familiar to VA Wine country. I recommend it for others to stop and enjoy!

We loved our tasting here. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The place was so warm and welcoming. Loved that they had plenty of seating areas around. Good wine as well. Worth the stop.

The scenery was wonderful. The wine selection was okay. Nothing spectacular. The owner is ex-CIA and the top of the tasting bar was full of foreign currency from where he has been. That was the best part!
