Nice first visit here. Server was welcoming and enjoyable. I really enjoyed one of the wines a lot, others were ok. The lack of food was hard but next time I'll know to pack food.

In the midst of a wide variety of vineyards in this Virginia area Flying fox stands out- their award winning wines are beautiful, the prices reasonable, and the tasting room is always welcoming and filled with interesting people.

This winery tasting room is off-site from the vineyard. The wines were good and the small tasting room was in a good location.

Stopped by this quaint place on a Sunday afternoon - the owner was so kind and the wine was absolutely divine! They also offered a sample of their fantastic mulled wine for the winter season as well. Join the wine club as while this may not be the most scenic of the surrounding wineries, you will appreciate the quality wine... More

I didn't think much of Flying Fox as I drove up, but I loved all the wines! The view and atmosphere were nothing great, but the wines were fantastic and the value amazing. I will definitely buy their wines in the future!

Stopped in with a few friends while staying at Wintergreen and enjoyed the experience. This is a fairly small tasting room but nicely laid out and the staff took the time to explain their craft.

As part of our drive along the breweries and wineries in route 151, we made a stop here for some wine tastings. The lady who took care of us, along with her dog Carson, were very helpful and friendly. She did a great job explaining the tastes and history of each wine we tasted. I am very partial to reds,...

We loved the wine tasting here. The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. We don't drink a lot of wine, but we are about to, as we bought a case of delicious reds and whites.

Flying Fox is a smaller winery, but don't let this make you skip it. The tasting room is still big enough to seat many, and the wines speak for themselves. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Very enjoyable visit!
