We had a great tasting experience with a knowledgeable and friendly host. We purchased the viogner and a cab franc which were both delicious. Loved the information about growing and preparation.

Quaint vineyard. Had a wonderful afternoon sitting out on the deck with a glass of wine and picnic we brought with us. Tasting free when you buy a bottle. A hidden gem in the area.

Fantastic winery in Chester Gap. Knowledgeable staff, beautiful views from the deck outside. Bring friends, sit at a picnic table and enjoy the wine.

This is an absolutely beautiful vineyard with amazing views and excellent wine. Definitely worth the trip. Gorgeous German shepherds patrol the vineyards.

Our 73rd Virginia winery took us to Chester Gap. It's a small winery with a LARGE view. We would love to see it at the foliage peak but we missed it by a couple weeks. The tasting room is intimate and the wine server was one of the best we've had. Buy a bottle and get a free tasting. The... More

We learned of Chester Gap Cellars during a recent stay at the Hopkins Ordinary in Sperryville, VA. The proprietor brought us a glass of their Cuvee Manseng. We are not usually sweet wine seekers, but this glass prompted us to find the vineyard from which it originated. It was easily accessable out of Front Royal, VA, not far off the... More

At Chester Gap Cellars your tasting is free if you buy a bottle of wine. Simple enough and after all isn't that why tastings were created to begin with? Too many wineries charge too much money for a tasting when they should be selling bottles of wine. Chester Gap is not afraid. They let their wine speak for itself. Not... More

My husband and I stopped to buy a nice bottle of wine, purchasing the 2011 Voigner Reserve which was excellent. Stop in, if only for the view across the forest to the east and to enjoy a friendly conversation with the owner.

Chester Gap is a small, family run winery with great wines. The wine maker is a true artist and you usually get to talk to him and/or his wife in the tasting room. I recently drank some 2008 reds that I had put down, and they were sublime. I definitely recommend visiting this gem of a winery.
