Beautiful house and landscaping but the wines are sub par. I had a hard time finishing the tasting. The tasting room/bar area seemed a little odd - like I was at someone's house. I guess they live there but walking through the seemingly personal dining room to get to the rest room was a bit odd. Just not for me... More

Stephen and Shannon Mackey have created a wonderful experience, where they have paired wine with music. Stephen is one of the few winemakers to bring Blaufrankish grapes to Virginia, and you just have to try his "Y'all make me blush" . The tasting room doubles as the family kitchen and dining area after all have gone for the day, and... More

Great little spot with an interesting vibe. They have interesting musical events and good food. The wine is good and adds to the vibe of the place. I really recommend attending one of their special events put on by Stage Coach Theater.

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting this vineyard; a twist to their pairing is not pairing wine and food, but wine and music. While that's good, I like to snack a bit while drinking wine to keep the balance. Food can't be purchased here, but you can bring your own. If you don't know that in advance, you could have quite a... More

Owner was a jerk. Treated my sister and the group I was with like dirt, not the paying customers we were. (Besides my 27year old sister, we are all in our 30s.) We were exhausted from an early wake up to run the local half marathon and he called my sis and friend "drunkards" for laying out on the grass... More

This review is patently false, and a review of our security camera footage (link below) illustrates that the woman in question was not "napping in the grass on a beautiful sunny day" but was rather passed out on the front lawn in an intoxicated and incoherent state. As seen in our security video, she is face down in the grass... More

Nine pours, with great music in a beautiful setting, Steve was entertaining and we were all fascinated as he explained to us about how each type of music get's paired with each wine. I am NOT a wine expert, but I do like good wines and good music so it was a win-win for me and our group of 25... More

We were so glad to have found Notaviva on our informal winery tour in the area. Their wines are inspired by genres of music, and while some of the associations were tenuous to me, I liked the idea of thinking about wine a new way-- especially because otherwise wine tastings can start sounding very repetitive! The wines themselves were delicious,... More

This vineyard is set on a nice property, the staff was friendly and the wine was good. The wine is all music inspired and they suggest wine pairings with types of music. It is a very interesting idea and we enjoyed our wine tasting. After the tasting we went upstairs, drank wine and enjoyed the live music. Check out their... More

We stopped by Notaviva on a whim and we're so glad we did, their wine is amazing. We liked everything we tasted and the story behind the winery made everything that much sweeter. The only bad thing is that they don't ship to our state but, we only live 2 hours away so we will be going back when we... More
