I happened to be driving through the area, and decided to stop in. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The tastings are done by prearranged flights, compared to most in the area, where you choose from a list. As none of the flights were exactly what I was looking for, and the $14 starting price for 4 tastings of... More

We enjoyed a lovely wine tasting here with a delicious assortment of fine meats and cheeses, as well as live music! We also bought wine, wine jelly, and wild-crafted local hickory syrup in their shop!

First, i am biased to French Red Wines. I mostly drink Bordeaux. I am a Cab lover and biased. I don't usually drink Virginia wines, but on a recent visit to Early Mountain Vineyards, I was impressed. I liked their wines - especially their Eluvium 2012 which is 50% Merlot, 32% Cab Sauv and 18% Cab Franc. I purchased some... More

I live nearby Early Mountain Vineyards have visited it often. This might be my second review of the vineyard. I love the atmosphere. The music is good, the staff is nice, some of the wine is good but the food has become consistently disappointing. Not only is it expensive but it isn't enjoyable. In particular the "gluten free" panini/sandwiches are... More

The winery offers a flight of four 2 oz pours. They have wines from other wineries as well as there own. the food coming out of the kitchen looked fantastic. Great place to picnic inside or out.

Early Mountain doesn't have a lot of its own wines (yet),so in addition to theirs they feature wines from other local vineyards, as well as a few cideries. They feature a menu of light foods, including sandwiches and cheeses, as well as live music on the weekends. We have visited several times and will keep coming back!

I love Early Mountain. The staff is so friendly, the wine selection is great and represents several Virginia wineries; the food is delicious, especially the sandwiches; and the environment, both inside and outside, is absolutely beautiful! We have been back numerous times and are never disappointed. If you are looking for a place to enjoy a glass of wine in... More

The only reason why i am giving it an "average" is because "Good" is not an option, and since the wine was not as good (it is a vineyard after all), I do not think I can give it a "Very good." But, the food was great, the space was really great and the set up could not be more... More

We stopped in while in the area for a lite dinner... it was around 6PM on a Friday night and they had a bluegrass band playing. They had a nice size crowd, but we were still able to get a GREAT table out on the patio. The music was wonderful! We ordered the flatbread for an appetizer which was REALLY... More
