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

Moving to the area from northern VA and the abundance of wineries there, I was curious as to how central VA wineries would compare. This was probably the 4th winery I visited and have been back several times since. If you can get over the $17 fasting fee (just do it once, or share it with whomever you are with)... More

With the abundance of vineyards that have sprung up in central VA in the last ten years, it seems the various wineries begin to blend together after awhile. Early Mountain, however, separates itself by offering a myriad of great wines. The red blends are especially nice, and the outdoor seating arrangement makes for a great way to spend a relaxing...

Pleasantly surprised by the quality red wine selections! The facility was quite nice full of character and the atmosphere was relaxing for a rainy day!

My husband and I were able to stop and enjoy this winery after a day of hiking in Shenandoah. The building is huge and beautiful. The weather was lovely so we were able to sit outside and enjoy the view of the grape vines with the Shenandoah mountains in the distance. We had the wine tasting that only included the... More
