Owner description: CrossKeys Vineyards is a beautiful 125 acre estate with 25 acres of vineyards. This small batch, family run winery currently produces around 4,000 cases of 11 different wines per year that are estate grown, produced, and bottled. With the first vines planted in 2001 and our first harvest in 2006, the winery opened its doors in May of 2008. In late 2012, the CrossKeys Bistro, our onsite restaurant, was established. In addition CrossKeys hosts many events, both public and private, and of course lots of weddings.

Nice atmosphere, beautiful grounds and great wine! This was our last stop on a winery tour and the staff were very accommodating of our large party.

Stopped here for Valentine's Day special chocolate and wine tasting. The chocolates (made by in-house chef of winery bistro) were terribly decadent but a little too sweet for my taste. Dessert wines were tasty and reasonably priced. Amazed at the variety of wines provided by the winery -- all from grapes grown on the premises. Seems like a very popular... More

I love going to Cross Keys because it feels like being in the Mediterranean! The buildings are beautiful and the grounds are well-kept. The wine is the best part! Amazing! Honestly do not drink any other VA wine except this- it is the best.

There are a lot of vineyards in Virginia so we decided to visit this one. It is a beautiful property with vines as far as you can see. The main house sits on a hill & it looks huge. There is a restaurant were you go for the wine tasting. You can sit on a patio outside if you choose... More

Sorry to say that we didn't have a great experience. 1) $10 tasting fee, no glass. (Don't misunderstand... I don't take these trips to collect glasses, but for $10 I would expect something. PS - Glasses are $3.95.) 2) $1.50 for a packet of oyster crackers like you find on a soup and salad bar. Perhaps someone should think about... More

I had my wedding at CrossKeys Vineyards on October 25, 2014. I can't say enough good things about the venue, and especially about the event coordinator, Elizabeth. Elizabeth was so professional and easy to work with, quick to respond to my emails and phone calls, and had a wealth of knowledge about wedding coordination and details. She helped get me... More

We stumbled upon this winery and were pleasantly surprised. The building is so beautiful, it would be a lovely setting for a wedding. We decided to taste the wine, the price is a little excessive, but the staff are very knowledgeable and engaging. I was not blown away by the wine, not my favorite, but my husband enjoyed many of...

We have visited this winery many times over the years, and it keeps getting better each trip. First the wines, most of the reds are exceptional. My wife likes the Joy Red, I lean towards the Meritage. Then there is Tavern, which is a port wine, top of the list. This trip, we found an expanded restaurant. Too many choices... More
