Owner description: Tucked into the edge of Shenandoah National Park at Washington Virginia, Little Washington Winery is the coolest destination winery in Virginia Wine Country. Home of the Dirt Road Wine Tour, every visit is completely different with their own wines ... their George is named #1 red wine in Virginia and their Shenandoah Steel is named #3 white wine in Virginia. They also collect the most incredible wines you'll never find anywhere from other small farms in Virginia and beyond and showcase them. The tasting is completely different every day.

“great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

This winery only has 3 wines but they are good. the day we were there the vinter was having us taste 2 of his chardonnays--one aged in steal and the other in oak. He has not yet determined if/how to blend them. Because they have so few of their own wines they will also take you on a tasting tour of the world. We tasted wine from Spain, Italy, and Oregon. On another occassion we tasted wine from Hawaii, France and Australia. It was very interesting and the vinter told wonderful stories of the regions and the wines. We like their wine, we like their tasting room, we like the wine tour. You never know from one weekend to the next what wines you might taste.

“nice wines, beautiful view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

Stopped by Little Washington Winery on Sun. I had tried some of there wines at a recent wine festival and wanted to see their tasting room, as well as sample some more wines. The wines produced at the winery were very good and the staff very knowledgeable. A nice touch was their presentation of some wines from 3 other small wineries, which they called their "dirt road tour". The staff told me that they opened a bottle from 3 different wineries each week. We got to taste wines from Arizona, Italy and Spain and all were good choices at nice prices. The view from the tasting room deck offered a beautiful vista of rolling hills and the Blue Ridge Mtns. and is a great place to drink a nice glass (or bottle) of wine.

“Very Personable Attention”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

Carl was most knowledgeable, informative and helpful with all of our wine questions. The tasting was free, and we took home several great finds, particularly a Cab-blend called "George."

Disappointing, do not bother, very disorganized, maybe they drank everything before we came?

“close to parma, and excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

We stayed at Parma (right up the road!) -- being able to try fabulous wines and have great conversation, and then just doddle up the road to our room - can't beat that!!
