This is a 3 year old sister winery to the Grape Creek Winery which is an original winery since the 80’s. The grounds are beautiful and the wine tasting was paired with delicious food tidbits that enhanced the wine flavor. Our wine connoisseur/guide Chuck was excellent. He was full of interesting facts and answered all of our questions. The wines were wonderful and the food pairings were absolutely perfect for each wine selection. We so enjoyed our time here and would recommend this to anyone. For the experience you are standing the entire time and there’s a TV screen behind the counter to watch short clips explaining wine production. Would have been nice to have bar stools for added comfort. The other disappointment is that unless you get a “free” membership, you can not order any wines. The membership is free but you have to commit to buy 4 bottles in November with the membership which comes to around $200. You are not allowed to just purchase a bottle of wine to bring home. They push the membership a bit I felt. You can not sit outside on their patio or in an outside restaurant where they serve appetizers if you don’t have a membership. Would maybe be nice to go to a winery where you can sit and enjoy the winery and buy something to bring home. All that said, the 3 of us fully enjoyed ourselves. Took about 1 1/4 hour total.

My husband and I went here for a tasting on a Wednesday morning and we were the only people there for while. If you’re concerned about Covid and trying to avoid crowds this would be the best time to visit, early morning weekdays. They do get busy later in the day and REALLY busy on weekends so I would highly recommend a reservation. The grounds and building are beautiful and the wines and delicious! Each wine was paired with a little snack. Our host Kathy was very friendly and knowledgeable, we had a great time chatting with her. We are members at grape creek and and now at Heath as well, I’m excited to see their members patio when construction is completed.

I did a weekend girls’ trip to Fredericksburg with two friends and Heath Sparkling Wines was my favorite stop. You have to reserve and pay in advance, but having a scheduled reservation system keeps this place from being overcrowded. The aesthetic is cool and modern and classy, and the wines are EXCELLENT. They surpassed my expectations. This will be a place I return to on future trips. Kathy was my group’s tasting ambassador and she was nice and knowledgeable. The personalized attention was a treat.

I’ve wanted to try heath sparkling wines for a while! My husband and 7 month old came for a belated a Valentine’s Day celebration on a Wednesday and we were turned away bc they follow strict rules of 21+. I understand why they turned us away (although it was a Wednesday and no one was there besides the staff and my 7 month old was sleeping in his car seat completely covered). But the ultimate kicker was after the staff turned us away, they asked but would you like to purchase a bottle still for home? Seriously!!!! Wow…I’ve already vocalized how I’ve never been here and you want me to buy a bottle after you’ve turned us a way! I’ve worked at another winery that would never treat customers this way; a nice apology and please come back would have been appreciative. Is a few dollars that important to you? Really? Will never go here again to actually have a tasting and would never suggest it to anyone bc of such bad customer service. Why try and upsell me at this point ??! It's just rude and bad customer service. We were able to go to Inwood Estate next door and would highly recommend this winery instead! Inwood Estates made our experience perfect!

Due to our space being limited and the fact that we are an alcohol establishment, we have decided to make our properties 21 years & older. We often offer other options, such as recommendations of locations that allow guests under 21. We are happy to hear that you found an option that you enjoyed!

I went to Heath Sparkling Wine with my parents and we left disappointed by the experience. The staff was nice during the ~35 minute tasting and the videos were educational but they gave us a really hard sell to join the wine club. We felt that their demeanors changed when we said no. We liked the wine and wanted to purchase a few bottles but we weren't allowed to, despite the tasting menu saying otherwise, unless we committed to buying 7 bottles (3 on the spot and 4 wine club). The "salesperson" pressure really ruined the experience for us.

We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your experience. Due to the vintage nature and limited production, our wines are currently only available to Heath Sparkling and Grape Creek members.

We loved our tasting at Heath Sparkling Wines! It's right across the parking lot from Grape Creek. We made a reservation ahead of time. Our host Ivan did an amazing job - knowledgeable, entertaining, answered questions very easily, personable, and clearly had a passion not just for Heath's sparkling wines, but for wine and the area. Heath pairs each of the four sparkling wines available to taste with a curated bite of food - lemon parfait, an Asian-inspired cucumber shrimp bite, a spear of strawberry with mint, balsamic, and caprese, and a BLT wrap with (I think) chipotle aioli. But if you have food intolerances, fear not! If you reserve ahead of time and list any dietary restrictions, Heath will tailor your bites accordingly.

My wife and I have visited most of the wineries…and even a few breweries within the area of Fredericksburg. We have been very impressed with a few of the overall wineries along with their presentations and eagerness to welcome you into their tasting rooms to share their wines…with a modest fee for the tastings of course.

This past Sunday we stumbled upon Heath Sparkling Wines…next door to Grape Creek Winery. The building was of a contemporary design and appeared very inviting. As we walk into the large lobby we were immediately greeted by the very welcoming and most professional, Kendal. He explained the procedures and processes of making a reservation for having a “One on One” tasting of their 4 sparkling wines (this was pared with 4 different samples of foods as well.

We immediately made our reservations for two ($25.00 each…well worth the experience.) As we did become Heath Sparkling Wines Members…the $50.00 was applied back to our purchase as a refund.

We were taken back to a private section (keep in mind that there are at least 4 of the identical areas designated to have the presentation shared by your own Heath Sparkling Wines representative.

We were very fortunate to have Susan Myers as ours. What a BLESSING to have Susan as the spokesperson for the moment to SHARE everything that we never knew about sparkling wines. The tastings were incredible along with the parings. We did not hesitate in become new members of a very innovative establishment.

Thanks again to Susan and the entire staff of Heath Sparkling Wines. I highly encourage you to visit.

Picture a snobby, exclusive LA restaurant without substance but if it were a winery. We were 10 mins late bc our Uber driver was late and they were like “we really shouldn’t even be letting you in since you’re this late.” Like it was some favor, even though we had prepaid and all but 2 tasting stalls were empty.
They were pretentious and wouldn’t let us stay to have a glass or bottle of anything bc we weren’t members. So we showed up for a 20 min tasting and couldn’t even hang out. The whole place was empty and they were like “we’re sold out!”Everyone we talked to at the next winery had a bad experience here too. They were rude and unaccommodating. They’re trying to be exclusive and hip, but Fredericksburg isn’t the place for that. Highly recommend Barton’s Creek Winery!

We visited several wineries this past weekend and Heath Sparkling Wines was our first stop of the day. They usually recommend scheduling a reservation, however we were fortunate in that when we arrived they had an opening and were able to serve our group of 4 right away. Kim led us through our tasting and did an excellent job explaining the four different sparkling wines along with the food pairings (which were all excellent!). The tasting also included a video that showed the entire process of the wine being made which was pretty cool and unique. The space is very clean and modern, and there is a patio space out back where members can go enjoy a glass of wine. My friend and I actually joined the wine club as we have trouble finding good sparkling wines, and all the wines we tried at Heath were delicious. I especially liked the 2015 Euphoria.

I was especially surprised at how friendly and welcoming the staff at Heath Sparkling Wines was to our group. This winery is under the same ownership as Grape Creek, and I have had less than ideal experiences with some of the people who work there (I have found that unless you are a member they are often rude and not at all friendly). Everyone at Heath was so nice, and it might be because they are new, but I hope they keep it up! Thank you again to Kim for getting our Saturday off to an amazing start.

I understand this is a business but I suggest to back off a little bit on the pushy sales pitch to join the wine club membership. I’m not a huge wine drinker at home, but I wanted to take a bottle home from the tasting as a remembrance. I felt very pushed to get the membership instead of the bottle. I kept explaining that I know that the bottle is more expensive as a non-member, but I don’t like to drink that much back at home so I don’t want to get 2 bottles. I want 1. Harvey kept pushing on how much I’m missing out and how I would get 2 bottles for $80 and not just 1 for almost $50. I kept reiterating that I was okay with that but he kept pushing and being all snobby when I didn’t want the membership.
