This winery offers a broad tasting of many wines. They were all good and I enjoyed the reds the best. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Come, taste, your ruins and hang out.

You can get some history, see some ruins and get some wine. Great setting and a good spot for wine and a picnic. Tony was a great taster and enjoyed talking with him.

I was a bit skeptical of trying Virginia wines since I hadn't enjoyed the few I'd tried in the past. Barboursville did not disappoint! We did the $10 tasting and were able to try at least 15 wines ranging from their Brut to dessert wines....More

I’ve been to Barboursville many times over the years and each time am stunned by how consistently fantastic their wide variety of wines are. There are a few experiences you can have on the property itself. There’s the general tasting, which can be a little...More
