Were quite familiar with the Delaplane area and VERY familiar with VA vineyards, as we've visited nearly half in VA (there are over 250!). We decided to finally go look for this winery and found it right away... Appeared to be an old, ancient vineyard...More

Your first impression will be to drive on by, and you won't regret it if you do. But if you're on that country road anyway, ignore the appearance of the "tasting room" (which is a run down old house right by the road) and stop...More

Although the web site is still there, the recording on the phone makes no mention, and the sign on the front of the building still posts its hours, the little tasting room at Capitol Vineyards is locked up tighter than a drum. Emails sent to...More

Visited Capital Vineyard Sept 2013. The directions on the Virginia Winery Guide was misleading and confusing; appears to try to fool the drivers into taking this arduous winding path for 10-miles into cow-poop country before they release nothing out here worth the effort. There were...More

Read the other reviews for what they are - yuppie coupon users who want the Rockefeller treatment, super paved winery parking lots, granite counters, and lobster and filet for the price of a cheese sandwich and complain when they don’t get it and just write...More

We live near Leesburg and have visited nearly every winery in NoVA. Capitol is one of the few to which we've made a return visit. They are a bit further afield than most, and have worked the coupon sites to generate more traffic. But there...More

We invited our best friends for an afternoon out and boy were we embarrassed. I can not believe they are trying to sell themselves as a winery. We were worried that the floor of the shack was going to collapse. The staff was not friendly...More

Remember the old adage "getting there is half the fun", well it's an interesting voyage to Capitol Vineyards (where there really isn't a vineyard). If you exit off of I-66 you have 5 miles of winding one lane roads ahead of you but if you...More
