Jim Law is one of the pioneers that has helped raise Virginia wines to the level most of them now deserve and enjoy. He has farmed his property for over 30 years and knows the grapevines intimately. Each harvest, he lets that harvest determine how the wines will taste and how they will be labeled. The winery is very zen and laid back. Over the years Jim has reduced the number of days that the winery is open, how large a group can be, and what type of food he serves. Its a successful operation and reflects his values and priorities. Beautiful property, fantastic wines and professional, knowledgeable staff.

We always enjoy coming here and enjoying the beautiful setting of Jim Law's rustic tasting room while overlooking his perfectly-pruned vineyard. Jim has been VERY instrumental in the VA wine industry and has been a huge part of the fact that some VA wineries have national as well as international acclaim!

If you aren't seriously into wine or enjoying the library-esque setting that is Linden, you might not understand why so many truly appreciate visiting as well as enjoying Linden wines. This is definitely NOT A PARTY PLACE! Please don't bring a party or large groups, you won't be welcome. There are plenty of bar-style wineries in VA that are suited for large crowds where you can enjoy mediocre wines... this isn't one of them.

Jim's staff is incredible as well! We love that we see familiar faces each time we go and appreciate the welcoming atmosphere and great service they provide.

If you are learning wine, this is a great place to learn! The staff are all quite capable of helping you learn and while enjoying their incredible wines.

Jim Law and his team have always led the Virginia wine industry. If you’re serious about the experience, travel to Linden Vineyards and sign up for a cellar tasting. This in depth focus on the wine and the wine making is a necessity for those serious about wine.

We had a great tasting at Linden and really enjoyed the varietals they offer. We opted for both the white and red tasting and were pleased with both. It was treat to talk wine with owner for bit. Staff were excellent and well informed about the wine, their vineyards, and their philosophy about their vintages. If you get a chance to make a weekend of it visit Liden then stay overnight down the road at the Black Dog Farm Inn.

We took a ride out Fauquier County to stop by a couple of wineries today since the weather was so nice. We had been to Linden once before and enjoyed their wines and tasting room so we decided to stop in again. It was fairly empty when we arrived and we were able to do a tasting right away. As we remembered, we liked their wine and wanted to buy a bottle to have there. When we expressed interest in purchasing a bottle, we were asked if we were case members. Since we were not members of Linden, we were told we could not stay and have any wine there. The previous time we were at winery was on a weekday during the off season so we were able to sit on their deck with a bottle and did not realize the exclusivity of Linden. Apparently on any weekend and Fridays during the summer, only case members can sit and stay. Linden offers no other options for non-members. Other wineries we have visited have member-only areas and other exclusive benefits for their wine clubs, but there has always been an option to purchase and sit for a glass or two for non-members.

In my opinion, it is bad for business to have such restrictions. I can appreciate member-only perks, but to force non-members to either buy into the club or leave seems like it would alienate more people than it would attract. There are others wineries out in Fauquier County that are more hospitable than Linden so I would recommend staying away...unless you are a member.

I was surprised with the rude staff and poor service. They make you feel like if you don't know much about wine, then you don't "belong" at this vineyard.

I would pass on stopping at this vineyard. Too many others to visit that offer both great service and good quality. Its too bad Linden vineyards didn't understand that poor or rude service makes any high quality product turn into vinegar.

My wife and another couple spent last weekend visiting four Virginia wineries. We went to Linden at the suggestion of the owner of another winery.

Put in wine terms: visiting Linden had notes of exclusivity and inhospitality with a strong finish of arrogance.

We went to taste a particular wine. We arrived and began a tasting and after a couple of glasses we asked if the recommended wine was one they featured. The answer was yes, but that was a different more exclusive tasting and it was too late to sign up. The sad thing was no one offered us a choice upon arriving.

We asked if we could buy a glass of the wine we sought. We were told they only sold by the glass to people who were members of the "Case Club". So we bought a bottle and then were told we could not drink it in their seating area, unless we bought a case.

If you are seriously into wine, there might be something at Linden for you, but for the casual crowd interested in a fun experience, there are hundreds of other Virginia wineries where you'll get a proper welcome.

Visited this winery twice in the past few months. The first time I was a guest of someone who was a "case club" member. It was a very enjoyable experience and I thought the scenery was exquisiste. The wine was also very good, in comparison to some of the other VA wines I've tried. The second time I went was on 4th July. We got there just in time to taste to wine and then they closed, so we didn't get to enjoy the deck, although we would have been eligible as non-members, since it was a weekday. I agree with many of the other reviews regarding the "case club" membership. It's a shame because it makes the place feel unwelcoming and snobby. I would consider going back there, but I urge the owners to lift the ridiculous membership rule, which only serves to alienate people.

Wow. Wow. Wow. This is the best vineyard to visit in Virginia bar none. We spend a lovely relaxing Saturday at Linden and enjoyed a vineyard tour led by the owner. We then enjoyed a wonderful tasting, followed by enjoying a bottle of wine on a beautiful deck. Top notch. A must visit!

First off, TA should update the details of Linden - this winery is not in Middleburg, VA rather Linden, VA. Linden is 40 minutes away from Middleburg.

Okay here is the deal on this winery. If you are looking for the best white wine in VA - this is the place to come. I'm a case club member and their sav blacn and chard (particularly Hardscrabble) are exquisite!

Now for the negative.... the women that work here are very rude and extremely pretentious. At first I thought I was being too sensitive when I first visited Linden, however each subsequent visit I experienced the same cold treatment..... if that wasn't enough I just hoped on TA to see similar reviews regarding their service.

In sum, go for the great wine and nice back porch (open to case club members only which I think is very caste system esque and something that I loathe) but don't go expecting warm and friendly customer service.

I wish one could take the wines from Linden and hire the staff from Philip Carter or Fox Meadow to create a spectacular experience.
