There are a lot of wineries with rolling hills and vineyards to overlook. This is not one of them. It is very close to the awesome Old Bust Head brewery, the small, but interesting Cold War Museum and a small cafe. The names of the wines all point toward the history of the area, in a fun way. I don’t think many of the wines are their own, and when we visited, there were no tastings because of COVID, but the ones I tried were very good.

After visiting the Cold War Museum, we walked across the parking lot to visit the Vint Hill Winery. Located on the grounds of the former Vint Hill Station, do not expect to see row upon row of grape vines. Most of the grapes are sourced from across Virginia, Washington state and California. There were a few vines on the property. This is a craft brewery that allows you to make your own wine. I noticed a sign in the tasting room advertising its classes to learn about their vintner program. There was a tasting room set up on the ground level and a service bar set up in the outdoor courtyard with both chairs and picnic tables. Food such as cheese and cracker plates are available for purchase. I did not go upstairs to see the tasting room that overlooked the production area. There are various posters on the walls of the lower level touting wines with unusual names like Bombshell Cabernet Sauvignon and Covert Wineworks. The winery is located in a building that once housed a Morris Code translating station. If you look at the top of the silo, you will see a chimney. The silo was used to burn classified documents of the Vint Hill Station. Outside the fenced-in courtyard is a historical marker for Vint Hill Farm Station. We chose not to do a wine tasting due to time constraints.

Th wine is from the Pearamund Family of wineries in and around Fauquier County, so you know it will be good. The draw here is the history. Vint Hill was an intelligence gathering army installation, and as such there is a wealth of history associated with the area. Sip some wine and learn some history. There is even a small museum. Once a farm, the silo became part of the ears of army intelligence. The labels for the bottles are even reminiscent of this era.

My first trip today with my wife, in laws, and long-time friends and We were all enjoying this time capsule of Americanism. Fine wines, personally most impressed with "Rosie" the rose', and the Cabernet Sauvignon. The Chardonnay "Charlotte" was an interesting white, barrel aged yet lighter with a stainless-tasting finish. The Sauvignon Blanc was light and crispy, and the port, not on the tasting menu, was superb. No food other than baguettes/crackers and cheese on premises, but head to the Farm Station Cafe and get a great burger, club, or frittata to take back and enjoy the very friendly, knowledgeable,and down to earth staff. Next stop--The Brewery.

Had a great time trying the wines of Vint Hill and taking to the staff about the small batch winemaking they there. Great Syrah and a Bordeaux style blend. Also enjoyed seeing the old German and US old war items next door at the Cold War. Museum. I have been to the winery several times since I live in Fauquier Co.

A very friendly staff offering a fine selection of wines, crafted with various flavors. The site of this winery is in one of the barns used by the US Army to listen and decode enemy communications starting in WW2.

Great small winery with a salute to the military and the part Vint Hill Farms Station provided during the Cold War. Good wine, friendly people and plenty of eating options. Great way to spend a weekend. The Cold War museum is open on the weekends only. Highly recommend the winery.

A winery on the site of a WW2 signals intelligence facility combines two of my favorite things, history and booze. I liked the Chardonnay, Viognier, and Syrah. Each was $25 a bottle which is on the cheaper side for Virginia wines. As with all Virginia wineries you are really paying for casual country setting. It's a small area at Vint Hill but it's shady and surrounded by history. About a 45 minute drive from the District. GPS was very misleading and it was difficult to find. The staff was awesome. Most friendly winery staff I've encountered in Virginia.

This is a great winery with a difference. It plays off the fact that the site, an old dairy farm, used to be a WWII and Cold War listening post. The farmers discovered that they could hear German and then Russian radio broadcasts. And so, a huge number of people were taken to that area to listen to those boardcasts and break the codes. The wine is supervised by one of Virginia's best winemakers--Chris Pearmund. The wines regularly win gold and silver medals around Virginia and the US. A humorous note is that some of the wines are decorated with copies of the pin up "girls" that decorated bombers and U-2 spy planes. Other wines require you to brush up on your morse code to read which grapes make that delicious bourdeaux style wine. Plan on spending some extra time so you can visit the Cold War museum next door.
