Everyone's talking about Little Washington winery Tucked right into the sweet spot of Virginia wine country high on the edge of Shenandoah National Park at little Washington Virginia. It's home of 2 of the top rated wines in Virginia and Dirt Road Wine Tour. Every visit is completely different with the Little Washington Winery portfolio of wines + the most incredible wines you'll never find anywhere, typically sold off right on small farms in Virginia and beyond.

We enjoyed a Saturday there for a little festival they were having. There were wine tasting for a fee or you could just buy wine by the glass. We had two different greetings from two different servers. One lady was very nice, helpful and explained what options we had, another was short and cold, not friendly at all. The weather... More

We attended the wine bootcamp last weekend. The winery owner, Carl, is quite a character and made the classy very entertaining. I'm no stranger to wine, but still learned a lot in the class. I felt I got my money's worth and would recommend this to anyone interested in wine. The winery is unique in that it serves and sells... More

My friends and I took the wine boot camp and had a great time. The instructor/owner was very knowledgeable and made the class a lot of fun. The winery not only serves their wines (which are really good) but also some select wines from around the world. Can't wait to go back for some more classes.

My husband and I took the Wine Boot-camp class at the winery. The owner, Carl, makes the class both fun and informative. We had the chance to taste about 11 different wines and paired them with food and chocolate. We surprisingly discovered we actually like Reissling! Highly recommended for a great day in the country.

This isn't wine for dummies it's Wine Boot Camp. It's the most interactive, informative, interesting way to learn about wine in under three hours. The owner Carl Heinrickson is a wine connoisseurs encyclopedia of knowledge mixed with an awesome dry sense of humor. No other wineries in the area offer what this one does and it makes drinking grapes from... More

I took a class--"Around the World in 80 Minutes"--fun and informative. I'll definitely take another class here. They strive for excellence in their own wines as well as in those they bring in from other wineries around the world. Only one downside--absolutely NOT handicap friendly.

This is a very basic winery and tasting room, but the owner, Carl, makes the difference. The place was packed when we got there on a Saturday, and we had to wait 10 minutes or so to do a tasting. But the owner came over and did a tasting for just me and my wife, and spent the time explaining... More

We had a groupon for their wine boot camp. Honestly, I would have rather spent my time else where. The boot camp was two and a half hours way too long, they could have condensed everything into one hour. To be honest, my whole experience started off on the wrong foot as one of their staff members spilled RED wine... More

The Little Washington Winery is a bit of an anomaly, in that besides many nice VA wines, they offer some international wine selections, that one will likely not see in any other VA winery tasting room. The winery is not the easiest to find, and when you feel that you are in a school parking lot, you are almost there... More
