Fred , Amy and even Grandma are great host! Love Ed the true heritage. First you start out with the wine tasting with Amy. All delicious fruit homemade wines! Bought a bottle of the mixed fruit wine. Opened it up when we got back to our Airbnb and went well with the fudge we picked up and the cheese and crackers we had. Then the tasting of whiskey with Fred. Loved the history of making it. A little strong for me but definitely! not for my husband. He bought the bourbon whiskey which he loved. Beautiful country setting. America is built on the backs of families like this!! Support your local communities🇺🇸🇺🇸🍷🍷. How can we forget grandma as we really got a kick out of her and to know she worked while in college taking a ferry years ago to work back in Long Island! Too close to home. Worth the visit!!Thank you

You have to drive through a neighborhood that turns into a farm to get to River Hill, but it is well worth tracking down. It is a pretty small operation as distilleries go, but the owners are really down to earth and enthusiastic. Pop is happy to give a tour of the unassuming place: there is the tap room, and the small room behind it is the distillery. "This is my vat, those over there are my barrels." The bourbon and corn whiskey he makes are all worth picking up. If they aren't the best you've had, you will appreciate the taste of down home honesty. My wife was happy to chat with Mom and sample the fruity wines they sell (yes, including Sweet Potato.) I find those type of wines good for desserts or pancakes, but my wife likes the occasional spritzer. They were out of one that my wife selected, but she got a kick out of watching Pop decant her bottle directly from a barrel, and he let her label it and put the seal over the cork. The property itself is pretty large, and they do a number of other things aside from the distillery. You can buy meat at the counter with your wine, and they also board horses and I understand they have a shooting range. This is a place you want to visit just so you can recognize it when some author inevitably includes it as a setting in a novel.

Fred and Amy are very gracious hosts. My husband and I started our visit with a wine tasting that Amy presented. We aren’t usually fans of fruit wines but these were really good and not too sweet. Loved the cherry wine so much we bought a bottle. Then Fred came out and gave us a tour of the distillery and explained the process which was really interesting. During the tasting we got to try the corn whiskey and both of the bourbons along with Fred’s version of apple pie, corn whiskey, cider and cinnamon. Delicious! We ended up leaving with whiskey and wine. Definitely will visit their beautiful property again.

We stopped here on our visit to Luray and I’m so glad we did. The owner gave us a personal tour of how he makes his whiskey/bourbon. The tasting was delicious and the wines were great as well. What made the tour even better was how excited the owner was to show us around the building. You could tell they take pride in the making of their wine & whiskey.
