Barrel Oak was a very enjoyable cap on a recent trip to the area. They have a respectable selection with two six-wine tasting flights, or they can be combined. They don't separate the flights by color, but by sweet/light vs dry/deep, which is nice. They have a nice view of the Blue Ridge mountains from their large porch with multiple fire pits, or there are tables inside.

One important note is that it is *very* dog friendly, so anyone with allergies or who is otherwise adverse to dogs may want to find a different winery to visit.

First of all, let me say I am a dog lover. And I love wine. And I love Virginia...we have been watching this building for several ears on our way to Washington DC? Today on our way home, we finally stopped. These folks have the whole deal. Good wine (full tasting $12, partial, $6), a nice selection of cheese and other munches, fire pits for cool days, a great gift shop, and best of all...THEY LOVE DOGS. Today is a beautiful, mid-sixties, sunny, Saturday before Christmas, and whole there were a whole lot of very nice people (and their dogs) we didn't feel crowded or rushed. If you love wine and a beautiful setting, try this winery. And did I mention the owners are REALLY nice? Cheers!

I have been there many times with my friends and family. I love going and watching a band play and relaxing on the patio. The wine is wonderful. The employees are happy to tell you all about them. They've recently opened the outdoor sangria bar which is a great addition.

Was touring some of the wineries in VA one weekend and decided to stop by Barrel Oak Winery. Beautiful surroundings, the leaves were starting to change, music and great wine. This winery was perfect for the whole family.
Loved it and will go back in the future.

For a VA vineyard, they actually pour a few decent red wines. In reality though, you really go there for the picnic tables, music, ambiance and dogs. Bring your friends, family and dogs, and don't forget some snacks (but if you do, they can prepare plenty of them for you!) Then buy yourself a couple bottles of Petit Verdot and sit out by a bonfire for the afternoon.
