Owner description: We are a family-owned and operated farm winery, located just north of Richmond VA. A refreshing change from the ordinary! Our staff serves a tasting of wines from whites to delicious reds and dessert wines in a tranquil country setting. Enjoy a picnic on our beautifully landscaped patio or capture the view from the terrace. James Batterson, winemaker, creates all wines from Virginia grown grapes.

“nice winery, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2012

don't have to drive too far out at all, right in the north part of the city with easy access from the interstate. Good wines, tasting went well, though I'm not a wine person, still provided good beer for those guys that had to bring along the better half.

“Just Average....nothing special”

You have to pay for your tasting even if you purchase wine. Wine was good. May or may not return

“Friendly, Good Wine, Nice Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

It's actually rather small inside where the tasting room is. We went on a Saturday (7/23/11) and I think they were having an engagement party outside. It just got crowded, that was my biggest issue. But the wines were rather good! I'm still getting into wine and am more of a white wine person, but I thought they were tasty.

It's $5 for a tasting and the staff is very friendly and helpful. In the summer they have a slushie type drink from the wine and on my gosh it was amazing. I wanted to just get a huge glass of that!

It's definitely worth a stop if you're passing through.
