We really enjoyed the wines at Rappahannock and our server (Modele) was very hospitable. They have fantastic reds as well as whites. They also have olive oils to taste. The food menu is tempting as well. There was quite a plug to join the wine club. Two wines a month is their deal but we are already wine members at other Virginia wineries. The view is nothing to write home about but some of the wines are.

Of all the vineyards we visited in the Shenandoah wine and whiskey loop, this was most “corporate,” which is not to say it wasn’t charming, or welcoming. But it was the most organized…polished, with an eye to profit.

Its wines were as well made as the large tasting room was well run. The casually uniformed (black top) staff was well informed and well trained. Upon entering and going to the right there were about twelve prepared tasting places awaiting new guests, each with a tasting menu, two glasses (the only one of the wineries with both red and white glassware) and water to rinse.

The tasting at Rappahannock Cellars consists of eight wines and costs are $8 (TIP: if it’s your first time checking in on FourSquare, you get a free tasting!!). Although the wines are generally at higher price point for VA wines (about $25 average), these were also some of the most…accessible, or at least broadest taste appeal. They’ve got something for everyone.

One of our favorites. Tasting fee is waived when you purchase several bottles of wine - which is how it should be.

I didn't find a single wine that was bad. Never had that happen before. Friendly staff reasonable prices. You can even by a barrel or wine soaked wood chips for smoken meat. Only down side is no food but found 99 percent don't have any in this area

This wine making family from California arrived to the Virginia Piedmont in 1998, situated at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains to continue their wine making passion. They specialize in Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Viognier, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

I have been here with my family several times to enjoy their wine tasting. Today we arrived to enjoy a March outdoor picnic followed by their wine tasting on a beautiful sunny day. As was the case on most weekends we were entertained by a local guitarist, who also sells his CDs. Who buys CDs these days?

The premium wine tasting costs $8 to taste eight wines. I love their Cab Franc and Sauvignon followed by their Viognier.

The only negative here are the rocky dirt roads leading to the main paved roads. You need not take your car to the car wash prior to your visit, but, afterwards is more appropriate.

This is my favorite winery in the area.
