“Excellent wines, a great atmosphere and a passionate owner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

I visited Fabbioli for a tasting experience and was extremely impressed with not only the wines but with the zeal and passion for thr art of winemaking that Doug Fabbioli expressed throughout the visit. The Paco Roho, Chambourcin and Raspberry Merlot are without fault and each of his other varietals are fabulous as well.

Virginia is beginning to be recognized for its wine country and Fabbioli is surely leading the way and setting a standard for the newer winemakers to live up to.

As for the place itself, it's quite charming. A nice place to cozy up to a fire outdoors on a chilly day and enjoy a glass of vintage. The tasting rooms are well appointed.

My only complaint, the young lady who conducted our tasting seemed to not be able to offer much knowledge about the wines and didn't have the white wines chilled. I later was able to taste the Una Peara chilled and it made all the difference in the world.

Aside from that, I was already making plans to return as I left the property. A great place to spend time any day of the week! Make sure you speak with Doug Fabbioli when you visit. His knowledge and joie de vive will greatly accentuate your experience!

“Wonderful weekend trip close to DC!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

I was so happy to find GOOD Virginia wine so close to DC. I was there in less than an hour's drive and the cool Rasberry Merlot paired with chocolate made it worth it. I was also surprised to find very good red wines there as well. Stop by the Leesburg outlets for some shopping afterwards for the perfect little Saturday trip!

“Excellent wine tasting paired with chocolates.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

A new appreciation of red wine as a result of the pairings of wine with chocolates and savory meats and cheeses. The raspberry merlot and pear wine were a must buy for us.

“My favorite VA wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

Love Fabioli wine! Smooth, complex, mature reds. Pear port has a perfect balance of brandy and sweetness. And the Raspberry Merlot.. I can never buy enough.

“Tastings are as good as can be - A++”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

We were there Oct. 10, 2012. Gentleman who runs the tastings is very professional. You get a choice of chocolates or cheese/crackers with the $10 per person tastings of eight different wines. Their reds are better than we've seen at other nearby wineries, even though this winery is only a few years old. I give this the highest recommendation. Very convenient to Rte. 15 north of Leesburg, just 8-9 miles from Leesburg restaurants.
