“Good Small Winery Close to Old Rag Mountain”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

A great small feel winery super close to Old Rag that welcomes hikers with a friendly staff, so don't worry about showing-up sweaty or in your hiking clothes.
The scenery is great with panoramic views of Old Rag Mountain from a back upper level porch. There are plenty of chairs, tables, and hammocks outside so after the wine tasting (~7 wines for $5) grab your favorite wine (mine was the Pinnacle, a Malbec and Cabernet blend) and enjoy some relaxing time post your big hike!

“Sharp Rock Vineyards B&B”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

My wife and I stayed in the Cottage with a couple of good friends and had a wonderful time. We arrived on Friday after the tasting room had closed and Jimm was gracious enough to open the tasting room for us and let us sample his wines. As with each time we have been there before, the wines were outstanding. The Cottage was definitely an awesome get away and the absence of television and cell service didn't bother us one bit! We will definitely bring a fishing rod next time to try and get a trout from the river running through the property. We make Sharp Rock Vineyards a regular stop each time we head towards Sperryville to sample the wines from the many vineyards in that area. Without a doubt, Sharp Rock is our favorite vineyard in that area. Jimm and Kathy are wonderful hosts and the wines are excellent. We will be back soon!!

“Rustic feel”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

What I liked about Sharp Rock is the very personal feel. This was our last winery for the day, as part of a weekend bachelorette party. Although they were about to close for the day, the staff did not make us feel unwelcome; in fact, they accomodate our group and patiently answered our questions. By the way, the tasting room is upstairs, not on the ground floor. When you enter the building, you initially think you've entered a storage area because what you first see are the wine barrels. Sharp Rock is a nice place to just hang out and enjoy the wine. It feels very peaceful. I would come back again.

“Great Wine and Beautiful Setting.”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We stopped by on a Cold Saturday in Feb and were surprised by the beauty and friendliness. The owner did our tasting so we learned everything about each wine. We had a great conversation with him and felt very welcome. We had a hard time picking which wines to purchase as everything we tasted was above average and most unique.

“Waiting for Columbus”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Stayed at the B&B in the Carriage House mid week, so had a quiet time there. Place is rustic and you feel you have stepped away from the real world in a good way. We were off the grid! No cell coverage or Wifi. It was a nice feeling. Carriage house completely comfortable, the air conditioning was actually quieter than a Hampton Inn we had stayed at the night before. Breakfast was good fresh fruit and a fresh warm cinnamon cake that you eat in your cottage. Jimm the owner did it all and provided us great insight to the workings of the winery, and gave us a fresh pressed cup of chardonnay juice from a recent pressing that was fantastic. His wine catalog is mostly dry wines that are completely representative of that area of Virginia. Very good, and better pricing than larger winerys nearby that focus more on curb appeal. Would definitely visit again. Came back home to PA via Skyline drive and a small bear crossed the road in front of us in the middle of the day. So cool. Ate at Thortons, and visited Copper Fox Distillery (Get the Rye). Neat to have a small place like this where you have both the winery and BB in one stop for a reasonable price, along with a very friendly host.
