At Virginia wineries and vineyards you can enjoy exclusive tours of wine caves and cellars, relax in gorgeous tasting rooms and outdoor areas, and participate in intimate wine tastings. Plus, almost all of our wineries are run and owned by families, so you’ll feel at home everywhere you go.

Planning a wine tasting excursion may seem overwhelming with hundreds of wineries to visit, each with its own distinctive style, location, and history. However, there is a tasting room experience perfect for everyone, whether you are there for fun or to explore the library collection and stock your cellar.
