Upon arriving at this winery, you may not be able to find anyone near the tasting room. If so, ring the bell in the parking lot. The employees are often out in the vineyard so you may have to wait a few minutes for them arrive. The tasting room is inside a former flour mill that still has some of the original equipment inside. Outside, the man made pond and flume still diverts stream water through the now silent mill. This tasting room has a lot of character and is worth seeing. The winery is tied to the U.S. Civil War as the mill's founder was a former Confederate soldier.

The day of visit they were getting ready for their annual sweet/dessert wine festival. Of their wine offerings I found the Vidal Blanc and their apple wine to be very tasty! I'm always on the lookout for a nice peach wine (my mother seems to like these), so I was disappointed they were sold out of the Peach... will have to visit earlier next year. Another offering that you don't find to often in Virginia is the Earl of Chatham Mead - made from natural honey in the old English way, I find mead to be wonderful during the winter months/holiday season - put some in a crock pot with some mulling spices... yum....
