CULINARY PHILOSOPHY

Our philosophy is to elevate your Virginia wine country experience not only by tasting our award-winning 100% Virginia wines but also offering our guests a farm-to-table small plate pairing menu available in our tasting room & garden patio. Our menus are designed to pair specifically with our wines and feature local farms and seasonal fare. We offer different spaces to enjoy our pairings.
