On top of the world. That’s literally where you’ll be when you visit Chester Gap Cellars at the northern tip of beautiful Rappahannock County, enjoying not only stunning views from the Cellar’s open-air tasting patio but truly great, hand-crafted wines. At over 1,000 feet elevation but conveniently located just off of Route 522, near Front Royal and I-66, the Cellars is a prime destination for day trippers or weekenders seeking a tranquil, intimate, friendly place to put their feet up, taste through Bernd Jung’s estate-grown Viognier, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and innovative blends, and let their eyes feast on lovingly tended vines and the endless blue mountains and hills of the southeast Piedmont. What is the wine all about at Chester Gap Cellars? The Jung family’s commitment to growing the highest quality grapes and Bernd’s commitment to capturing the full flavor of that quality through minimal intervention. High elevation, an eastern exposure, well-drained rocky soils, nearly frost-free conditions, and cooler summer days and nights all add up to grapes that can ”hang” in the vineyard until optimal ripeness is achieved.
