Wine lover and entrepreneur Dennis Horton began his winemaking venture with a small home vineyard in Madison County, Virginia in 1983. It did not take him long to realize that, although the Virginia summers were warm enough to ripen almost any grape variety, the humid conditions favored growing grapes with thicker skins and loose clusters. There began the search for varieties that would flourish in Virginia’s climate and had the capacity to produce some of the finest wines of the world.

  • Over the years I have visited Horton Vineyards, tasted many of their wines & have some favorites. However, on July 3, 2011, I traveled there again with 4 people who had never visited the winery.
