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.

  • Horton Blackberry Wine NV


    Great blackberry wine. Smells so good it could be aroma therapy. Not too thick, very rich with deep berry flavors. We like to spike it with a dash of ginger ale for fizz at gatherings. Read More

  • Horton Vineyards Pear Orange County Pear Port NV


    This is the only pear port I have been able to find and thus I give it 4 "stars" for originality and good taste. We had a pear port in a similar looking bottle, tried this one and it wasn't it... however... we were happily surprised and this one is a keeper. It's super sweet and a little thick- I have been told that it's a great base for sangria! Read More

Good atmosphere and good wine. My wine taste so far has been leaning towards mostly white wines. Any advice on good places that serve/sell wine in my area and on Virginia wines wo... Read More

So in an effort to comply and, for what it's worth, share my humble knowledge of the subject, I present the following:I moved to Missouri in 1994 after having lived the prior ten years in Sonoma County, C...
