Virginia Mountain Vineyards was established as a vineyard in the spring of 1998 with the planting of two grape varietals (Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc) totaling 3325 vines. The operation has since grown to include an additional three grape varietals (Merlot, Traminette, and Petit Verdot) bringing the vine total to 5625 over a 9.5 acre plot. Many thanks are extended to the family and friends who have helped over the years to make the vineyard a success. For several years we operated as a vineyard, selling grapes to many nearby wineries. During this same time, we were perfecting our wine production techniques, acquiring winery equipment, and making other capital investments for the planned opening of our winery. On April 1, 2006 we officially opened to the public as a winery offering 8 different wines. Beginning in 2007 we began to release several of our full-bodied red wines, bringing the total to 11 wines. For the 2008 year, we released an additional red wine blend, brining our total offering to 12 Read more »

  • V V - Yes, we were at the Afton Mountain Vineyards a few months ago (August) when we drove down to Charlottesville and stayed at a Bed & Breakfast.  Pictures are on this web page:  http://www.bigal-computers.net/Virginia-Wine-2014.php  I had posted this in the 'Weekend Wines' thread.  It's too bad your bottle went bad; I always wonder how well t...

  • You guys should attend this tasting.  We've been to Breaux, Sunset Hills and Barboursville vineyards.  Of those, Barboursville might be the best.  We still have Veritas and Afton Mountain on our 'to do' list.  Make sure you get a taste of Octagon from Barboursville. Read More

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • Hi everyone.  My wife Sandra and I have been into wine for the past few years and that's led to a few trips to Napa Valley and related areas in 2012 and 2013.  We enjoy all wines but reds are our favorites.  We hosted our first wine tasting party last night and it was a fun event - sixteen wine lovers trying different wines in a blind tasting.  ...

  • My family and I are brand new to wines, having bought a couple of books and deciding to make a bit of an adventure out of this. We live in a smallish town and haven't been able to find a good local wine shop, so we sort of started in our grocery stores. It's been a bit overwhelming, a bit expensive, and finally kind of frustrating trying to find... Read More
