We are a family-owned and operated farm winery, located just north of Richmond VA. A refreshing change from the ordinary! Our staff serves a tasting of wines from whites to delicious reds and dessert wines in a tranquil country setting. Enjoy a picnic on our beautifully landscaped patio or capture the view from the terrace. James Batterson, winemaker, creates all wines from Virginia grown grapes.

The location and set up of the winery is very nice. While off a busy road and near the 295 loop, you still feel tucked away and peaceful. The winery is set back from the road and has a very nice garden area to the...More
