Welcome to Nelson County


The Virginia Wine community has always grown together – through rainy seasons, collaborative efforts, experimenting with new varietals – all in the pursuit of pouring a delicious wine into your glass. During this unprecedented crisis, we hope that a taste of Virginia will bring you ease and familiarity, and fill you with a sense of camaraderie when supporting a local business.
Here’s how you can be a part of #vawinetogether.
