Barboursville Vineyards & Palladio Restaurant

Well if you can't make it to Italy right now, try a weekend getaway at Barboursville Vineyards.
As the birthplace of American viticulture, Virginia has been cultivating and producing wine grapes for more than four centuries and now has about 140 wineries. To witness where some of the state's finest wines are made, head to Barboursville Vineyards, just 20 minutes outside of Charlottesville. Tour the winery, taste its award-winning varietals, enjoy a gourmet meal at its Palladio Restaurant, and walk the grounds to see ruins of a home designed by Thomas Jefferson. As a bonus, the drive there passes through some of the state's most beautiful farmland.

Tasting & Tours
Let us welcome you to our TASTING ROOM, the centerpiece of many a visit to Barboursville Vineyards. In the style of a Northern Italian farmhouse we greet you with a roaring fire in our double-sided fireplace in winter, and covered loggias in the warm season. Here you can sample more than 15 of our award winning wines, select wine books and accessories in our gift shop, or just relax at a table or on lawns overlooking the vineyards and the Blue Ridge, with your favorite wine.

Let us offer you a tour of our modern winery on Saturday and Sunday, free, including an introduction to the history of Barboursville. Or take a self-guided tour of the Historic Ruins of Governor Barbour's Mansion, a short stroll from the winery.

A Virginia historic landmark, the Ruins overlook an expansive, classic estate park framed in ancient boxwoods, a beautiful area for picnics, strolling, or simply listening to the stream flowing past, imparting the serenity of centuries in this place.

We are open for wine tasting Monday-Saturday, 10am-5pm, and Sunday 11am-5pm. The $4 tasting fee includes an inscribed glass and entitles you to a tasting of 16-20 wines, several offered only at the winery. On your next visit, bring your souvenir glass and there is no charge for tasting.
