Wine Tasting in Front Royal


Select Local Merchants

  • Rappahannock Cellars
    Vintage Piedmont unites a grandiose group of family wineries, each cozily sprawled within a 15-mile distance of the others. Ernest oenophiles can mosey among them at their own pace, ensuring no one exhausts their seeing-eye elephant. Barrel Oak Winery boasts a pastoral setting, 20 acres of vines, and a BowHaus white that blends vidal blanc, sauvignon, viognier, and more for a bright flavor ($24). At Philip Carter Winery, the 2009 chardonnay intermixes lemon zest, a vanilla bouquet, and pear notes ($24). Desert Rose Ranch & Winery sustains an unpretentious atmosphere, unlike snobbish grape groups for third cousins of royalty. Varietals include the Hitch Hollow chardonnay aged in French oak barrels, or the Sparky, a European-style ros?. Rappahannock Cellars and Hume Vineyards regale taste buds with delectable drinks from locally grown grapes. At each libation station, take home two commemorative wine glasses and receive 10% off bottles of wine.

  • Barrel Oak Winery
    “If you could see yourself doing something else, what would it be?" It was 2004 when Brian Roeder asked his wife, Sharon, that question. Two years later, the answer came when the two planted the very first vine on the Delaplane farmstead, starting what would become Barrel Oak Winery. That initial vine multiplied and grew into a 26-acre vineyard full of American and French hybrids, which the winemakers use to make their wines, everything from seyval blancs to cabernet francs. The Roeders and their team have since gone on to win hundreds of awards. Wine Enthusiast even named it one of the Six Top Family-Friendly Wineries in the world because there's something to do for pretty much everyone. With the Piedmont countryside as their backdrop, families taste wine (kids sip juice), tour the production area, listen to music out on the patio, stroll across the grounds, and unpack picnics brought from home. There's a place for dogs, too, who are welcome at the winery as long as they stay on their leashes and promise not to brag about their superior ability to sniff out flavor notes. Barrel Oak Winery actually has its own pup on staff—Birch. And many of its wines even have canine-inspired labels and names; two popular varieties include Chocolate Lab and BOWhaus White.
