As one of Virginia’s oldest and largest wineries, we’ve been welcoming visitors for over 30 years. In fact, we were named one of the “Top 3 Virginia Wine Day Trip Destinations“ by Yahoo! Voices in 2012! We were also recommended as one of the best Virginia wineries for picnics by the editors of Touring & Tasting Magazine in 2012. (Read more reviews on our Press Mentions page.)
We offer a number of activities that will make your visit memorable:
Tastings: We currently offer self-guided tasting flights which include a tasting of 5 wines and a souvenir glass. Choose from red, white or mixed. We produce nearly 20 different wines so you are sure to find something to please almost any palette! (Check out our Awards page to see our recent awards.)
Tours: Interested to learn more about how our wine gets from the vineyard to your glass? Take a leisurely and entertaining tour to discover our history as one of Virginia’s oldest wineries and learn about our winemaking process. Our tour will add an extra dimension to your wine tasting. Winery tours are available throughout the day and are free.
Courtyard: Our beautiful outdoor European courtyard with a fountain in the center offers plenty of space to enjoy a glass of wine with some cheeses and sausage from our gift shop. Or bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy! In cold or rainy weather, we have additional seating under cover in our indoor Pavilion.
Museum: While you are here, be sure to visit our museum which features antique wine bottles, Native American artifacts and Chesapeake waterfowl decoys.
Gift Shop: Love to shop? Our extensive gift shop covers two rooms and has been described as “one of the nicest at a Virginia winery.” It features wine accessories, decorative gift items, Ingleside logo apparel, books, gourmet food items and more! You can also purchase gourmet cheeses and sausages to enjoy with a glass of wine in our courtyard.
Events: We host numerous wine events throughout the year, including our Jazz in the Courtyard event and our annual Harvest Celebration. These events frequently sell out so we recommend advance reservations. (Join our Email List and be the first to hear about upcoming events.)
