About Barboursville Vineyards

Barboursville Vineyards sits in an area surrounded by history. It is located just eight miles from the home of James Madison, Montpelier, and twenty miles north of Monticello that was home to Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Barbour built his home there in the mid 17th century, and it is now the setting for the winery that has been in business since 1976. The people at Barboursville succeeded at doing what Thomas Jefferson tried and failed to do – growing great grapes. From these grapes they make nearly two dozen different wines.

What a dog and pony show! No relaxation here, just pure unadulterated sales push. Tasted quite a few wines and in a blind tasting with my wife, I chose the $35 Petit Verdot and my wife selected the $55 Octagon wine. Good enough to purchase? Left with a Petit Verdot Blanc and a pot holder as a souvenir of getting out of this place alive and with our wallets still in tact. It was amazing how they pushed through so many people. $7.00 fee for tasting does not apply to wine purchase(s).

Depending on where you are coming from, the village of Barboursville can be reached using either State Route 20 or 33. Both are scenic drives through the rolling hills and horse farms of the Virginia Piedmont. The village sits at the intersection of these two routes and at the foot of Southwestern Mountain. Look for the winery signs as you enter this small community, and you will be directed to turn onto Governor Barbour Street and then Vineyard Road. It’s not very far before you reach the gate of Barboursville Vineyards, but be vigilant. I’ve driven past it more ... Read full review
