Wisteria LogoWe are open Thursday through Monday from 12 until 6 p.m. We are located at 1126 Marksville Rd, Stanley, VA and our phone number is 540-742-1489.  Groups of 8 or more, please call ahead to help make it a more enjoyable experience for all!  As a farm, we ask that you please leave your pet at home when you come to visit us - we're happy to share our dogs with you while you are our guest!

Thank you for visiting our site.  We are located in the Shenandoah Valley in Page county, known for its rural character and scenic beauty, between the towns of Luray and Stanley.  Our small farm winery is nestled on the western slope of the Blue Ridge mountains.  This is a working farm and vineyard; we also have a flock of natural-colored Romney sheep as well as free-roaming chickens for your viewing pleasure while picnicking and enjoying your wine!

       Upcoming Events (see below for a full listing of events)

March is Virginia Wine & Dine Month – As part of the celebration we will offer one free wine tasting for two cans of non-perishable goods.  The food items will be donated to our local food bank at Page One.  Offer good throughout the month of March; no limit to the number of days, although only one tasting per day!

April 4 – Our Wine and Ewe Shearing Day from 10 until ... with refreshments.  While the grapes are just starting to wake up, the rest of the farm is alive and kicking! Shearing begins around 10 a.m. and continues until the last sheep is sheared (usually around noon)! Hot drinks and snacks will be served and the tasting room will be open.

We invite you to come out and enjoy a day in the country.  Bring a picnic and wander around the farm and vineyard or just sit on our deck, enjoying the wine and the surroundings.  In the colder months, warm yourself by the fireplace in the tasting room or one of our outdoor heaters or fire pits.  We offer free wi-fi for our friends while you are enjoying your wine on the deck or in the tasting room.

We'd love to have you join our extended family, either as a Wine Club Member or a "Friend of the Winery"!  See this link on our Facebook page for more details.  If you are interested in joining us, just shoot us an email or let us know the next time you come by!



Our farm dates from the 1890s, although we are the first to grow grapes here. Our tasting room is an addition to the original house, a lovely Victorian.  Our vineyard is located on a very old creek bed and is extremely porous and rocky, which helps the grapevines thrive. 

We follow sustainable agriculture practices, and strive to be good stewards of the land.  All of our trellising is made from cedars grown on our property which we had to clear to make way for the vineyard - no treated posts and recycling at its best!

We believe a great wine comes from great grapes.  To that end, we spend most of our time in the vineyard, tending the grapes.  We pick them at the optimal time to allow the wine to achieve it's highest potential on it's own with minimal interference from the winemaker. 

All of our wine is crafted from 100% Virginia-grown grapes.  Our goal is that they will eventually all be from estate-grown grapes.  Our offerings include Pinot Gris (estate), Chardonnay, Viognier, Traminette, Seyval (estate), Vidal, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Carmine (estate), and Norton (estate).  We also offer three semi-sweet blends (Velvet, Ashtaroot, and Adonis) and a dessert wine (Sweet Daisy).  The regular tasting fee is $8 for eight wines and includes a souvenir glass.

We can also ship within the state of Virginia and other selected states; if you would like to order our wine, just send an email to info@wisteriavineyard.com!

May 23 - Spring Planting of the Grapes  Want to see how the whole wine making process starts while enjoying a day in the country? Come out and join us for our Spring Planting Day! Don't worry, the hard work (digging the holes) will already be done for you, just the fun part is left. We will start planting in the morning, so come out and join us throughout the day. All volunteers will receive a free tasting and 10% off any purchases in the tasting room.

Once the grapes have been picked, the stomping begins! If you've ever wondered what it's like to stomp grapes like Lucy or just see the process of turning grapes into wine, this is your chance! We'll also provide lunch for our volunteers as well as a vertical tasting. The date is dependent on the grapes and Mother Nature, so be sure to check our website or give us a call ahead of time.
