Gift Shop, Tasting Room & Picnic Area
What to Expect
Spring 2021 operations
The picnic area will be open for the season beginning March 27 through April from 12-5 pm on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Beginning on May 1, 2021, operating hours expand to Wednesday through Sunday from 12-5 pm. Online orders are still available for curbside pickup, local delivery, or shipping. You may browse our wine selection and multipack specials here.
Picnic Area- open to groups up to 6 to enjoy wine tasting flights, by the glass, and by the bottle sales. We have a selection of Boar’s Head meat and cheese, along with other lite fare available for purchase. Visitors may pack their own picnic items as well. Please, no outside alcohol. It is against VA ABC regulations. Picnic area reservations are not required but are encouraged, especially on rainy days due to the limited covered seating. Reservations can be made a little further down on this page. If your group is more than 6, please contact us prior to your visit.
Face Coverings, Masks, Social Distancing – When interacting with visitors, our staff will be wearing a face mask to keep you safe, we ask that you do the same when not at your table, and especially when interacting with staff or someone outside your of your group. Please practice the 6′ social distancing with staff and other visitors. We know everyone has Pandemic Fatigue (us too!), but for a while longer please join us in doing our part to put this behind us.
Tasting Room – wine tastings at our bar in the tasting room are not permitted at this time.
Gift Shop – The gift shop is closed for browsing. We are working on a virtual gift shop. Stay tuned!
Children- Children are welcome at Hickory Hill. They must observe proper social distancing; thus, they should remain with their parents/guardians at their table rather than wandering the grounds.
Pets- Beginning in April 2021, we have changed our pet policy. Well behaved, leashed (or carrier contained) pets who are current on their rabies vaccination are welcome in the picnic area during regular business hours. Be prepared to show the rabies certificate either physically or electronically. (We know this seems extreme, but previous, irresponsible pet owners/guardians are to blame!) Do not leave the pets unattended and of course, pick up after your pet. Sunset Saturdays remain a no pets allowed event.

Things to know before your trip to Hickory Hill Vineyards
Per VA ABC regulations, outside alcohol is NOT permitted on the premises. This includes but is not limited to wine previously purchased here, other local wines, wine, beer, wine coolers, cider, hard liquor, sparkling wine. Coolers are subject to inspection. Anyone violating this VA ABC regulation will be asked to leave immediately. PLEASE do not try to sneak it in, as violations can cost us hefty fines and may lead to revocation of our winery license leading to permanent closure, and we like doing what we do!
We offer a selection of premium cheese and meat by Boar’s Head along with other lite fare options to enjoy with our award-winning wines. We do welcome visitors to bring their own food. If you choose to bring your own food, please follow these simple rules:
- Food brought from home is to be enjoyed in our picnic area, not the tasting room.
- Please pick up after your picnic. We have trash receptacles as well as recycling bins. If you have more than our bins can hold, please ask for a trash bag (or bring one) so we can keep the grounds tidy for everyone.
We welcome children!
Just keep in mind that this is a working farm and children should be closely supervised at all times.
