Reserve your Wine Tasting Experience
Reservations for Guided Wine Tastings coming in February and March will open in mid-January.
Guarantee one of our tables in our beautiful picnic area where you may have a unique wine tasting experience with our Tasting-in-a-Bag. This option allows you to enjoy your wine tasting at your own pace with a picnic from home, or you may build a Picnic-in-a-Bag from our lite fare options. The Tasting-in-a-Bag can be preordered as an Add-on option when making your Picnic Area reservation. Alternatively, wine is available by the glass and/or by the bottle.
The picnic area will be closed from November 14, 2021 – March 31, 2022.

Vertical Wine Tasting
Periodically, we offer a vertical tasting of our red wines where we sample and discuss several vintages and sometimes conclude with a barrel tasting of the newest vintage. This tasting experience is meant to be fun, interactive, and maybe even a little educational as we will discuss how weather and winemaking can affect vintages. Included with your Vertical Tasting is a single serving charcuterie tray. To find out when this option is available visit often or signup for our email list.
Things to know before your trip to Hickory Hill Vineyards
We are an “old-school” Virginia farm winery. Our tasting room with a gift shop is small as our focus is the farm, vineyard, and winery. The picnic area has become and will remain where the majority of our visitors can enjoy our wines and hospitality.
We are reopening the tasting room to visitors. Beginning in winter 2021/2022, we plan to welcome guests to the tasting bar by reservation only. Reservations can be made above. Joining our email list will let you be one of the first to know about these events!
In April 2022, guided wine tastings in the tasting room at the bar will remain by reservation only.
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 encourage you to follow all current CDC and VDH guidelines for everyone’s safety. This includes social distancing, wearing a mask indoors and when interacting with our staff, washing/sanitizing hands, and staying home if you do not feel well.
If you prefer not to use our tables and chairs, you are welcome to bring your own chairs, blankets, and/or tables and set them up in the picnic area. There is plenty of room.
We offer a selection of premium cheese and meat by Boar’s Head along with other lite fare options to enjoy with our wines. Visitors are welcome to bring their own food or bring take out from one of our many local restaurants.
If you choose to bring 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.
Out of consideration of others and due to limited space, children should not be brought to any of the indoor, reservation-only wine tasting experiences.
Pet Policy updated in April 2021.
Well behaved, leashed (or carrier contained) pets who are current on their rabies vaccination are welcome in the picnic area during regular business hours. We reserve the right to ask any pet guardian to remove a pet that we deem is not behaving in an acceptable manner.
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 pets unattended and of course, pick up after your pet.
Pets are not allowed in the tasting room/gift shop.
Sunset Saturdays remain a no pets allowed event.
