Tasting Room & Picnic Area
We invite you to visit Hickory Hill Vineyards, Virginia’s 75th farm winery. Our tasting room and gift shop are located in a 1923 farmhouse. The original sleeping porch was replaced with a modest tasting room in 2001 and the kitchen was converted into a quaint gift shop. The rural, plain-and-simple life the house observed when it was new continues today. When you visit, plan to relax and slow down a bit.
Our wine experiences include traditional guided wine tastings, a flight of four (your choice), a full-tasting flight, wine by the glass, or wine by the bottle. We carry charcuterie and cheese along with other light fare to pair with the wine. The tasting room has limited indoor seating; thus, the picnic area is where the majority of visitors enjoy The Furrows’ hospitality and their award-winning wines.
Since we are a family-run farm winery our operating hours are seasonal. Please refer to the calendar below for days and times the farm is open to the public.
We are always open for curbside pickup, local delivery, and shipping of online orders.
Reservations are available for up to 6 people for indoor Guided Wine Tastings.
For groups of 7 – 14, you can now reserve online for an indoor Guided Wine Tasting Experience.
Things to know before your visit
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 enjoy our wines and hospitality.
Walk-ins are welcome. Reservations are available.
Groups over 14 in number and Organized celebrations (birthday parties, showers, reunions, etc.) should contact the tasting room staff to discuss options and make reservations. This will not only improve your group’s experience but also the experience of other winery visitors. It will also help with maintaining the staff’s sanity. Thank you for your cooperation.
Groups 7-14 wishing to enjoy an indoor Guided Wine Tasting can now make a reservation on this website. Booking is available on this page above this note.
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 charcuterie and cheese 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 takeout 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 by an adult at all times.
Out of consideration for 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.
No pets are allowed at Sunset Saturdays and Charity Cheers events.
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.
