Information on our Wine Experiences can be found further down this page.
Reservations for Guided Wine Tastings coming in February and March will open in mid-January.
Picnic Area- Lots of picnic tables, tables with stools, and some tables and chairs to enjoy wine tasting via our Tasting-in-a-Bag, wine by the glass, and/or wine by the bottle. We have a selection of Boar’s Head meat and cheese, along with other lite fares available for purchase. Visitors may bring 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. The picnic area is closed during the winter months.
Face Coverings, Masks, Social Distancing – Please follow the current CDC and VDH guidelines during your visit.
Tasting Room & Gift Shop- Our small tasting room and gift shop is slowly being reopened to visitors. Beginning in winter 2021/2022, we will once again welcome guests to the tasting bar. It will be for wine tasting events on select days and by reservation only. Reservations can be made below for these wine tasting experiences. Joining our email list will let you be one of the first to know about these winter events.

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
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.
Out of consideration of others and due to limited space, we strongly recommend that children not be brought to any of the indoor, reservation-only wine tasting experiences.
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 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.
