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.
We love pets! Unfortunately, due to a few VERY irresponsible pet guardians, we no longer allow visitor’s pets on the estate.
Trained Service Animals are welcome.
We do not allow emotional support or companion animals as they do not meet the definition of Trained Service Animal and do not have the same public access rights.
