Covid-19 and Safety Protocols
We remain vigilant in keeping a safe space for our customers and staff and welcome patrons to wear masks irrespective of vaccination when moving about the tasting room indoors. As for any other policies, we follow the latest CDC guidance for Loudoun County

Friendly pets are welcome at the Wine Reserve (but not inside the itty bity tasting room). Please remember to clean up after your pet.

Sampling Wine / Tastings
We have a pretty darn tiny tasting bar which isn’t well-equipped for guided tastings. Fear not, in addition to glass and bottle sales we do offer rotating self-guided tasting flights featuring six pre-determined wines for $20. The wine flights are made to order and offered for you to enjoy at your own pace. (We are always happy to pour a sample of a wine before you commit to a glass/botte.)

We are also currently in a “beta roll out” of our return to guided tastings. Guided tastings are subject to availability and may vary by day based on capacity. Check with staff upon your arrival if interested in this soft relaunch of guided tastings. Guided tastings include five wines and cost $25.

We are a smoke-free property. Please refrain from smoking, vaping, and whatever the kids are doing these days while in the tasting room and on the outdoor grounds of the property.

Online Orders / Pickup
Online orders for pickup continue to be available. Any orders or wine club pickups can be collected during normal operating hours. Feel free to email via for any requests outside our regular business hours.

Wine Flights
We do offer self-guided tasting flights which allow you to enjoy six wines at your own pace and from the comfort of your private seating location.
