Blue Valley is one of the best wineries in Northern Virginia, and even better, we’re one of just a handful of family-owned wineries in the state, which gives our secluded little slice of paradise a cozier, more intimate feel than many of the other wineries in the area you may visit.
If you’ve never been to Blue Valley before, the views will absolutely take your breath away, and if you’re a history buff, you’ll love the story behind the land that Blue Valley sits on; as a hint and a sneak preview, we purchased the land from a much larger estate that once belonged to the fourth Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court!
Of course, gorgeous views and an interesting history are a good starting point, but by themselves, those things aren’t what make us one of the best wineries in Northern Virginia. That honor goes to the wines we produce and if you decide to join us for a wine tasting, you’re in for a real treat. Here are just a few of the vintages you’ll have the opportunity to sample:
This wonderful vintage is made from a blend of estate grown Chambourcin (75%) combined with Vidal Blanc (25%) with 2.4% residual sugar. It features opening flavors of blueberry, raspberry and a hint of oak. If served chilled, it will enhance the acidity and bring out hints of citrus and crab apple flavors.
