No matter when you come, there’s plenty to see. The scenery is fantastic since the winery is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains which offer fabulous vistas in every direction and the grounds themselves are gloriously and meticulously maintained.
Blue Valley is one of only a handful of family owned wineries in the state of Virginia and in the more than two decades we’ve been producing fine wines, our vintages have won thousands of awards with more being collected each year. To give you an idea of what you have to look forward to, here are some brief descriptions of the Virginia Rose wines we have on offer:
The 2018 Estate Rose
A complex rose gold wine with aromas of white pepper, pomegranate, watermelon and rind, this vintage won silver medals at both the San Francisco Wine Competition and the INDY International Wine Competition.
The 2018 Estate Chambourcin Rose
This wine is a true gem, featuring flavors of candied fruit with the aromas of wet bluestone, red cherry and pomegranate suffusing it.
