Valley Road Vineyards

Gateway to the Nelson 151 Trail

Located at the gateway to the Rockfish Valley on Route 151 in Albemarle County, Valley Road Vineyards opened its doors in August 2016.

Its 22 acre Afton campus affords visitors commanding Blue Ridge views and is conveniently situated in the heart of the Monticello Viticultural Area for easy guest access.

In addition to the Virginia Governor's Cup Gold Medal-winning 2014 Petit Verdot, Valley Road Vineyards offers fourteen other varietals and blends in its tasting room, “SIP,” which is open to the public six days a week (closed Tuesday). A 'Classic Tasting,' consisting of six varietals, is $10 (plus tax). Groups of eight or more are welcome with an advance, prepaid reservation; the group tasting fee is $15 per person (tax and gratuity included).

Valley Road Vineyards was conceived by a group of friends who brought talents from successful careers in law, advertising, insurance, real estate development, and writing, among others. With their mutual love of Virginia and wine, a vineyard operation in the heart of the Monticello Viticulture Area seemed a good choice for a fun and rewarding business venture. With the vineyards firmly established, the founders are looking forward to expanding into retail distribution and the debut of event space at the winery in the second half of 2018.
