The Barboursville 18th Century wine estate is a breathtaking climax to a beautiful and historic country drive from any direction. It’s accessible just 2 hours outside of Washington DC.

The winery’s Tuscan Tasting Room, our hospitality center, is open every day of the year except Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.


The entire estate is open for tasting our wines in a stroll or in a picnic, and our informed and enthusiastic hosts conduct tastings continuously in the Tuscan Tasting Room, every day of the week, and in Library 1821 on Friday through Monday. The Tasting Room is where the broadest range of our current vintages is introduced, while the Library 1821 presents a changing selection of flights of older vintages from our cellars, and with bite-sized culinary pairings designed by our chefs. Every encouragement is given, also, to enjoying our wines in the truly splendid lawns surrounding the historic Landmark Ruins of Thomas Jefferson's mansion for Governor James Barbour, a pleasant stroll away.

There is a fee of $10.00 for tastings of seventeen of our current vintages. For $3.00 more, you can keep your brilliant Weißwein Vin Blanc Crystal Glass, hand chosen by our wine maker, Luca Paschina.

Tasting Price: $10.00


Guided tours of the winery are offered, on Saturday and Sunday, and first-time visitors are especially encouraged to allow the extra time for this introduction to our estate history and winemaking processes. The Octagon Barrel Room presents a permanent exhibition of the biography of our signature wine, and the brief film about the estate is shown throughout the day.

Guests may guide themselves on a tour of the Landmark Ruins, one of Jefferson's true architectural masterpieces. In its elegant Palladian proportions and siting on a gentle knoll, the house unmistakably recalls Jefferson's own, and deeply refreshes our appreciation of structural balance in wine. We warmly recommend a visit.
