Sharp Rock Vineyards


Sharp Rock Vineyards & Cottages,  located on the Hughes River at the foot of Old Rag Mountain, is one of the most beautiful vineyard locations in Virginia.

The History

Sharp Rock Farm was established in the late 1700’s as a working family farm and we continue that tradition today with our vineyards, winery, and Bed & Breakfast cottages.

The first vineyards were planted in 1992 consisting of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc with additions soon after of Merlot, Malbec, and Sauvignon Blanc. Our last plantings were of Petit Verdot and Vidal. It is from these eight varietals that we make our twelve estate wines.

The winery opened in the Fall of 1998 and since then, Sharp Rock has selectively entered national and international wine competitions and won over 100 medals. Come visit us in our renovated barn tasting room and experience Sharp Rock Vineyards.

Taste our wines, meander through the vineyards, settle at a picnic table or hammock, absorb the exceptional scenery, and sample our gourmet cheeses, bread, and summer sausage.  If you prefer, bring along your picnic lunch and enjoy it in the vineyard or by the river.

Sharp Rock welcomes couples, families, and friendly people of all kinds to our farm. Experience our peaceful surroundings, spectacular scenery, and country hospitality.

Sharp Rock Vineyards takes great pride in being a small, artisan winery crafting 12 award-winning wines each year from fruit that is hand-selected and picked from its own carefully tended vineyards. Their secret is in the use of old-world wine making techniques, those sadly lost in history and large enterprise. Sharp Rock stresses balance and a minimalist style, to create wine reflecting our unique mountainside location.

Each wine is made in small lots, hand-bottled, and sold here in our renovated 100-year-old barn winery and tasting room. Our wine selection is diverse and includes crisp Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, fruity and bright Rosés, dry oak reds like our Petit Verdot and Malbec, and lightly sweet Chamois blends.

Each wine is fine art, like a precision cut diamond and is available for a limited period during the year. Those that KNOWN buy when they can!

Sharp Rock has attained the following recent awards

  • Highest-rated Virginia Chardonnay — 2009 New York Wine Competition
  • Sauvignon Blanc — International Award Winner, 12 consecutive years
  • Malbec, Old Rag Red and Rosé — Yearly International Awards Winners
