Located in Fauquier County, the town of Delaplane is at the heart of Virginia wine country. With several unique wineries, it can be difficult to choose between which one to experience. As your local real estate expert (and vino enthusiast) I’ve selected a few of my absolute favorite places to enjoy a glass in Delaplane.
Enjoy the incredible natural scenery and a glass of Virginia’s best at any of these regionally acclaimed wineries.
Barrel Oak Winery
Recognized as the “Most Family Friendly Winery in the World”, Oak Barrel Winery has been a community hotspot since it opened in 2008. Children are given a juice box to sip on as their parents taste their award-winning grape blends, and encouraged to explore the scenic grounds.
Dogs are also more than welcome at Oak Barrel, with the owner’s own, Birch, running around the property a frequent sight. “The more, the merrier”, is the motto at this winery- bring your family and friends to one of their weekly events!
Aspen Dale Winery at The Barn
Combining the two things that Delaplane is known for, wine and horses, Aspen Dale Winery at the Barn provides a unique winery experience! Enjoy tasting their Eastern Seaboard Competition-winning Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon blanc wines while strolling around the barn. A fully operational farm, Aspen Dale has two resident miniature horses that love to be admired.
Complete your winery experience with their farm to table fare, and take comfort knowing that the food is just as celebrated as the wines.
Heavily inspired by the land in which it grows its grapes, RdV Vineyards takes great pride in being a Virginia winery. Each of their 30,000 vines is hand cared for, and painstakingly looked after. Specializing in Bordeaux-style blends, RdV has truly mastered their trade with single-minded determination and tenacity.
Enjoy an in-depth tour with complimentary cheese pairing for a peek behind the passion, or explore the scenic grounds for yourself!
Nestled on Lost Mountain, Delaplane Cellars is home to breathtaking scenery, and even better wines! Delaplane Cellars philosophy is that “less is more”, which extends to both its grapes and property.
Sit on the terrace and immerse yourself in the views of mountain ranges for miles, or take part in one of their weekly events that include live music and food demonstrations. Either way, you’ll be sipping a wine that has been so barely inferred with, it might as well have just come off the vine.
