FIFTY-THIRD Winery and Vineyards (written Jun 22, 2013)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
Without a doubt, this is the best winery I have been to in Virginia. The Norton is what brought me here, but there are other outstanding examples of what Virginia offers. The wines offered exhibit the best that Virginia can grow. The winery is also easily accessible to I-64.

Horton Cellars Winery (written Jun 22, 2013)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
The wines here are quite enjoyable. Their Vionier was quite good as expected, as well as their Norton. As I've tasted elsewhere, Norton makes and outstanding Port, and theirs was no different.

Barboursville Vineyards (written Jun 22, 2013)
Wine: 2 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
This is supposed to be Virginia's most awarded winery. After visiting, I know why. The customers were continually being told by the servers what made the wines great, leaving the drinker no way to decide for themselves. I wasn't fooled. I wasn't impressed when they told me of the Italian immigrants that planted Italian vines here. Notice - this isn't Italy. The wines at best were mediocre. If you want Italian wine, go to the local wine store and you can get something much better. If they want to make better wine, instead of imposing foreign vines upon this soil, find out what works first! Ok, having said all of that, the Nebbelio was good, but their award winning Octogon wasn't.

Rockbridge Vineyard (written Jun 22, 2013)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
I visited this winery many years ago, and I'm glad to say that it has improved. They are committed to correct viticulture in the state, planting and growing what works the best their. I am a little ashamed that I didn't buy a bottle of their Norton, but I'm committed to buying what I consider the winery's best. I am not a huge fan of Dessert wines, but their V d'or was absolutely wonderful - double gold medals at the Finger Lakes contest.
