CrossKeys Vineyards is a beautiful 125 acre estate with 35 acres of vineyards. This small batch, family run winery currently produces around 8,000 cases of 12 different wines per year that are estate grown, produced, and bottled. With the first vines planted in 2001 and our first harvest in 2006, the winery opened its doors in May of 2008. In late 2012, the CrossKeys Bistro, our onsite restaurant, was established. In addition CrossKeys hosts many events, both public and private, and of course lots of weddings.

This winery is nestled among BEAUTIFUL scenery, we sat out on the patio and the views are gorgeous! You can do wine tastings or "flights" of wine inside at the bar, the girls are very friendly & informative, and gave us flights in these mobile carriers to take outside! They have a wide variety of wines/tasting options, so if you... More

Did this on a rainy, windy day. Tuscan style building holds the tasting room, the bistro and spaces for catered events. Debby in the tasting room was a great guide for wine selection advice. The lunch we had in the bistro was very delicious. We took wine flights to the bistro and enjoyed it with our lunch. Very pleasant experience.

We visited this vineyard yesterday, as my husband loves tasting wines. It is a beautiful place, with tasting room, with small gifts and Bistro area(we did not try). We walked in and each tried wines. I bought the new Hops infused fruit d" vine, after sampling the fruit flight. All the wines taste the same with a little of the... More

I loved the place! The tasting was absolutely great, food delicious!! The tour was guided by a lady who was super friendly and explained everything to perfection. The view is just superb especially if you have lunch and wine at their terrace with that fantastic view, this place really offers the best, I'm for sure coming back for more bottles!

Crosskeys is amazing! We visited yesterday afternoon and enjoyed it immensely. The new vintage of Meritage is the best ever. Also, a new menu is in for spring and all three items we tried were delicious. (short rib sandwich, lobster salad and grilled- smoked wings) The breathtaking and peaceful views never get old. We will return again soon. DAT

After a long trip the previous day, we wanted to relax, enjoy some wine. The winery was in a beautiful area and had an outdoor area with entertainment to enjoy the wine. Unfortunately, this area overlooked the parking lot so we chose to go into the tasting room. Although it wasn't too busy, there was some confusion about who would... More

Incredible views from this location. We decided to stop here for lunch and a tasting. We had a few appetizers to share and thought everything was really good. I'd recommend the fondue- really delicious! The meat/cheese tray was good but I thought at $21 it was very overpriced for what you got. We also had the crab dip and a... More

This winery has awesome views, great food, an adorable outdoor area with plenty of seating, and ok wine. I had 2 flights and none of the wines I had were anything to write home about. The nachos, however, were delicious!

Just the patio of this place is worth the visit. Massive and expansive and overlooking the vines. It's nice to walk around this pastoral place and the wines certainly help. Virginia wine is still a quickly growing field and a lot of the wines (and winemakers) need some time to grow. However, CrossKeys doesn't disappoint. Nice solid list of whites... More
