Tasting Experiences

Virginia Dare Winery brings to life the myths, people, and history of American winemaking, celebrating a heritage that goes back more than 400 years. We make American wine the way it’s always been made: by taking the best the land has to give us and nurturing the quality and character of our fruit from vineyard to bottle. We are pleased to offer unique wine experiences hosted by our educated staff.

Reservations are required for groups of 12 or more. Please contact Guest Services at (707)735-3500 or
