Opened in 2012, the Barns at Hamilton Station Vineyards gets rave reviews for its friendly service and comfy rustic ambiance.
There are many seating options in the massive restored 100-year-old wood and stone “bank barn” that houses the tasting room. These include an outside upper deck and a lower patio.
The view takes in acres of manicured fields and a pond in the distance. These vistas are framed by the surrounding woodline.
Weddings and private events are a major part of the Barns at Hamilton Station business. Wedding preparations include all the little details. These include everything from flower petals strewn along the bride’s path to the corks anchoring the tables’ place cards. It is a venue that promise a memorable event.
The owners are working with respected Virginia winemaker Michael Shaps and wines are shaping up nicely. The winery was bottling Chardonnay, Viognier, Cab Franc, Meritage, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and a dry Rose.
Live music jazzes things up every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Picnics welcome outside the tasting room.
Dogs on a leash are welcome.
Limos are welcome but no parking is available.
