We actually really like Horton wines, including their Norton, Viognier, and Cabernet Franc. Sampling them at Horton, however, is pretty underwhelming.

We enjoyed the wine here more than other vineyards nearby. However, it was not scenic and did not have outdoor space.

I found this Winery on a previous trip to Virginia cause I loved the building almost looks like a castle. They have a good list of wines to choose from and they have a great selection on Sweet wines which are hard for me to find. The Sweet Concord and Freedom have a great taste and I end up getting...

I was hesitant to visit based on some prior reviews, but I am so glad I did! The customer service has truly improved, the location was lovely and the wines were delicious. I can't wait to go back and replenish my stock.

GPS kept leading us away from this vineyard for some reason. Glad we persisted and found it! You get to sample 10 wines of your choice. They have a wide selection of 40+. They had some of the most delicious reds on our trip this weekend and we visited 7 wineries. They had wonderful chocolate wines (white & red) which... More

When you first pull in the grounds and the building look fairly nice. The tasting room itself is unremarkable, and I cannot say I was all that impressed by the staff in the tasting room in terms of their product knowledge. Red wines were in general light and unremarkable. Similar to some other Va wineries I've visited maybe they want... More

We stopped here on a wine tasting tour of the area. It's a fairly large facility if you're in a bigger group. They have 48 wines and you can select any combination of 10 to try, which is a little different from the typical wine tastings in the area. And with a list of 48, it's almost over whelming to...

My friends and I accidentally stumbled across Horton Winery while driving to our annual retreat in Buckingham County. They have a great looking building as well as wine! Our favorite was the Freedom and Niagara wines.
