CrossKeys Vineyards is a beautiful 125 acre estate with 25 acres of vineyards. This small batch, family run winery currently produces around 4,000 cases of 11 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.

Beautiful setting. Had something for everyone. My friends like sweet I like dry and we each got sampling to suit our taste. Pleasant staff and fun stories of the grapes history. Would definitely go back and check out the Bistro for a snack

One of the best rural vintners location we have visited. Here on a sunny early fall day with sunshine and wine tasting. We stayed for some appetizers, tapas style, and were not disappointed. Staff worked and and were beginning to look a little frazzled but kept up the good cheer and persevered. Out door seating was perfect, however we went... More

Participated in one of their tastings which was very nice. They have several tasting options to choose from. But their bistro/café restaurant for lunch was awesome. Beautiful fireplace inside and gorgeous dining outside on the patio overlooking the vineyard. The food was fresh, local and delicious. Hope they keep the chef...they have a gold mine there. Wish I lived nearby... More

Visited CrossKeys Vineyard on October 24 while visiting family in the area. The Vineyard and property are gorgeous. The tour was very enjoyable and informative. The wines are very good, but not great. I felt they were a little higher priced, especially for the Meritage. I would recommend the Joy White as my favorite and I also purchased the Merlot.... More

Enjoyed the wine tasting with beatiful views. Their winew was excellant. My favorite was Joy White but did get a bottle of the peach wine too. It was so relaxing sitting on the deck looking out at the fall colors of Massanutten Mountain. We will be back for another testing.

Enjoy a nice glass of wine while you take in the beautiful views of the rolling hills on a sunny day...a great way to spend an afternoon. Do yourself a favor and bring a spouse or friend to this winery on a nice day. There is something about sitting on their sun-splashed patio (with a glass of wine in-hand), that... More

Our wine tender, Jessica Reynold, was by far the best wine tender we've ever met! She truly made our wine tasting experience at Crosskeys extraordinary. Besides the outstanding wines and scenery, she really knew everything about the vineyard, the wines and ways to use them in ways we never would have imagined ourselves. My favorite wine was their Merlot and... More

CrossKeys is an excellent winery. Every wine tasted was excellent! We had a group of seven with a wide range of tastes. Every wine was superb! Everyone in the group was greatly satisfied. I have visited over 200 wineries in Virginia and this is among the top if not the top winery. We were seated outside with an astonishing view.... More

My husband and I did a wine tasting at CrossKeys Vineyard. The girl that poured our wine was a bit "over the top" personality-wise, but did a good job explaining the wines. It was a bit chilly and windy outside and the Bistro was hosting a wedding party, so we weren't "allowed" to eat inside the Bistro (we were starving... More
