Afton Mountain Vineyards has produced award-winning wines for decades.
We offer premium dry wines from vinifera grapes and we hope that your enjoyment of our wines matches our passion for
making them.

Pinot Noir

A delicate Burgundy-style wine, our Pinot Noir includes fruit from vines originally planted in 1978.

Cabernet Franc

The Cabernet Franc is a medium-bodied wine with dark cherry and other fruit characters.


This wine is chosen from our favorite barrels and is always a well-structured and age-worthy wine.

Festa di Bacco

This super-Tuscan style red is a blend of Sangiovese with Merlot and the other Bordeaux grapes; they add color and structure to the bright fruit of the Sangiovese. Always a customer favorite and a versatile food-pairing wine.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Cab Sauv includes grapes from our 35+ year-old vines, some of the oldest vines in Virginia. A dry red that's full-bodied and is good with traditional red wine pairings.

Petit Verdot

The small berries of Petit Verdot result in the deepest color and tannin structure of our reds. A big wine now and always worthy of time in your cellar.


Italian for “tiny bubbles” this Brut sparkling wine is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, made in the traditional champagne method. Crisp, dry and delicious.


A limited production estate-grown white available only in the summer months.


Our Estate Reserve Chardonnay is made from 100% Estate fruit and is fermented and aged in French White Oak for 10 months. The perfect balance of delicate oak, butter and crisp, fresh fruit.


As the German word for “spice” suggests, our Gewurz is an aromatic and versatile food-pairing wine. Always a customer favorite, this wine is dry with just a hint of lime and sweetness.


Slightly sweet, mellow and delicious, this is an estate-grown wine of limited production. Typically available in the summer months only.

Mountain White

This is a wine made from Vidal Blanc grapes. It is a nice, sweeter patio wine.


Rosé is made from Cabernet Franc. It is dry, fruity and refreshing.
