Attraction details
Owner description: CrossKeys Vineyards is a beautiful 125 acre estate with 35 acres of vineyards. This small batch, family run winery currently produces around 8,000 cases of 12 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.

“Lunch was great”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We attended a special JMU graduation lunch at the vineyard. The food was very good. We also tried some of the vineyards wine as we bought a few bottles for the table. There were tastings going on and you could also buy some wine and cheese and sit outside at tables with umbrellas. Overall a very enjoyable experience

“Beautiful winery and Good Wine”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The Winery is absolutely beautiful and has an amazing view. The hostess were very knowledgeable and engaging. Came to learn she was originally from where we currently live in PA.

The wine was good considering the age of the grape vines, which are still relatively young, when compared to some of the older wineries in Virginia. I view this as an up and coming winery well on it's way to being a premier winery in Virginia. Stop by and enjoy the wine, some cheese and soak up the amazing views!

“Wonderful place for a Winery”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Have visited Cross Keys several times and have enjoyed the experience. Sitting out on the veranda with a slight breeze blowing across the lawns, with mountains as the back drop, sipping wine and enjoying our cheese tray with our closest friend, it couldn't get any better. You don't want the afternoon to end. Great Place to relax in the afternoon! Please stop by you will not regret it.

The only 2 things i would suggest to make the day even nicer is 1. Having a big room for your tastings with leather comfortable seating, interesting art. The outside speaks of an villa in Italy but not so in the tasting area. You want it to be a experience not just same old thing. The fireplace is beautiful but cannot be enjoyed because it is in the middle of the walkways to outside and checkout.
2. When there is a wedding, my suggestion would be to create a different veranda, maybe continue it around the side of the tasting area so regular guest could enjoy their wine away from the wedding party. I loved the place!

Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback. We are thrilled to hear you enjoy visiting us often! We are actually in the works of expanding our tasting room and patio as we have grown very quickly in the past six years. Hopefully you will get a chance to visit us again in a couple of years when it is all finished!
