“Rustic feel”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

What I liked about Sharp Rock is the very personal feel. This was our last winery for the day, as part of a weekend bachelorette party. Although they were about to close for the day, the staff did not make us feel unwelcome; in fact, they accomodate our group and patiently answered our questions. By the way, the tasting room is upstairs, not on the ground floor. When you enter the building, you initially think you've entered a storage area because what you first see are the wine barrels. Sharp Rock is a nice place to just hang out and enjoy the wine. It feels very peaceful. I would come back again.

“Great Wine and Beautiful Setting.”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

We stopped by on a Cold Saturday in Feb and were surprised by the beauty and friendliness. The owner did our tasting so we learned everything about each wine. We had a great conversation with him and felt very welcome. We had a hard time picking which wines to purchase as everything we tasted was above average and most unique.

“Waiting for Columbus”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

Stayed at the B&B in the Carriage House mid week, so had a quiet time there. Place is rustic and you feel you have stepped away from the real world in a good way. We were off the grid! No cell coverage or Wifi. It was a nice feeling. Carriage house completely comfortable, the air conditioning was actually quieter than a Hampton Inn we had stayed at the night before. Breakfast was good fresh fruit and a fresh warm cinnamon cake that you eat in your cottage. Jimm the owner did it all and provided us great insight to the workings of the winery, and gave us a fresh pressed cup of chardonnay juice from a recent pressing that was fantastic. His wine catalog is mostly dry wines that are completely representative of that area of Virginia. Very good, and better pricing than larger winerys nearby that focus more on curb appeal. Would definitely visit again. Came back home to PA via Skyline drive and a small bear crossed the road in front of us in the middle of the day. So cool. Ate at Thortons, and visited Copper Fox Distillery (Get the Rye). Neat to have a small place like this where you have both the winery and BB in one stop for a reasonable price, along with a very friendly host.

“Lovely Location”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

This was a small winery and the tasting was conducted by the owner. I really enjoyed the experience because it was not an enormous place. I would definitely go back just to sit on the porch and look at the scenery. This is close to the Conyers House Inn and Stable.

“Great escape!”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

A great location, great wines and a superb host make for a wonderful rustic, "unplugged" getaway. We've been several times now to the winery and B&B and will keep coming back for the quiet ambiance, wines and hospitality. Trek up Old Rag and come back and soak your feet in the Hughes River while quaffing Jimm's excellent Cab-based Virginia Rose; perfect for a summer day! Grill on the deck of the cottage, watching the sun sink over the mountains. Hike the Shenandoah NP trails. Catch up on your reading, and enjoy the wine dogs and wine cats...you'll be glad you did...
