Thank you for visiting our site.  We are located in the Shenandoah Valley in Page county, known for its rural character and scenic beauty, between the towns of Luray and Stanley.  Our small farm winery is nestled on the western slope of the Blue Ridge mountains.  This is a working farm and vineyard; we also have a flock of natural-colored Romney sheep as well as free-roaming chickens for your viewing pleasure while picnicking and enjoying your wine!

We invite you to come out and enjoy a day in the country.  Bring a picnic and wander around the farm and vineyard or just sit on our deck, enjoying the wine and the surroundings.  In the colder months, warm yourself by the fireplace in the tasting room or one of our outdoor heaters or fire pits.  We offer free wi-fi for our friends while you are enjoying your wine on the deck or in the tasting room.

We'd love to have you join our extended family, either as a Wine Club Member or a "Friend of the Winery"!  See this link on our Facebook page for more details.  If you are interested in joining us, just shoot us an email or let us know the next time you come by!


Our farm dates from the 1890s, although we are the first to grow grapes here. Our tasting room is an addition to the original house, a lovely Victorian.  Our vineyard is located on a very old creek bed and is extremely porous and rocky, which helps the grapevines thrive. 

We follow sustainable agriculture practices, and strive to be good stewards of the land.  All of our trellising is made from cedars grown on our property which we had to clear to make way for the vineyard - no treated posts and recycling at its best!

We believe a great wine comes from great grapes.  To that end, we spend most of our time in the vineyard, tending the grapes.  We pick them at the optimal time to allow the wine to achieve it's highest potential on it's own with minimal interference from the winemaker. 

All of our wine is crafted from 100% Virginia-grown grapes.  Our goal is that they will eventually all be from estate-grown grapes.  Our offerings include Pinot Gris (estate), Chardonnay, Viognier, Traminette, Seyval (estate), Merlot, Carmine (estate), and Norton (estate).  We also offer three semi-sweet blends (Velvet, Ashtaroot, and Adonis) and a dessert wine (Sweet Daisy).  The regular tasting fee is $5 and includes a souvenir glass.

We can also ship within the state of Virginia and other selected states; if you would like to order our wine, just send an email to info@wisteriavineyard.com!

June 7 - Music Under the Arbor, 3 - 5 p.m. with Kipyn.  - Kipyn Martin is another Valley local out of Shepherdstown.  She interweaves familiar blues and folk styles with a freshness of approach and an edge of unpredictability.  Exhaling one phrase with gentle lyricism, and the next growling with guttural honesty, hers is an authentic voice not to be missed.

June 15 (Fathers Day) - Music Under the Arbor, 2 - 4 p.m. with Greg Ward.  Greg travels over the mountain from Charlottesville and his performance consists of an upbeat acoustic set featuring artists such as Smokey Robinson, Johnny Nash, Ben E. King, The Beatles, Van Morrison, The Lumineers, Bob Marley, and more.  Greg's electric set is an explosive blend of classic Reggae hits, Motown, Rock, as well as Originals, all with an Island flavor!

June 21 - Music Under the Arbor, 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. with Acoustic Thunder.  This popular and high-energy local duo plays great classic rock which will have your toes tapping and you singing along!

Their music is based on the sounds of classic bluegrass with a newer country twist that is sure to have your foot tapping as their original songs radiate through the crowd. Chris (lead vocalist) and Rod (lead guitar) have worked together for over 7 years and put their heart and soul into their music as they sing and pick for you.

September 21 - Music Under the Arbor, 2 - 4 p.m. with Pops Walker.  Pops is another local who gives a mesmerizing performance of original songs with an old chestnut or two included and plays with a penchant for “acoustic blues”. And while up-tempo blues is his favorite style, it’s only part of his repertoire - one can hear dashes of folk, jazz, country, and a tidy little genre called Southern Fried Zen Mojo, a phrase coined just for him.
