Our beautiful vineyard site is located on the sunrise side of Afton Mountain. Here the vines are protected from frost by our elevation of nearly 1000 feet, shielded from excessive rain by the mountains rain shadow, and dried by the prevailing breezes flowing through the nearby Rockfish and Humpback gaps. Afton Mountain Vineyards is one of Virginias first farm wineries; our original vines were planted in 1978. Those blocks are still in production today. Since our acquisition in 2009 we have doubled the acres under vine; we now grow a total of 11 varieties on 26 acres.
