Breweries

“Your Guide to Drink In the Shenandoah Valley”

Pick up your Shenandoah Beerwerks Trail Passport at any participating brewery. Get your passport stamped at 8 of our breweries to receive a Shenandoah Beerwerks t-shirt. Go to beerwerkstrail.com for more info.

If you just want to go to a local brewery, we recommend Elkton Brewing Company. They have a great backstory! 

Our building was built in 1890 originally to host Elkton Milling Company. In the 1980’s, our family used the building as a warehouse to store supplies for another business. The space has gone through multiple renovations bringing it to its current setup. We intentionally preserved and exposed many of the original architectural features, including brick walls, the second floor beams, and the rare, beautiful, and impressive American Chestnut columns. The massive interior chestnut pillars. This amazing space is the perfect home for Elkton Brewing Company. We have comfortable lounge spaces, two bars, high and low tables, and outside seating. All of these spaces work together to make our guests feel right at home wherever they choose to settle in.

Wineries

Numbering just a few shy of 200, Virginia’s wineries pour their best blends at numerous wineries – many within an hour’s drive of Massanutten. Far too numerous for this to ever be a comprehensive post, here are a few of our guests’ favorites. 

Please contact these establishments before heading out to confirm info.

Cross Keys Winery

6011 E. Timber Ridge Road, Mt. Crawford, VA  22841

www.crosskeysvineyards.com

The closest vineyard to the house. Cross Keys Vineyards is a family owned and operated winery located in the heart of beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Our 125 acre estate currently houses 30 acres of vines with plans on addition in 2018. We currently grow 12 varietals of grapes all used to produce our one of a kind award winning wines.

Barboursville Vineyards 

17655 Winery Road, Barboursville, VA 22923

www.bbvwine.com

Great tasting room with Italian wines.  Tastings are $7 but a great selection of whites/reds and dessert wines.  You are free to walk the ruins of a home Thomas Jefferson designed and built for Governor James Barbour.  There is a restaurant on site with limited hours.  The wines are some of the best in Virginia.

Kings Family Vineyards

6550 Roseland Farm, Crozet, VA 22932

www.kingfamilyvineyards.com

Very nice tasting room and beautiful patio to sit and enjoy wine.  Limited things available to purchase but they allow you to bring a picnic.  On Sunday, they have a polo match at about 1:00 (seasonal).  Enjoy tasting, selecting a bottle, and then enjoying the polo match.  Very nice variety of wines.  Stables and horses are on site and a beautiful setting. 

Grace Vineyards

5273 Mt. Juliet Farm, Crozet, VA  22932

www.graceestatewinery.com

This is a new winery – their wines are still pretty young, but the view from the top of the mountain spans several counties.  It is worth going up there for the view.

Jefferson Vineyards

1353 Thomas Jefferson Pkwy, Charlottesville, VA  22902

www.jeffersonvineyards.com

Lovely winery, one of the oldest in VA.  If has outside patio that is quiet and relaxing.  

Horton Vineyards

6399 Spotswood Trail, Gordonsville, VA 22942

www.hortonwine.com

They have a large tasting room and a large selection.  Their tasting is $5 and worth it as they let you taste about anything.  They have a couple of fortified wines (port style) that we typically bring home.

Wine trails accessible to the house:

The Appalachian Trail (Grace is a part of it as well as others) and the Monticello Trail (Jefferson and Trump participate).

Copper Fox Distillery

9 River Lane, Sperryville, VA  22740

www.copperfox.biz

There is a single malt distillery north of us. They have a web site and we like visiting there and taking a tour.  A beautiful drive thru the Shenandoah mountains, it is out in the middle of nowhere, but if you enjoy scotch it would be a fun trip.  Sperryville is a very cute town with several shops and eateries.
