Best of Virginia: Barboursville Vineyards

Our favorite vineyard welcomes you to their online presence with this introduction:

“Welcome to the home of Octagon, the wine that has come to define the viticultural region envisioned by Thomas Jefferson, and established here in 1976 by Gianni and Silvana Zonin.” __Barboursville Vineyards

As a Virginia family since our first ancestors arrived in 1602, this vineyard has a special place in our hearts, wine experience and for our love of wine, vineyard and viticulture photography.  From their award-winning wines, special events, the Palladio Restaurant, 1804 Inn & Cottages to their wine tastings by a knowledgable and enjoyable staff earns this vineyard top honors as “best in Virginia Wine Country.”  The architecture, Barboursville Ruins, to the breathtaking views of mountains, grazing horses and plentiful picnic areas offer something for everyone to enjoy.  Visit Barboursville in person for a truly wonderful Virginia wine country experience.
