Everyone's talking about Little Washington winery Tucked right into the sweet spot of Virginia wine country high on the edge of Shenandoah National Park at little Washington Virginia. It's home of 2 of the top rated wines in Virginia and Dirt Road Wine Tour. Every visit is completely different with the Little Washington Winery portfolio of wines + the most incredible wines you'll never find anywhere, typically sold off right on small farms in Virginia and beyond.

This isn't wine for dummies it's Wine Boot Camp. It's the most interactive, informative, interesting way to learn about wine in under three hours. The owner Carl Heinrickson is a wine connoisseurs encyclopedia of knowledge mixed with an awesome dry sense of humor. No other wineries in the area offer what this one does and it makes drinking grapes from... More

I took a class--"Around the World in 80 Minutes"--fun and informative. I'll definitely take another class here. They strive for excellence in their own wines as well as in those they bring in from other wineries around the world. Only one downside--absolutely NOT handicap friendly.

This is a very basic winery and tasting room, but the owner, Carl, makes the difference. The place was packed when we got there on a Saturday, and we had to wait 10 minutes or so to do a tasting. But the owner came over and did a tasting for just me and my wife, and spent the time explaining... More

We had a groupon for their wine boot camp. Honestly, I would have rather spent my time else where. The boot camp was two and a half hours way too long, they could have condensed everything into one hour. To be honest, my whole experience started off on the wrong foot as one of their staff members spilled RED wine... More

The Little Washington Winery is a bit of an anomaly, in that besides many nice VA wines, they offer some international wine selections, that one will likely not see in any other VA winery tasting room. The winery is not the easiest to find, and when you feel that you are in a school parking lot, you are almost there... More

We visited the winery with 2 friends and took a wine boot camp class. The class was quite enjoyable and educational for all, even the oenophiles in our group. Wines tasted included boutique and unique selections from around the globe and selections from their own winery. There's a very limited selection of food available, so you may wish to bring... More

My wife and I started visiting the many vineyards in Virginia this year. While we've enjoyed each wine tasting experience but really didn't understand much about wine itself so we thought the Little Washington Winery Boot Camp would help bring us up to speed. We were not disappointed. The owners, Carl and Donna, taught the class and made it entertaining... More

Wines were good, as was their selection. Very small amount to taste, needed more for my tastes. Young and knowledgeable staff, quite a bit of outdoor upgrades being done, no picnic tables or areas to enjoy the great view...except the crowded second story porch, and it is an amazing view. Actual winery is off-site, and initial impression suggests you are... More

Beautiful location. You would not know it from the road. This winery is back off a gravel road and has a gorgeous view. The girl that served us for our wine tasting was very knowledgeable about the different wines. She was friendly. And this place lets you bring your dog which is awesome! Nice place to grab a bottle of... More
