Barren Ridge Vineyards

Distance from The Blackburn: 15-minute drive

Barren Ridge is another great pick for wineries near Staunton. It provides a classic vineyard feel with open spaces and mountain views. They take advantage of the earth the vineyard sits on and cultivate the soil’s flavor for a more crisp and austere wine.

Tasting is performed in a converted rustic and cozy apple-packing barn. You can’t help but feel calm and relaxed as you enter the property. Both the tasting list and flights rotate based on weekly availability. However, the staff prioritizes diversity (white, red, dry sweet, etc.), so you can always find something to your liking at this Staunton winery.

You can also pair your selections with artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, and fresh baguettes. This will allow you to enhance the flavor of both the food and beverage. Visit here to learn more.

Veritas Vineyards and Winery

Distance from The Blackburn: 27-minute drive

The best words to describe Veritas Vineyards and Winery are “classic” and “refined.” Dive into the world of wine with Veritas where they use old-world principles of viticulture and vinification — along with state-of-the-art technology — to make delicious wine.

The name “Veritas” is derived from Roman historian Pliny the Elder’s observation, “In vino veritas.” This means “In wine there is truth.”

Veritas offers three different tasting options to choose from – each with their own unique experience. The tasting room kitchen provides a variety of appetizing bites such as sandwiches, salads, and charcuterie and cheese plates. You can also bring a picnic to enjoy on the lawn.
