A Dazzling Riverside Estate
Twenty minutes from Richmond
Come experience the magic of Upper Shirley Vineyards, a one-of-a-kind estate, winery, restaurant and wedding venue perched above the James River. Here in Tidewater Virginia the hours unspool at a more gracious pace. Senses awaken, and stress melts away, leaving you space for more meaningful connections with friends and family.
Though only 20 minutes from downtown Richmond, Upper Shirley Vineyards is ensconced in a rural wonderland. The estate boasts history and scenic beauty on an epic scale and an embarrassment of culinary riches—bottomland produce, fresh-caught seafood—and world-class wines made from our own estate-grown grapes.

Flippin' good grilling under the tent (traditional menu still available inside), live tunes on the terrace, outdoor bar on the patio, gorgeous springtime weather, and views for days. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs and let's enjoy the great outdoors!
