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.
Closed for Labor Day on September 5
Our tasting room and restaurant will be closed on Monday, September 5 to observe the Labor Day holiday. We hope you'll stop by earlier that weekend to celebrate with us!

The 2014 Sparkling Rosé is here!
If you loved our 2014 still Rosé (who didn't?), you'll love its sparkling sibling. Crisp, dry, with notes of fresh strawberry.
2013 Tannat by the glass
Our signature Tannat is now available by the glass. While not included in our tasting line up, ask your pourer if there is a bottle open and we'll hook you up!
New Patio Umbrellas
Summer is upon us and we have added half a dozen large market umbrellas to cool things down.
Our 2015 Rosé has been released just in time to take the edge off the Virginia summer. Tart with notes of red cherry, this wine will hold up and pair well with even the heaviest of summer dishes.
