Top Of The Mountain To You
Enjoying a glass of wine at Twin Oaks Tavern Winery is a peak experience. Located on top of Blue Ridge Mountain, our hillside vineyard overlooking the Shenandoah Valley has the ideal altitude and mineral-rich soil to cultivate grapes that produce distinctive wines.
Winter, spring, summer, fall – our tasting room and wine decks are just an hour’s drive from the city and a world away for the day! In cool weather you can enjoy the stone fireplace in our tasting room, and in warm weather, the wine decks are shady and breezy.
Bring your friends, kids, dogs and picnic… and discover the beauty of our top of the world setting.
Twin Oaks Tavern Award Winning Wines!
Winemaker Donna Evers is happy to announce that two of her small-batch artisan wines have won big at The Beverage Tasting Institute in Chicago. They gave TOTW Chardonnay and Raven Rocks Red the following awards:
Chardonnay 2013 received a Gold Medal and “92/Exceptional” rating. Here is what the judges said about our wine:
Golden color. Rich aromas of buttery cashew brittle, pickling spices, and apple tart with a silky, fruity-yet-dry medium body and a tangy Meyer lemon, green apple, relish and vanilla cream accented finish. A delicious, zesty chardonnay for all occasions.
Raven Rocks Red 2013 received a Silver Medal and “88/Excellent” rating. Here is their description of our wine:
Garnet purple color. Complex aromas of cassis, mulberries and Mexican chocolate with a rangy, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a spiced cherry, pickled beet and cranberry finish with powdery tannins. A vibrant and lively red blend that will excel at the table.
What People Are Saying
“I have been to your establishment twice and I had the best time with family and friends in the past 12 months. I have been to 65 wineries in the area and I will say that in my opinion, you have one of the Best boutique wineries that I have been to.”
“Just wanted to send you a quick note of appreciation. My girlfriend and I visited Twin Oaks Tavern Winery last week and truly enjoyed our time. Fred is very personable and provided answers to all our “historical” questions. I grew up in California and have had the pleasure of going to Napa Valley. I can honestly say that the view from your deck is simply amazing and while I guess your intent was not to compete with west coast vineyards, yours is doing just that!”

“Good evening Donna, my name is David Johnson. I had the fortunate experience of finding your winery about a month ago on my way home to Winchester after a long and rather trying day. I’m sure you receive many emails from people just like me who have enjoyed their time and want to let you know about it…..OK, I’m no different.
I was met by a wonderful lady who, even though it was almost closing time, treated me with the utmost respect and open arms. She was knowledgeable about the wines and the interesting history of your property. Her eyes showed the pride she felt in what she had to offer.
I really want to thank you and your staff for what was truly one of the most memorable fall afternoons I’ve ever had. Your staff are the true gems, the wines are a bonus.
I was once told by a rather famous chef, ‘David, they will come for the food, but return for the service.’ You have both Donna, wonderful wines, and the staff to keep us coming back. Thank you again.”
David Johnson, Virginia
