Where are you doing your corporate picnic this Summer?

Little Washington Winery is located 60 miles west of Washington DC right at the Thornton Gap entrance to Skyline Drive. We are a small farm winery with 7 gold medal handcrafted wines. Our claim to fame is "George", our Bordeaux style blend that has the pedigree of being named the #1 red wine in Virginia. We can do some fun things for your corporate picnic that nobody else can do:

  • Shade ... we are in the forest so we have lots of shade.
  • Panoramic Mountain Views - Little Washington Winery has been named best view and best place for picnics in Virginia.
  • Giant outdoor meadows - Bring on the baseball & soccer. We have great outdoor space to play for a corporate picnic. We also have a disc golf course if you'd like to try your hand at frisbee golf.
  • Nice place for a hike … we’re directly next to Skyline Drive. Come out early and do Old Rag, one of the top 5 hikes in America or take a shorter hike. We can take you on a guided hike if you'd like or you can do a short 1 hour hike straight from our lawn.
  • Choco-Vino pairings - we own the #1 retail wine & chocolate shop in Virginia and the #1 wine & chocolate bar in Charlottesville. We can bring some chocolate up and do choco-vino challenge sessions.
  • Book a band - we can make some great recommendations for a concert.
  • Our 25x30 shade tent is included free in your package.
  • The Dirt Road Wine Tour - wine tastings for your entire crew - including all of our wines and incredible Dirt Road wines you will never have a chance to taste elsewhere (unless you go to their farms). In addition to our own wines we adopt the most incredible wines you'll never find without us! Our sommelier (named one of the top 40 under 40 in America) is always gone looking for small farms, organically handcrafting incredible wines. They are wineries like us, very small, passionately handcrafting wines in the most organic way possible. We feature a different flight of three Dirt Road Wines every day so that you always get a new experience each time you visit. Many of the wines we adopt you would have to go to their farms to find again. We call it the Dirt Road Wine Tour. We have adopted wines here from places you'd never expect - Hawaii, Idaho, Arizona, Virginia, Maryland, New Mexico, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, Missouri, Long Island, Pennsylvania, Brooklyn, Switzerland, Bulgaria, India, Hungary, Uruguay, oh ... and Italy, France, Spain, and California too.
