Afton Mountain Vineyards

234 Vineyard Lane
Afton, VA 22920


Our Story:

Elizabeth and Tony Smith both grew up in nearby Albemarle County, went to Albemarle High School, were married at the UVa Chapel, and had both of their children at the original Martha Jefferson Hospital.

After spending twenty years in the Tidewater, VA region, their love of Virginia and wine lead to their discovery and acquisition of the best local vineyard site in 2009. There they enjoy the grapes and wines they make today.

About Us:

Our beautiful vineyard site is located on the sunrise side of Afton Mountain.  Here the vines are protected from frost by our elevation of nearly 1000 feet, shielded from excessive rain by the mountain’s rain shadow, and dried by the prevailing breezes flowing through the nearby Rockfish and Humpback gaps.

Afton Mountain Vineyards is one of Virginia’s first farm wineries; our original vines were planted in 1978.  Those blocks are still in production today. Since our acquisition in 2009 we have doubled the acres under vine; we now grow a total of 11 varieties on 26 acres.
