Hartwood Winery

345 Hartwood Road
Fredericksburg, VA 22406


Open: Year Round


Hartwood Winery opened in the spring of 1989 in the rural community of Hartwood, Virginia. Hartwood is an area long known for its heavy deer population. Hart is the old English word for deer, and according to local legend is the basis of the area's name; and in turn the winery's logo.

Owner Jim Livingston started building Hartwood Winery while still an educator with Prince William County, Virginia.  Jim has been involved with Virginia wine since 1975.  He established, with the help of family and friends, the first Stafford County commercial vineyard in 1981 and farm winery in 1989. Jim's wife Beverly joins him in making the winery what is today.

Daniel Powell began working in the vineyard as a teen, after riding his bike to the winery in asking Jim if he could mow the grass.  Daniel worked his way up to become the Vineyard Manager, and after turning 21 became Hartwood's Cellar Master. 

Hartwood Winery's award-winning wines are clear evidence of potential embodied in Virginia wines in our rapidly maturing wine industry.  Hartwood Winery continues to build on its solid foundation by providing excellent wines in a warm, friendly atmosphere for all to enjoy.
