Open: Year Round

Rebec Vineyards is a 70 acre estate in Amherst County offering beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The family home, Mountainview, is listed both on the National Register of Historic Places and as a Virginia Landmark.

In 1980, founder Richard Hanson planted the eight acres of noble vitis vinifera grapes. By 1987, the wine produced began selling under the Rebec label. Now, a quarter of a century later, fifteen wines are marketed via winery visits, festivals and local restaurant and retail establishments.

The winery was designed and built by owner Richard Hanson and his son-in-law Mark Magruder. The building features rich weathered chestnut siding and exposed beams from a 200 year old tobacco barn, which was once on this historic farm.

Visitors are encouraged to learn more about the art of winemaking through our tours and wine tastings which are available for a modest fee. Enjoy the new deck overlooking our vineyards or bring a blanket and picnic under trees in the vineyards except on the second full weekend in October, when we host the Virginia Wine & Garlic Festival.
