MountainRose Vineyards 

Vineyard strolls and picnics welcomed, BYO-Blanket or reserve a table and relax! Please call ahead for Flight Tastings & Table Reservations. 276.328.2013 Walk-ins are welcomed daily.

MountainRose Vineyards is a family owned award-winning winery and vineyard nestled in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of Southwest Virginia.

The family estate vineyard is the first to be planted on land once mined for coal, an agricultural wonder! Abundant in minerals, the soil gives the wine beautiful rich colors and intense fruity flavors and aromas not found in other wines!

All the grapes are hand pruned and grown in the cool mountain air with plenty of sunshine, then harvested and sorted by hand so only the best grapes go into the wine.

Visitors love to tour our vineyards and try our wines, being pleasantly surprised when they taste them. Most can’t believe such great wines are being made in the heart of coal country, more famous for coal mine strikes than award winning wines. What brings visitors back again and again is not only the wonderful wine, but a chance to be part of the dream. The truth is, the wonderful white, blush, and red wines of MountainRose Vineyards, not the black coal, are the true hidden treasures of the Appalachian Mountains in Wise County.  So, it can be said that dreams really do come true.
