2017 White Wine Pre-Orders Available Online Now!

We realize it’s been a loooong time, thanks to our late freezes of 2016, that we’ve been able to offer white wines other than Traminette here in the Tasting Room.  We’re putting the finishing touches on our 2017 Pinot Grigio, Virginia White, Traminette and Rosé to be bottled later this week and we couldn’t be more excited!

Many people have asked for the ability to pre-order bottles, and so we’d like to give you that chance!  You may pre-order via our website and then pick your bottles up starting Saturday, January 27th, when we will be releasing them to the general public during our Winter Whites Celebration!

To place your orders, please CLICK HERE!  If you elect to have your bottles shipped, please note that we will send them starting on Monday, January 29th.

New Virginia State Rules for Dogs in Tasting Rooms

What’s one of the things you remember the most about your visits to Rosemont?  Usually when we ask people, they immediately mention “Madison!”  Madison is Justin & Aubrey’s adorable Chow/German Shepard mix that you can usually find greeting you when you arrive.  We have always opened our doors widely to guests traveling and tasting with their four legged friends, and have always welcomed a friend for Madison.

Unfortunately, this week we received a letter, and were also notified by the Virginia Winery Association, that the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services will no longer allow us to permit dogs in the Tasting Room, leash or not (exception being service animals).

Please believe that this is just as hard for you all as it is for us – the rule also applies to Madison, who has grown up in the Tasting Room.  We love having you bring your dogs to visit us in the Tasting Room, but from this point onward we cannot allow them inside.

You’re still more than welcome to bring your dogs to the vineyard and enjoy our outdoor seating areas, including the side porches and lawn. We do have outside stairs that will allow you access to the porches with your dogs.  We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause for your future visits, but we hope you continue to enjoy your visits to Rosemont with your furry friends tagging along outside.
