**Updated November 2017 – Unfortunately we have received notice from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services that dogs will no longer be allowed inside Winery Tasting Rooms, leash or not (exception being service animals) across the State. 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 are truly sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but we hope you continue to enjoy your visits to Rosemont with your furry friends tagging along outside.
Tasting Fees $10.00 per person
Wine Tastings include a sample of all of our current vintages being offered in the Tasting Room, all of which are 100% estate grown, produced and bottled! You’ll also receive one of our Rosemont souvenir glasses to commemorate your visit.
