Just an hour drive outside of Washington DC, Capitol Vineyards sits on over 30 acres of prime terroir in Delaplane, VA. Owned and operated by young professionals of the Capitol region, Capitol Vineyards offers accessible wines for affordable prices. Our wines are made from 100% Virginia Grapes. Our 2009 vintage features Traminette, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Meritage.
Nestled in the steep slopes of Red Oak Mountain, Capitol Vineyards has 16 cleared acres of available grape gr...owing land. The temperate to hot, humid climate has an almost unlimited growing season where many grape varietals can do well. Varietals with loose clusters and grapes with thicker rot-resistant skins are ideal for the climate.
The Tasting Room:
Built in the 1800’s the tasting room was once home to the first African American owned Postmaster General in Virginia. Converted into a General Store in the early 1900’s the store has stood vacant since 1950. Newly renovated, the store has been converted into Capitol Vineyard’s tasting room. The building maintains its historic frame and style and the tasting room incorporates the original wooden bar. Join us Saturday and Sunday 0900-1700 to enjoy our wines in this antique and charming setting.
