“[Linden] wines strike a balance between Old World restraint and New World fruit expression. They’ve become the benchmark for what many Virginia winemakers strive to attain—wines that express time and place.”
—Wine Enthusiast

Tasting Room

November 23–25, 2018; resumes on January 5, 2019

Our tasting room is informal and our staff is professional and knowledgeable. We love to share our passion for the wines we create.

  • $10 per person (maximum group size of four people).

  • Linden offers tastings to all visitors (over the age of 21) whenever we are open.

  • No reservations needed.

At our tasting counter we are currently offering tastes of the following wines:

Avenius Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Village Chardonnay 2016

Claret 2015

Petit Verdot 2014

Petit Verdot 2015

Late Harvest Petit Manseng 2013

Free Form December

December 1 & 2, 8 & 9, and 15 & 16

Winter slows the pace at Linden. After an intense and often stressful harvest season, we can now take time to get re-acquainted with our past vintages. For the last several years we have enjoyed sharing this process with all of you.

The tasting room is only open for six days during the entire month of December. And we will make the most of each and every one of them. For the weekends of December 1 & 2, 8 & 9, and 15 & 16 traditional tastings are abandoned in favor of a more whimsical, free flow tasting of past, present, and future bottlings.

Some of the highlights will include special pre-releases of the much anticipated 2017 whites, 2015 single vineyard reds, and lots of random older vintages.

In keeping with the free form theme, there will be no reservations nor will there be cellar tastings. Regular tasting fees ($10.00), hours (11:00 to 5:00), and restrictions (no groups larger than four) apply. Just a note for fellow introverts: Sundays and the last weekend (December 15 & 16) tend to be more laid back!
