Stinson Vineyards

4744 Sugar Hollow Road, Crozet  | |  434-823-7300

iStinson Vineyards is a family and winemaker-owned estate winery in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains specializing in small lot wines with a distinct French influence. The father/daughter team of Scott Stinson and Rachel Stinson Vrooman was joined by Rachel’s husband Nathan Vrooman in 2015. They take inspiration from “garagiste” wineries of France, in both their winemaking techniques and the winery itself, which is built into an old three car garage.

The wines of Stinson Vineyards are enjoying growing critical acclaim, and the winery near Charlottesville has become a visitor destination for its fine wines, stunning views, and excellent hospitality.

Wines are made on premises in Virginia by husband/wife winemaking team of Nathan Vrooman and Rachel Stinson Vrooman. The Stinsons are devotees of French wines, especially those from the Bordeaux and Loire Valley regions. Traditional French winemaking methods are employed, including whole berry fermentation for reds and sur lie aging for whites.

Focus is placed on European-style wines that emphasize subtlety and complexity rather than the power and super-ripeness of West Coast wines.
