At Belle Mount Vineyards you can enjoy wine tasting and tours of the vineyard and winery.  We offer fine Virginia wines made from our vineyards planted on the rolling hills of our recreation facility Heritage Park Resort. In addition to winemaking at Belle Mount you can enjoy cottage rentals, camping, fishing and hiking.

We grow many European grape varieties, a few hybrids and of course the historic American grape Norton, originally discovered in Richmond.  As a Virginia Farm Winery we are permitted to sell directly to our customers - a little like buying from the farmer's market.  Sample our unique offerings in our gift shop and tasting room. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy a bottle of our wine on the patio. Look for our wine in select Virginia wine shops and here online.  Chardonnay, Merlot and Cab Franc are our most popular fine wines.

Our banquet facility provides a great place to host weddings, receptions, reunions and meetings. The vineyard is a romantic site for wedding ceremonies.  See inside photos of our Great Hall and plan your next special event in our Banquet Hall or Picnic Grounds.

Plan a private wine tasting event at Belle Mount Vineyards. Your group will enjoy learning about our wines and experience a first rate presentation on wine appreciation. Tastings include a signature Belle Mount glass and a fruit/cheese platter. Topics include wine and food pairing, tasting techniques and the origins of winemaking. Seating for 10 to 150 people. 


We are located near Warsaw in Richmond County on Virginia's Northern Neck.  From our vineyards you can see the Rappahannock River and you can launch a canoe into Cat Point Creek.  If you enjoy Bald Eagle watching and leisurely trips to pristine freshwater wetlands then you will love it here. Only one hour's drive from Richmond or Fredericksburg.

Plan a retreat or romantic getaway to our cabins - see Virginia Wine Country.  Visit us as you tour the scenic and historic region and don't forget to visit our neighboring wineries on the Chesapeake Bay Wine Trail.

Current Offerings

Wine is food


Our Chardonnay is the classic white to serve with light flavored meals such as fish, chicken or crab. The pear, citrus and tropical fruit flavors mingle in an intricate balance.

Vidal Blanc

Vidal or Vidal Blanc, it's formal name, is a French-American hybrid with a multitude of luscious fruit flavors.  Our Vidal is a dry wine with refreshing acidity and the characteristic zing of Vidal.  The finish is long and pleasant to complement many light seafood or pasta dishes.

Cabernet Franc

A Bordeaux style red wine with unique varietal characteristics.  Soft and supple with chocolate and leather notes and fruity with blackberry and currant flavors. The complexity and structure is bound to intrigue.  It is medium-bodied and provides a great accompaniment for stronger flavored foods like pasta with red sauces, lamb, grilled meats and beef.


The Native Virginia Grape with a smoky earthy taste and hints of black cherry. Rich deep and mysterious. How did an American grape get nicknamed the Cabernet of the Ozarks? Taste it and you'll know.  It is medium to full-bodied and provides a great accompaniment for stronger flavored foods like steak or meats with rich sauces.  Delectable with strong flavored cheeses.


A medium-bodied red wine with a wonderfully complex structure.  Fruit flavors of blackberry, cherry and hints of blueberry are sure to satisfy the most discriminating palate. Smooth and pleasing our Merlot is great to savor with strong flavored food or may be enjoyed by itself.

Lighthouse Rouge

It's a sweet blush blend of two red wines and a white. Just enough red wine for character plus the refreshing acidity that makes it perfect as a warm weather treat.  Best served chilled or even in the company of an ice cube.

A picnic tag-a-long to enjoy with friends

Workboat Red

A sweet Chambourcin - fruity, refreshing and perfect for casual occasions. Complements any creamy cheeses and light sauces or pour some on vanilla ice cream and create a new sensation. Great for Sangria. Serve chilled.

Sweet Breeze

A sweet white wine with honey and tropical fruit flavors.  Not quite a dessert wine, but it is knocking at the door.  Have on hand as an after dinner drink or to enjoy picnic style.  Serve Chilled - goes well with fruit and nuts.

Enjoy a visit to our multi-dimensional winery on Virginia's Northern Neck. Our goal is to help you learn about our wines and the winemaking process.  The rhythm of a winery is shaped by the seasons.  Each year we nurture the vines and walk the grapes through the winemaking process after harvest.

The hand-crafted nature of our business
allows us to create high quality premium wines.

We hope you will enjoy the results of our efforts.


Vineyard Cycle
Merlot kissed by the sun


The vines are pruned in late winter just before the new buds start to push out. In March the vines awake from dormancy and begin to grow quickly as the temperatures rise.  By the middle of April the shoots are pushing out and a new vintage is taking shape.

Luscious berries rich with flavor

The moderate climate in the Northern Neck usually protects us from late spring frosts.
