Mountain Run Winery Profile
Written by Brian—Jul 28, 2018
Located just down the road from Lake Pelham, near Culpepper, Mountain Run Winery is a recent addition to the Northern Virginia Region. Owner/winemaker David Foster started planting grapes in 2015 and intends to continue planting incrementally for the foreseeable future.
When I visited, Foster was not available, but I was able to taste several of the Mountain Run offerings. The wines show promise and I have every reason to believe that they will improve with the introduction of additional estate fruit and as the vines mature.
Mountain Run Winery was established on the site of a historic 19th-century farm. The tasting room is in a converted hay loft and additional space has been set up on the ground level. The property offers space to explore. If you stop in, please let me know what you think.
