Were quite familiar with the Delaplane area and VERY familiar with VA vineyards, as we've visited nearly half in VA (there are over 250!). We decided to finally go look for this winery and found it right away... Appeared to be an old, ancient vineyard...More

Your first impression will be to drive on by, and you won't regret it if you do. But if you're on that country road anyway, ignore the appearance of the "tasting room" (which is a run down old house right by the road) and stop...More

Stopped here on the way from one winery to another. No one else was there which is unusual for wineries in the area. One of the owners was doing the tasting but seemed bored with the whole session. The wines were okay but did not...More

We live near Leesburg and have visited nearly every winery in NoVA. Capitol is one of the few to which we've made a return visit. They are a bit further afield than most, and have worked the coupon sites to generate more traffic. But there...More

We invited our best friends for an afternoon out and boy were we embarrassed. I can not believe they are trying to sell themselves as a winery. We were worried that the floor of the shack was going to collapse. The staff was not friendly...More
