About The Wineries
The SoVA Wine Trail, which those “in the know” refer to as “SoVA” was established in Spring 2009 by an enthusiastic group of grape grower/wine makers with 9 wineries located in Southern Virginia. Southern Virginia is an up-and-coming grape-growing region that hosts a unique and ideal terroir for growing a vast variety of grapes for fine wine making.
SoVA has made a name for itself bringing wine enthusiasts to Southern Virginia for a more “organic” and personal experience where guests often have the opportunity to sample and learn about award-winning wines along side SoVA’s wine makers and vineyard owners.
In addition to our now 12 wineries, SoVA has a great group of inns, bed & breakfasts, restaurants, and exciting points of interest to keep visitors busy! SoVA is perfect for a romantic Virginia weekend getaway, a Girls Trip or a day trip being less than four hours from Washington D.C. and Northern Virgina, two hours from Richmond, Virginia, 1 hour from Raleigh, and less than an hour from Greensboro, North Carolina.
Live Passionately…Wine Your Way Through Southern Virginia! We look forward to seeing y’all soon!

They were among the first wineries in the state, and the first to bottle a wine in a soda-style bottle for a fun and easy alternative to the glass on hot summer days!
