Hark Vineyards is open! All operations are outdoors.

We are open 12pm-6pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday through the winter months.
Please check Google and/or social media for any schedule changes due to weather or special events.

Hark offers a tasting menu that changes monthly, featuring approximately seven wines. The tasting strives to provide experience with both the Hark and Jake Busching Wines brands, and across the spectrum from light whites to full-bodied reds. Opt for a $15 “splash” (traditional 1oz tasting) or a $25 flight (2oz carafes suitable for sharing), both of which are served for consumption at your seating area. Our wines are also available by the bottle or glass.

We welcome — and encourage — you to bring a picnic and enjoy the experience our estate offers.  Some picnic foods such as cheese, charcuterie, jams, crackers, and chocolate are available for purchase in our tasting room.

A few important notes:

  • We are cashless. We’re happy to tap, dip, and swipe any major credit card!
  • We are a family-friendly property. Children are welcome, but please help us protect the grapes. Ask a tasting associate for kid-friendly drinks and snacks!
  • Well-behaved dogs on a leash are allowed outside. If nature calls, we kindly ask that you clean it up to avoid an unpleasant experience for our vineyard staff or other guests.
  • Smoking and vaping are not permitted anywhere on the property.  Additionally, Virginia ABC laws prohibit the consumption of any outside alcohol while on our premises.
