We will re-open March 22, 2024! The tasting outpost has moved to a space adjacent to the winery building. We look forward to welcoming you in this temporary location while we build our new tasting room. See you soon!

We offer limited indoor seating in our tasting “outpost” building, and outdoor seating at our picnic tables, Adirondack chairs, and around our fire pits!

Please check Google Maps for our most accurate hours, and social media for any schedule changes due to weather or special events.

Hark offers a tasting menu that changes monthly, featuring approximately eight 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. Our house tasting is $15 and features 2oz pours of four wines. The reserve tasting is $20 and features 2oz pours of four different wines. All tastings are served in carafes 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 a family-friendly property. Children are welcome, but please help us protect the grapes. Ask a tasting associate for kid-friendly drinks and snacks as well!
  • 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.
