Just an hour drive outside of Washington DC, Capitol Vineyards sits on over 30 acres of prime terroir in Delaplane, VA. Owned and operated by young professionals of the Capitol region, Capitol Vineyards offers accessible wines for affordable prices. Our wines are made from 100% Virginia Grapes. Our 2009 vintage features Traminette, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Meritage. Built in the 1800’s the tasting room was once home to the first African American owned Postmaster General in Virginia. Converted into a General Store in the early 1900’s the store has stood vacant since 1950. Newly renovated, the store has been converted into Capitol Vineyard’s tasting room. The building maintains its historic frame and style and the tasting room incorporates the original wooden bar.
