1. Award Winning Wines
The Winery at Bull Run Vineyard has two vineyards on site, totaling over 8 acres of vines; mostly Norton with a little Traminette on the western plot. The Norton grape is the true American grape-born in Virginia-which is why we selected it! Traminette is one of the secret ingredients in our crowd favorite-Delaney. These grapes become the wines from The Winery at Bull Run that have been awarded numerous medals since they opened their doors. For a complete list of awards go here.
2. A History Lesson

Showcasing wine-making techniques from the Civil War era as well as historical buildings, historical markers, and a mini-museum filled with Civil War artifacts and relics, you are transported back in time everywhere you look. And since The Winery at Bull Run is adjacent to the Manassas Civil War Battlefield Park and the picturesque Stone Bridge.
