About Us

Democracy Vineyards is located in gorgeous Nelson County, Virginia and grows six varieties of wine grapes. The vineyard and winery is a scenic day trip from Charlottesville, Lynchburg, Richmond and the Shenandoah Valley, or perfect for a weekend away from the Washington D.C. area or North Carolina. Sample a diverse range of wines produced on site at the winery and soak up our scenic landscape from our picnic area. Our wines pair well with special occasions, relaxation with friends and home-cooked meals.
