Veritas Vineyard and Winery

Reservations for tastings are encouraged but walk-ins are welcome


Watching this beautiful winery grow and evolve over the years has been nothing short of inspiring. Their auspicious beginning started with founders Andrew and Patricia Hodson offering tastings in a small outbuilding which has now evolved into a stunning property boasting a palatial tasting/event space, two kitchens, a deck, porch, and lawn. 

It was not long after Andrew and Patricia began that their three adult children joined them in helping sustain this fast-growing winery. Emily Hodson worked alongside her father making wine while obtaining her masters in Oenology (study of fermentation science) becoming part an elite list of woman winemakers.  

Here you can taste a variety of wines ranging from dry or fruity to sparkling. Try the Viognier, one of most popular single varietal white wines in central Virginia, and savor the moment as peach, apricot, and orange blossom explode on your pallet. 

Celebrating something special? Even if you are not, celebrate the moment and share a bottle of luscious sparkling wine, made in the traditional Champagne Method. Craving something a little bolder? Try Petit Verdot, a past Governers Cup winner, which boasts complex flavors of Blackberry, current and plum.  


The Veritas Food and Wine Experience

It is sublime when food is paired with the perfect wine, each working to enhance the flavor of the other. Make reservations for the ultimate food and wine experience where five wines are paired with five unique dishes.

Virtual tasting with Wine Maker

A one-of-a-kind virtual self-guided classic or reserve tasting with the winemaker, Emily Hodson is available through a QR code. Each tasting consists of four wines and an information card. No reservation is needed.
