Rebec Vineyards: open 11am-4pm weekdays, 10am-5pm weekends.
Rebec Vineyards is a 70 acre estate in Amherst County offering beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The family home, Mountainview, is listed both on the National Register of Historic Places and as a Virginia Landmark.
In 1980, founder Richard Hanson planted the eight acres of noble vitis vinifera grapes. By 1987, the wine produced began selling under the Rebec label. Now, a quarter of a century later, fifteen wines are marketed via winery visits, festivals and local restaurant and retail establishments.
The winery was designed and built by owner Richard Hanson and his son-in-law Mark Magruder. The building features rich weathered chestnut siding and exposed beams from a 200 year old tobacco barn, which was once on this historic farm.
