Winery Testimonials!53rd Winery Testimonials

I just visited! I am a manager of another vineyard and I must say I wish I had an employee like Marie at the 53rd. My fiance and I have visited 50+ vineyards and it was the best experience just because of her!

First place that I have liked so many wines, so joined the wine club well worth it. The grounds are beautiful! Staff is amazing!!

What a great place to sample wine and then relax on the patio with a bottle and friends.

Amazing place and people. This has always been a great place to go and enjoy some great wine, people, and entertainment.

Love this winery! My fiancé and I have been coming here for over a year and have nothing negative to say about the Fifty Third!! The staff along with the generous number of wines they offer as part of their tasting experience is why we keep coming back(each month…sometimes twice..shhh). I’ve visited dozens of wineries throughout VA and have never tasted so many(15-18) and wonderful, wines for only $10. They have a nice patio and often have live music and sometimes food trucks, too! All-in-all, it’s the staff that has made this particular winery feel like home-greeted by a warm smile and friendly conversation, we always leave feeling relaxed and happy..and with delicious wine! After all, isn’t that what you go to a winery for?

Visited on NYE and had a great time. Wines were excellent, building was beautiful and just a cool overall scene. Staff treated us so well. Would definitely recommend to any in the area.
