Located midway between Richmond and Charlottesville in Louisa County, Fifty-third Winery and Vineyard of Virginia was licensed as the 53rd Virginia Farm Winery in July of 1999. The Winery now consists of 103 acres with 22 acres planted to different varietals. Nestled among rolling hills in a traditional farming community, the goal of owners David and Susan Drillock is to create quality wines that express their varietal character. The varietals include Albariño, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, Chardonel, Chardonnay, Merlot, Norton, Petit Verdot, Vidal Blanc and Viognier.

53rd Winery and Vineyard does not sell, lease, rent or offer any contact information to 3rd party providers. We appreciate your visit!
