We enjoy having groups visit us at the winery and have a special area for group tastings to make sure that your group is given the personalized attention you want!   Groups receive a special souvenir glass to take home as a memento of their time together!  We have tasting packages that include lunch, gourmet platters and other food options.  

In all cases, reservations are required for groups larger than 7.  Our group tasting fees reflect the exclusive experience you will have and include a souvenir wine glass in addition to dedicated space for your group and a dedicated tasting associate to guide you through the tasting.   

Please fill out our form below and our group manager will contact you as quickly as possible.  In the event you need immediate assistance, you may call 304-261-8156.

group reservation inquiry form

  • group tasting reservations require a 50% non-refundable deposit upon confirmation of the reservation
  • the balance of the amount will be charged to a single credit card on the date of your visit
  • please note that we book groups months in advance and may be unable to accommodate your large group on short notice
  • in all cases, groups of 12 or more must reserve at least 72 hours in advance

Large Groups

In conjunction with Grandale Catering, our pavilion and party tent are available for rent on an hourly basis for larger groups and parties.  Ask us about our designer food packages available to make these events truly special!  These reservations are typically made three to four months in advance of your event and require prepayment in full upon confirmation of the reservation.

All groups larger than seven people must confirm availability of space with our Group Manager (304-261-8156)  prior to arriving, regardless of whether everyone in the group will be participating in a wine tasting.  This is to ensure all of our customers have a beautiful experience while at 868. 

Large parties who arrive without prior approval may be asked to relocate. 

According to Virginia ABC regulations, no outside alcohol may be brought on site.  Outside food is not allowed in our tasting room, patio area or pavilion, but is allowed in our shaded picnic area nearby.  Picnic table reservations are available and are prepaid.
