Enjoy the beautiful Virginia countryside as you drive from winery to winery and Taste handcrafted, award winning Virginia wines of exceptional quality and character.

Fifty-Third Winery & Vineyard, Grayhaven Winery, James River Cellars Winery, Lake Anna Winery, and Mattaponi Winery have joined to form the Heart of Virginia Wine Trail. These 5 Virginia Wineries work together to create some of the best Virginia wines. 

anytime passport tickets

The Passport Ticket provides a tasting at all five wineries with a souvenir wineglass. The Passport NEVER expires, so you can go at your own pace. Visit one winery a month, or knock it out in one weekend... it's up to you! Once you complete the Passport, you can turn in your ticket to be entered into a drawing. Each quarter, we draw from the completed tickets that year and choose a winner!

Passport Weekends occur throughout the year. The HOVA wineries all have a little something extra for Passport Ticket holders that attend their winery on these weekends. Visit the Passport Weekend page for more information and dates.

HOVA Passport Tickets can be purchased online or at any of the Heart of Virginia Wineries. After your purchase, keep your confirmation email and present it at the first winery you visit to claim your Passport and wineglass. Complete the trail anytime the wineries are open. Please, visit the participating wineries page for maps, hours, and information for the Heart of Virginia Wine Trail. 

annual festival tickets

There are several festivals that HOVA wineries host and the other HOVA wineries attend. This is a great time to visit a winery while the others also participate... FIVE all in one location! Listen to live music, shop local vendors, and grab a bite from gourmet food trucks while you sip your favorite Heart of Virginia wine!

These festivals require specific tickets. These tickets can be purchased in advance - online - or at the gate, the day of the event. If you purchase your tickets online, keep your confirmation email and present it at the event gate. Advance ticket sales end at noon the Friday before the event.
