How will you experience
Pearmund Cellars?
Pearmund Cellars now offers five wine tasting experiences. Choices, choices, choices...

1. Classic

Taste our current release wines at our tasting bar. No reservation required for parties of less than 6 people. From $10.

2. It's A Party

Enjoy a private wine class with your own designated staff person in one of our beautiful remote spots at the winery. For groups of 6 or more. $15 pp, by appointment only.

3. Progressive Wine Tour

Sipping a cool glass of Chardonnay, your tour begins in Virginia's oldest vineyard. Strolling through the vines and ending in the barrel room, we walk and talk you through the process that takes the grapes from "berry to bottle." It takes one to three years to create a great bottle of wine. Here you'll learn why! $20 pp, by appointment only. Allow 1/2 hour. Tours are given Saturday and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

4. The Full Monty

Settle in and join us for a private wine and food pairing class. Held in the barrel room or tank room, and surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of wine production, you'll enjoy our best wines paired with various meats, cheeses and more. Reserve The Fully Monty, and get ready to master the art of food and wine pairing. $50 pp, by appointment. Allow at least 1 hour. Available January - August.
