The 1619 Wine Pavilion is a patio and two-level covered deck with plenty of fans and shade for outdoor wine enjoyment. It is located across from the winery and adjacent to the Gabriel Archer Tavern.   Wine flights, glasses of wine, and bottles of wine are available at this location Sunday-Thursday 12 - 5 PM and Friday-Saturday 12 - 7 PM. Last call for wine is 30 minutes prior to closing each day. The top level of the deck is reserved for those 21 and up only, and pets are not permitted inside the deck but are allowed on the patio. Parties larger than 8 guests are not permitted at the Pavilion, and very limited seating is available for parties larger than 4 guests. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis, and no reservations are accepted. If the Pavilion is full, picnic tables are available near our Duck Pond. You may order bottles of wine and snacks from our wine shop to bring down to the picnic tables. In case of rain or other inclement weather, the winery may not be able to provide shelter or covered seating.


For the safety of our staff and fellow guests, we ask that you wear a face covering or mask when you are not seated at your table. Bar seating and bar service remains unavailable in accordance with the Governor of Virginia's Executive Order 67 requiring that all bars remain closed inside food and beverage establishments. Please find a seat and one of our staff will serve you at your table. Please do not move tables or chairs without assistance from our staff as all seating is spaced to provide for appropriate social distancing.


We have live music every Friday night from 4-7 PM through October 30 (weather permitting). Sip on delicious Virginia wine while overlooking the vineyards and enjoying the music.


Featuring a 2-level deck overlooking the Albariño and the Petit Verdot vineyards PLUS an outdoor terrace with a fire pit. 


Sunday – Thursday 12 PM to 5 PM

The 1619 Wine Pavilion is a place for you and your guests to enjoy wine in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.  On Friday and Saturday evenings from March 16 through October 31, the Pavilion will have a staffed wine bar where you can order wine by the glass or bottle. At other times, you may order wine by the glass or by the bottle from the Wine Shop and bring it over to enjoy on the Pavilion. No alcohol may be brought over from the Gabriel Archer Tavern.

The Pavilion is not a restaurant, however, food can be ordered to-go from the Gabriel Archer Tavern and enjoyed on the Pavilion. You can also choose from a wide selection of artisanal meats and cheeses from the Wine Shop. No coolers or outside alcohol are permitted.

Leashed dogs are welcome on the terrace, families with children are also invited to enjoy the lower deck, while the 2nd floor is reserved for adults 21+.

The 1619 Wine Pavilion was named in honor of the 400th Anniversary of the Acte 12 of 1619.
“The Acte 12 of 1619 required all landowners to plant and maintain 10 grapevines for the purpose of making wine in Colonial Virginia.”
