Are children allowed?
We are a family-friendly winery however we do insist that all children are under DIRECT adult supervision at all times! Keep in mind that some of our patrons desire a quieter winery experience so please be respectful of our other customers and our property. In addition to being a winery we are also a working farm and our vineyard and winemaking areas are not kid-friendly. If you have any questions about these areas do not hesitate to ask any of our staff members!
Are dogs allowed?
We welcome animal companions on the property year-round, though they must remain outside and on a leash at all times to ensure every guest’s comfort. We will ask pet owners whose pets are not leashed to leave the property. Please clean up after your pet while you are visiting. We do have an outdoor tasting area that is open when the weather permits.
Do you offer food?
We offer an array of gourmet food selections individually packaged for your convenience. Our offerings include artisan cheeses, gourmet meats, bread, crackers, and plenty of water. Selections vary and some items are sold out very quickly!

You are welcome to bring your own food but please note that Virginia Law prohibits guests from consuming outside alcohol on the winery property. Anyone who brings alcohol onto our property will be asked to leave and the alcohol confiscated and poured out (per VA ABC law).

When was the house built
The original 2-story portion was built in 1797. The Benonis built on to the original structure and that portion was finished in 1830.
Is the house haunted?
Multiple ghost hunting teams have visited the property and home and claimed the presence of Benoni Harrison, a Civil War soldier, and the ghost of a little girl. Several of the staff have their own personal stories as well.
Who was Benoni Harrison?
Benoni Harrison was the owner of the estate from 1827, when he purchased the land at auction, until his death in 1869. He is the one who named the estate La Grange. Benoni was Prince William County’s Delegate to the General Assembly in 1849 and 1850.
