Crawford, Virginia, and is open to the public Monday through Thursday from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm with adjusted hours on Fridays and Saturdays until 7:00 pm and on Sundays until 4:00 pm. Crosskeys Vineyards is no more than 15 minutes from Harrisonburg and is a family-owned establishment that encompasses an impressive 125 acres of lush terrain. Guests are invited to come to Crosskeys Vineyards and embrace the very best of a Tuscan-style villa experience hosting a gourmet bistro. Whether you stop by for a glass or you linger with friends for an afternoon of fun, time here includes amazing panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from just about every vantage point. The first vines were planted at Crosskeys Vineyards in 2001 and today, the vineyard thrives through the production of a variety of varietals. Full-service dining at the on-site bistro opened in 2010 and the creation of a new production facility will push the vineyard’s production capabilities to upward of 15,000 cases annually.
