Blue Valley Vineyard and Winery

The award-winning wines, along with breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley make Blue Valley Vineyard and Winery a premiere destination in Fauquier County. The Zissios family believes the key to making good wine is patience and attention to detail. An ideal that is upheld daily by​ the family’s belief in strong family values, friends, and of course great wine!

About Blue Valley:

The Zissios family journey began in the scenic mountains of Greece when Yianni (John) Zissios started making wine with his grandfather at the age of 9. What started as tradition turned into a passion. Memories of winemaking inspired the Zissios family to bring their legacy to the Shenandoah.
