  • We had visited other wineries in the area but this was our first trip to Chester Gap Cellars. It is smaller in scope but very inviting with friendly and knowledgeable servers along with a killer view!...  more »

  • Thank you Chelsey for a great tasting. Had a great return to Chester Gap Cellars after a few years of not visiting. I must say that I'm re-in-love with their Cabernet Franc (2013). Will make sure not to let so much time pass before I return.
  • Knowledgeable staff in a beautiful setting We didn't know anything about Chester Gap when we decided to go there. We learned about the property and did a tasting. Great wines and great view. Would go back!
  • Great wine & learned a lot!
  • If you like Viognier, that seems to be their specialty with the whites and you'll love it. Regardless of your taste in wine though, this winery has one of the best views I've seen at a Virginia winery. Barrel Oak is a close second, but this view was unmarred by houses, etc. Just gorgeous views of the valley - will definitely be coming back for the foliage season.
