Answers to our most Frequently Asked Questions

Q.  Do you allow dogs at the winery?
A.  We love dogs.  In fact, we all have dogs of our own.  However, we do not allow dogs
inside the manor house.  Dogs are welcome outside and on a leash.

Q.  Are children allowed at the winery?
A.  While most wineries are adult focused environments, well behaved children are
always welcome at Valerie Hill, but no one under the age of 21 is allowed to stand at
our tasting bar.  Select areas both inside and out are reserved for adults over the age
of 21.  In addition, all children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult at
all times.  Families or social groups with multiple small children are encouraged to sit
outside in order to preserve indoor and porch seating for our adult guests.  Guests with
a child whose behavior consistently interrupts the peaceful enjoyment adult guests
expect during a winery visit will be asked to leave.

Q.  Do I need a reservation?
A.  We do not require reservations, but groups of 8 or more should call ahead to
advise us of your arrival and to ensure that your tasting will not be delayed due to
another large group.

Q.  Do you allow outside food and beverages?
A.  Guests are welcome to bring food items or picnics to Valerie Hill, but we also have
a lite fare menu daily and seasonal food specials on weekends.  Our goal is for you to
enjoy our wine!  Alcoholic beverages not purchased at Valerie Hill are prohibited on
our property in accordance with Virginia ABC laws.

Q.  Are your logo glasses included in your tasting fee?
A.  Logo glasses are not included in the tasting fee but can be purchased for a nominal charge.

Q.  Do you host special events?
A.  Yes!  Depending on the type of event, date and time, and number of guests,
Valerie Hill can host a variety of special events.  Contact us for more specific information.

Q.  Can we reserve seating for our visit.
A.  All seating, both inside and out, is offered on a first come, first served basis.
