Cardinal Point Winery

Family owned and operated, Cardinal Point Vineyard and Winery lies in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge, in the shadow of Afton Mountain. The first vines were planted in 1985 and the winery opened in 2002.

At Cardinal Point, the winemaker, Tim Gorman, is also the vineyard manager. Tim enjoys expressing his creative side in the cellar, as evidenced by their very popular signature blends.
