Pollak Vineyards, wines, views, & more
Pollak Vineyards is a small family-owned winery located just west of Crozet, VA, in Greenwood, Virginia, USA. The winery was founded in 2003 and includes a beautiful 98-acre farm. Of that 98 acres, the winery includes 34 acres of French vinifera that are used to make estate-grown wine that has the finesse and balance of popular traditional French varietals.
Pollak Vineyards Wine Tasting
The winery is open from 12-5 PM Wednesdays through Sundays, with the exception of major holidays of course. However, they may have special hours around the holidays for that family tasting fun. Pollak Vineyards' spacious and open tasting room and patio offer views of some of the first vines planted, their large pond, and the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains. All these combine to make it quite the scenic setting in which to enjoy a glass of tasty wine. While they do not have an onsite restaurant, they do serve an assortment of snacks and drinks, or you may bring your own picnic or snacks!
The Wines of Pollak Vineyards
Pollak Vineyards is incredibly proud of its estate-grown wine, that can be seen throughout their tasting process and vineyard acres. They have found balance and deliciousness in each wine varietal they produce. The winery creates a variety of wines, including red, white, and rosé wines, as well as scrumptious dessert wines. Pollak Vineyards has several awards to their name for their wines. This number includes a staggering five gold medals at the 2023 Virginia Governor’s Cup wine competition. The winery’s wines are available for purchase at the winery if you’re local or online if you’re not.
The Smuggler Society
Pollak Vineyards wine club is called “The Smuggler Society”. It is named after one of the winery’s favorite vineyard sites and one of the silver mines in Aspen founded by one of the owner’s great-grandfather so it is near and dear to their hearts. If you become a member of the wine club you’ll receive a selection of four bottles of wine three times a year, as well as other benefits such as discounts on wine purchases, invitations to special Smuggler-only events and other goodies.
Pollak Vineyards also regularly hosts special events throughout the year, such as live music performances. They offer a beautiful setting and facility for special events, including weddings. Their tasting room includes a warm and inviting fireplace on one side, long tasting bar with open mezzanine above, and soaring beautifully built vaulted ceiling. The room opens onto a wrap-around veranda with surrounding views of the vineyards, mountains, and pond offering spaces versatile for many uses and tables.
