Located on the Higgs family’s former apple orchard, Barren Ridge Vineyards is now home to Augusta County’s premier winery, Barren Ridge Vineyards. John and Shelby Higgs cleared the overgrown land and planted it with grapevines that now produce award-winning wines.
They also converted their 1890′s apple barn into a state-of-the-art winery, preserving the original structure and wooden beams. The Tasting Room features carefully handcrafted wines that are available daily for tastings.
The winery is open seven days a week for complimentary tours, and the patio is always ready for picnics and sunset-viewing.
