Region: Central Virginia
We hand-crush local grapes, hand-pump the juice, hand-transfer the wine, hand-bottle and hand-label! Truly a local "hands on" operation! What sets Rebec Vineyards apart from the rest is the tender loving care each bottle receives. Svet Kanev, winemaker, croons to the wine as he bottles. The secret is not in the tonality of his singing (just ask his assistant) but in the songs themselves, which are Bulgarian folk tunes!
Opened to the public in 1987, Rebec's selection has grown to over 15 distinct wines, including Viognier, Gewurztraminer, sweet Riesling, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, the blends Autumn Glow and Sweet Sofia, and our new fruit wines, Cherry and Pear.
Rebec's Wine and Garlic Festival, annually since 1991, is one of Virginia's largest festivals and is held on the second full weekend in October. Join us for a stinking good time!
