Frequently Asked Questions

 

Do you allow dogs?

We love dogs, but they are not allowed at Effingham Manor for the general safety and comfort of everyone. Service animals are exempt.

Do you allow children?

Effingham Manor is adults-only. We ask that all guests be age 21 and over (this means no infants and children).  

What are the options for wine tastings?

There are three options for tasting our wines:

What holidays are you open or closed?

We are open everyday except Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Years Day.

How long does the tasting last?

Depending on the size of your group, the tasting will range from 30 minutes to one hour. If you are planning to stop at multiple wineries, we suggest adding 15 minutes on either end to allow time for pictures, using the restroom, and checking out.

Are picnic tables available? Can we reserve picnic tables?

Picnic tables are available on a first come basis. Reserving picnic tables requires a $100 credit applied to a gift card, which can be used at your visit. You can reserve your table(s) by calling 703-594-2300 in advance.

Are buses and limousines allowed?

In most situations, yes. Vehicles larger than a 15-passenger vehicle are not allowed on the estate property. Please be aware that we do not provide tastings to groups arriving by KegBus or Boomerang Bus.

Additionally, be aware that regulations prohibit parking of any vehicles on the shoulders of the road leading to the winery.

Do we get to keep the wine glasses?

Our wine glasses can be purchased for $3.00 each.

Do you have food for sale?

We do have an assortment of meats, cheeses and spreads available for purchase. (See list.) On most weekends, we host a local food vendor. (See Upcoming Events.)

Do you allow outside food?

We encourage customers to enjoy the foods we have available. 12-quart coolers or smaller are allowed. Barrel owners and wine club members are welcome with their food as part of their program.

Do you allow outside alcoholic beverages?

NO! Virginia State Law strictly prohibits all off-site liquor, beer and wine on our property. If you have purchased wine at other Virginia wineries, we kindly ask that it remain in your vehicle. Please respect this law, as our license is in jeopardy with any violations.

Do you serve beer?

We are strictly a wine facility.

We have a 3-bottle minimum per shipment. Our standard shipping rate is $20 for 3-6 bottles and $30 for 7-12 bottles. Please call the tasting room at 703-594-2300 to receive a quote on shipments of more than 12 bottles or to see if we are able to ship to you.

Enjoy 10% off a purchase of 6-11 bottles and 20% off a purchase of 12 or more bottles. Monday thru Friday we offer 30% off a purchase of 12 or more bottles!

Is the winery wheelchair accessible?

The Manor House is not but the Event Center is. Please call 703-594-2300 and we will make sure arrangements are made to accommodate you.
