Located on the family’s former apple orchard, Barren Ridge Vineyards is now home to Augusta County’s premier winery. John and Shelby Higgs converted their old apple packing barn and transformed it into a state-of-the-art winery, tasting room, and event facility. They used reclaimed wood and preserved the charm and character of the original structure. The tasting room features wonderful wines that are available daily for complimentary tours and tastings.
Barren Ridge hosts a number of events throughout the season. Every Friday and Saturday evening soloist come in and play music in the tasting room, usually playing folk, jazz, blues, country, bluegrass, and acoustic rock covers. Every third Friday of the month is our “Firelight Friday” where we welcome a larger music act and a food truck. Check our website or Facebook page for current events.
