About Boxwood Estate Winery

Producing Bordeaux-style blends from low yielding vines in Middleburg, Virginia.

Read More

Boxwood Estate Winery in the Middleburg Virginia AVA is the fulfillment of a long-held dream by proprietor John Kent Cooke, former owner and president of the NFL Washington Redskins. An admirer and collector of French wines, particularly great Bordeaux. Cooke is committed to making premium red and white wines in the Bordeaux tradition with their own distinct Virginia expression.

Boxwood Winery is located in an area steeped in Revolutionary and Civil War history and renowned for world- famous horse farms. Today the area is also known as a wine region: Virginia being the fifth largest wine producing state. The Boxwood sustainable vineyards occupy 26.5 acres of the historical landmark farm and are planted with traditional Bordeaux varietals ENTAV certified: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris. Noted viticulturist Lucie Morton has been the vineyard consultant since the founding of the winery.

The stunning modern-style winery, completed in 2005, was designed by prominent architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, with winery consultant Dr. Richard Vine, Head of the Oenology Department at Purdue University. The winery complex, which features four buildings and a circular underground aging cellar with French barrels, is modern but harmonious with the historic farm and the Virginia countryside. State-of-the-art equipment was chosen from the USA, Italy, and France. The annual capacity at Boxwood is limited to 5,000 cases.

Internationally acclaimed Stephane Derenoncourt has been consultant to Boxwood since the winery was established.

Boxwood Estate Winery is managed by John Kent Cooke and Vice President Sean Martin.

Sunday Preferred Tasting: Half Price! on 11/10/19 12:30 PM

The grounds were beautiful. The tasting room was nice. I made a reservation for a party of 8 - all first time visitors of Boxwood. I provided comments in the reservation stating that we were celebrating, but this info must not have been passed on. The charcuterie board provided was subpar and insufficient for a party of 8. No other food options, so we left hungry. Staff was very pleasant.

Nice Boutique winery with some wonderful products. Outdoor seating area nice, but insects are a bit of a problem. Food provided was tasty and sufficient for our party. Only knock, and it's not a big one, but the pours were a little light. $20 fee should provide a little more than 5 minimal tastes. Had the 17s available been included in the tasting, it would have seemed a fairer offering.

Group Tasting Experience on 10/12/19 12:30 PM

Came here for a group tasting. The group tasting was on the more expensive side but I wanted to try this winery out. My experience at the winery itself was very enjoyable and the staff were great. However, after being told on the phone that the tasting would cost $20 per person, we showed up on the day of the event and I was charged that plus a mandatory 18% gratuity. This automatic gratuity was never mentioned to me when I called to make the reservation. I called to discuss this matter and dealt with an extremely rude person that refused to even apologize, let alone make the situation right.

Our party was greeted very promptly my Mark who welcomed us as soon as we got off our bus. He gave us a tour, answered questions, then brought us up to the pavilion for our tasting. He was engaging, knowledgeable, and helped make us feel at home. I cannot say enough good things about Mark and the experience he helped us enjoy while at Boxwood.
