Forged in the mountains of Southwestern Virginia, Iron Heart Winery is run by a Father-Son team. Built from the ground up, a farm with history in America’s Industrial Revolution circa 1882 is being transformed into a modern day escape. The duo works to create a unique and sustainable business while providing a quality product, and experience, for the consumer. The pair works day and night to launch the fledgling business on the land where they were both born and raised (50 years apart).
Iron Heart Winery will start wine production in September 2016.
Four fully furnished homes. The property surrounds an Iron Furnace circa 1882 and provides a beautiful setting for your event overlooking a stream and vineyard.

IRON HEART WINERY: We highly recommend!! You can’t beat the views, hospitality, history and AMAZING wines!!! Much success to come, definitely check them out!! My favorite of the local wineries by a long shot! Thanks for an awesome Saturday afternoon!
Loved our visit yesterday! Tasting room is beautifully renovated. Wine delicious. View spectacular. Blessed to have this in Pulaski County. And a special treat was having Rosie entertain us playing fetch.
Iron Heart Winery is just off of Interstate 81 in Pulaski County. The winery and tasting room are new, but the vineyard has been in production for a number of years. Grapes have been grown and sold on the open market like other agricultural crops. Me, I love the site and the setting just above Reed Island Creek on a wide, almost flat plane with a gentle slope. Every foot of the vineyard can be walked and worked, with soils capable of producing flavorful grapes. The views are wonderful, too. Come the spring 2017, I think Iron Heart is going to be the stopping place for me. I just might stay over in one of the Farm-Stay cabins, even if it’s not at all far from where I live.
I raise my wine glass to Iron Heart for labels, Yes labels. To me, it shows a commitment to the Family and regional history. That commitment transfers right into their wine quality. You will see what I mean when you visit.
I have had the privilege of tasting their Chambourcin, Chardonnay, Riesling and Rose. I found the Chambourcin to have a deep red color, a very pleasant floral bouquet on the nose, lightly acidic on the pallet with somewhat of an herbal quality; with slight sweet finish. The Chardonnay was a pleasure to taste. It was everything that I expected. I found the wine to have a light green apple in the front of my mouth and flinty finish. It too had a slight hint of sweetness.
Riesling is one my all-time favorite wines. Iron Heart Riesling fits into that category. The smell of honey suckles fills the glass and the taste of the honeysuckle follows. I also taste fresh peaches as the wine closes with long finish. The 2.5% sugar matches the wine to a tee!
The Rose said summer to me. The light color kind of matches some the spring red buds growing along Reed Island Creek. The Slight hint of strawberries was refreshing. The Rose has a very pleasant higher acidic finish than most Rose. I think you are going to like the Rose on warm summer evening.
Well that is my opinion. I think that you are going need to make your own trip to Iron Heart Winery. Go for the wine, go for the view, go for the people and go for the history of the iron works and the railroad!
