Tarara Winery

Tarara Winery

Tarara has crafted elegant wines from the finest fruit for 20 years. Small lots of handcrafted wines of the finest varietals, with an emphasis on the Bordeaux classics, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, are artistically created.

Whitie Hubert spent 40 successful years in the construction business, but when he retired, the vineyard beckoned. Born and raised on a farm in Ohio, Whitie spent his youth growing grapes for Welch's Grape Juice Company with his father and brother. So in 1975, the promise of a return to viticulture led Whitie and his wife Margaret to purchase 475 acres of prime Virginia farmland nestled along the Potomac River. In 1985, they built Tarara where, today, award-winning wines are produced.

In the 60 acres of vineyards, they focus on just one thing: making superb wine. As the river wraps around Tarara, it protects it from freezes in the winter and keeps it cooler in the summer, producing lush and flavorful fruit.

The special climate and soils of Tarara’s vineyard help create grapes with intense flavors, soft firm tannins and good acid balance. The wines produced from these excellent grapes are age worthy as well as being very approachable at release.

They handpick and use the best fruit available and handle the wine with care through every step of the winemaking process. Each year brings new grapes with their own distinct character and each year, Tarara's wines are carefully crafted to showcase their nature. They are always subtle, well-structured, food friendly wines.

For Whitie and Margaret, sharing wine is a celebration of life, and sharing their vineyard in this set-apart place is an affirmation of all the things they love best: nature, music, art, and architecture.
