About Us

When Potomac Point Winery & Vineyard was founded in 2007, Skip & Cindi Causey set out to make exceptional wine complete with an immersive experience rich in European ambiance and Virginia hill-side beauty. Their vision of the perfect winery was more than a simple tasting room; it was a place to host, entertain, and dine amongst your friends and family. It is this welcoming, charming, and celebratory experience that drives guests and club members to Stafford, Virginia to enjoy the panoramic vineyard views, detailed architecture, and unmatched atmosphere.

Since 2007, over one hundred additional wineries have opened their doors in Virginia. However, Potomac Point remains one of the few Virginia wineries with an expansive structure and a fully serviced dining option. PPW has been fortunate to receive over one hundred different accolades since they opened their doors; from double gold wine medals to being voted “Best Winery” and everything in between.
In 2019 PPW acquired an additional ten acres to their estate. This new area was deemed Merlot Meadow when they planted over seven hundred new merlot vines in the spring of 2021. In total, PPW sits on twenty-three acres and grows varietals such as Viognier, Petit Manseng, Petit Verdot, and Merlot. Our owner, Skip Causey, currently resides as President of the Vineyard Association; leading the joint effort to promote the viticultural interest of Virginia.

In addition to their unique on-site experiences, Potomac Point also specializes in weddings & private events for up to two hundred guests. Over the past 15 years, PPW has been entered into The Knot Hall of Fame, voted best special event venue by Northern Virginia Magazine, and hosts over one hundred private events annually.
You will feel miles away from the hectic lifestyle of Washington, DC while still being less than an hour’s drive away in Northern, Virginia. With a selection of wine tastings, wine flights, and a full bistro menu, Potomac Point Vineyard and Winery is an unforgettable destination. Come celebrate their 15-year anniversary in 2022 and enjoy a “Step Away from your Everyday”.
