Native American Winery Discovered

  While in the Fredericksburg area we encountered a Native American winery.  The Mattaponi Winery is the only one we know of that is operated by Native Americans. There may be many more but it sure was interesting to Linda and I.

  The front of their trading post.

Main entrance to the trading post

We liked their sign hanging inside.

Their wines have won national awards and are most known for their strawberry wine.

I always have liked dream catchers.

Deer head make the trading post look more rustic.


  1. Looks good, how were the wines? Did you taste them?

  2. What a nice place, Odie. I like dream catchers too.

  3. the strawberry wine has me intrigued. Did you sample it?

  4. I did not know until now there are Native American wineries!

  5. I did not know that either Shelly. I have not been for a wine tasting in a long time. If I lived a bit closer I would try their wine.
    Thanks Odie:-)

  6. I would love to see that place. It looks exactly like a place I would want to live in.

  7. I'd never even heard of dream-catchers until recently.

  8. I'm wondering if you bought any wines home with you! It certainly looks very interesting, and I love dream catchers. Hope you have a lovely weekend my friend.
