Hartwood Winery opened in the spring of 1989 in the rural community of Hartwood, Stafford County, VA. “Hart” is the Old English word for deer, and according to local legend, is the basis for the area’s name. Just 15 minutes west of Fredericksburg, Hartwood is an area long known for its heavy deer population, and in turn, the deer has become the winery’s logo. artwood Winery’s wines are available at the winery and selected outlets, primarily in the Fredericksburg area.
