Dear Tasters… A multi-level, multi-year construction project across the street from our current location will be commencing soon and we have thus decided not to renew our lease here. We will be in search of a new expanded site so please stay tuned for an update on that search. Our last day open will be Sat, Aug 29, 4-8pm. Please come by for a goodbye toast!
We thank you for your patronage over the last two years and we look forward to seeing many of you down at the vineyard until our new location opens. Don’t miss Ankida’s fall event, “Hail to the Harvest!” Sept 19, 12-5pm. See you there. Cheers to all our Ankida wine lovers!
WELCOME TO 22BRIX, a unique and exciting wine room & shop located in the heart of downtown Charlottesville. Join us for a relaxing tasting at the bar, a glass of wine on the front porch or stop by to purchase wine on the way to your next destination. In addition to the ANKIDA RIDGE wines, we stock a select number of hard-to-find and retired wines from some of Virginia’s top wineries including Stinson, Veritas, King Family, Blenheim, Early Mountain and DelFosse.
We are the remote tasting room for Ankida Ridge Vineyards, a family-run micro vineyard located at 1800 ft on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Central Virginia. Coined as Virginia’s “Little Burgundy”, Ankida Ridge’s granite soils have given birth to roughly two acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines through environmentally sensitive viticulture. Now four vintages deep, the Ankida family is excited to finally bring the rugged beauty of our mountain vineyard to Charlottesville.
EVERY VINEYARD HAS A STORY, and Ankida’s is one we are very excited to share with you. With an emphasis on wine appreciation and education, 22BRIX is not only bringing the wines of Ankida Ridge to your tasting room experience, but also the rich and eclectic story of how they came to be. From rootstock to bottle, we want our sippers to understand why our wines taste the way they do, and furthermore, why Virginia terroir is fast becoming the new leader in East Coast wine production.
FEATURING monthly tasting events, local musicians, and other Virginia wines for sale, we want the community of Charlottesville to think of 22BRIX as their local wine community center – a spot to drink it, chat about it, understand it, and most importantly, to enjoy it. So whether you’re stopping in for a taste at the bar, a glass on our front porch, or cozying up with a bottle and a friend at our old wooden community table, we want our sippers to walk away feeling like they too have been a part of the ever-unfolding Ankida Ridge story.
COME SIP WITH US!
