The history of Spotsylvania has inspired Mattaponi Winery to bring forth and share with generations to come, the beginning events about the settlers and the Native American Indians in our area.
The name comes from the four rivers in Spotsylvania County, Virginia: Mat, Ta, Po, and Ni, which forms the Mattaponi River. The name “Mattaponi” has been used in history to name the Indian tribe once ruled by Chief Powhatan, Pocahontas’ father.
In the beginning, the Native American Indians showed the settlers how to survive on these berries, and today we would like to present to you these same delightful berries of Virginia as a wine.
Come to our charming log cabin and relax with others with the perfect blend of our Award-Winning and Specialty wines. We have used the Virginia Algonquin language to name some of our wines, which is the Native American Indian language that was almost lost until you took a taste in time.
Come join us and take a journey in history with our New World of Wines at Mattaponi Winery.
