This is currently the only #cidery in the world to be fermenting and aging in buried terra cotta amphorae called kvevri.

    Here was yesterday's breathtaking #sunrise yesterday over #JoelSalatin's #farmhouse on #PolyfaceFarm in Swoope, #Virginia. Polyface is a family-owned, multi-generational, pasture-based, organic farm open for tours and visitors. They also supply many local farm-to-table restaurants with #Shenandoah's finest. The outreach done by these loving people is truly moving and admirable. #loveva #goodmorning #photooftheday #vatravel #farmlife

    Fall in the Highlands = Music & More!

    by Casey | Posted on August 27th, 2010

    Get fall started early with a trip to Virginia’s Blue Ridge Highlands. The perfect event to kick it all off? Why, the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, of course!

    If you didn’t know it, this area of Virginia is known as the “Birthplace of Country Music” and you can witness the musical talent first-hand September 17-19, 2010, during the 10th Anniversary of the Reunion.

    Reunion musicians include the The Del McCoury Band, Drive By Truckers, Gerald Anderson & Friends, Joe Diffie Bluegrass Band, John Anderson, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Wayne Henderson, and so many more, all scattered across four outdoor stages, a dance tent and 16 indoor venues!

    Spend some time looking around while you’re in the neighborhood.  If you appreciate architecture, a stroll through Bristol’s Solar Hill Historic District will fix you right up, as well as feed any astronomy cravings you might have.

    Have time to get out and about on a bike or hike? You can’t miss the Virginia Creeper Trail! It’s over 34 miles of stunning foliage and includes amazing wildlife viewing and scenic points of interest. No doubt you’ll enjoy Mount Rogers and Whitetop Mountain. 

    If quaint downtowns interest you, Abingdon Historic District, a 20-block town founded in 1778, is a must. The historic buildings house great shopping and culinary treats a’plenty, not to mention Barter Theatre - the State Theatre of Virginia.

    For some of you, The Reunion will have only increased your hankering for more music. Should that be the case, you must visit some of the stops along The Crooked Road: Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail.
