  • Wine: A Winter Warmer

    by Casey | Posted on December 15th, 2010

    Trails grant easy access to a multitude of Virginia wineries, making it easy to find one (or more) to love! Beat the cold with trail tastings (chauffeured by a designated driver, of course).

Photo by CameronDavidson@CameronDavidson.comHop onto the Mountain Road Wine Experience in the Blue Ridge Highlands to sample the best of Villa Appalaccia and Chateau Morrisette, not to mention two of Virginia’s unique  non-winery, alcoholic concoction-making establishments: Blacksnake Meadery and Foggy Ridge Cider!

    In the northern Shenandoah Valley you’ll find a series of ten wineries linked together on the General’s Wine & History Trail: Bluemont Vineyard, Lost Creek Vineyard & Winery, Gadino Cellars, Philip Carter Winery, Fox Meadow Winery, Sunset Hills Vineyard, Swedenburg Estate Vineyard, Three Fox Vineyards, Winery at La Grange, and Veramar Vineyard. Stops at even half of those will definitely do you in for the day! This trail is convenient from Charlestown, West Virginia, Frederick, Maryland, and Washington, DC.

    Just north of Richmond is the Heart of Virginia Wine Trail, which includes Cooper Vineyards, Grayhaven Winery, James River Cellars Winery and Lake Anna Winery. Access these wineries easily from Fredericksburg and Charlottesville.

    Travelers south may choose to stop at one of the nine SoVA Wine Trail‘s (that’s Southern Virginia) wineries: Annefield Vineyards, Bright Meadows Farm, DeVault Family Vineyards, Greenwood Vineyards, Hickory Hill Vineyards & Winery, Hunting Creek Vineyards, Molliver Vineyards, Sans Soucy Vineyards, Spring Creek Wine Cellars, and Tomahawk Mill Winery. These stops are little more than an hour from Raleigh and Greensboro, North Carolina.

    These trails are just a tease of the many awaiting your travels in Virginia. Learn more at the Virginia is for Lovers wine site!
