    Here's a beautiful shot of @castlehillcider in Keswick posted by @merchcolony_cville. This is currently the only #cidery in the world to be fermenting and aging in buried terra cotta amphorae called kvevri. Plan a trip to try some of the world's finest right here in #Virginia. #loveva #vacider #drinklocal #cville #vatravel #castlehillcider #vaweddings

    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
  • History & Wine: A Match Made in Virginia

    by Casey | Posted on July 27th, 2011

    The Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War and Emancipation has officially begun now that the 150th anniversary of the Battle of First Manassas has been reenacted. Where does that leave us? With plenty of history left to dive into and a few special bottles of wine to sweeten the deal.

    If you’re not familiar with the General’s Wine & History Trail, you’ll want to sip your way through the stories along the way as you become acquainted. The trail meanders a small section of Northern Virginia.

    In Central Virginia, DuCard Vineyards is set to release their 2nd Corps wine complete with a “march on DuCard” with Stonewall Jackson and his men on August 6. The soldiers will camp overnight.

    It’s no secret that Thomas Jefferson tried winemaking. Learn more about his endeavors and those of James Monroe when you attend “Wine and the Founding Fathers,” a lecture and wine tasting at the James Monroe Museum in Fredericksburg on August 19.

    Stratford Hall is the birthplace of Robert E. Lee and also the venue of the Chesapeake Bay Wine & Harvest Festival to be held September 24 and 25. It’s not only a great event of food and wine, but an excellent chance for history buffs to tour the Great House.

    Find more wine events and check out Virginia’s historic sites, too.
