    Sip away the end of #summer at North Gate #Vineyard in Pucellville before the crush begins! They have live music every Friday evening (TGIF: Thank Grape It's Friday), making it an ideal time to stop by for a taste. Next month is #Virginia #Wine Month, when a lot of vineyards across the state will be harvesting their #grapes. Photo props to @emkittie! #VAwine #howisummer #winetime Tag your #VA photos with #LoveVA for a chance to get featured here.

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

  • Stir Up Something Delightful

    by Casey | Posted on August 8th, 2011

    Don’t you see “romance” written all over a cooking class? We do!

    What can be more romantic than preparing a delightful dinner together? Partner up at one of these cooking classes to learn something new. Together!

    • Cooking ClassLaughing Duck Gardens & Cookery is located in Washington, VA. Sign up to prepare a seasonal meal with another couple! Upcoming dates: September 4, October 4, November 13, and December 4. $75/person
    • Cooper’s Landing Inn & Traveler’s Tavern is perfectly situated along the lake in Clarksville. Make a weekend out of this class when you stay two nights. Included is a five-course chef’s tasting dinner and wine pairing, cheese reception, breakfast, four hours of classes, elegant lunch, afternoon tea, two of your very own Cooper’s Landing aprons, and a binder of recipes. Package offered October 23-25 for $700, or book a class only on August 22 for $65/person.
    • Mise en Place in Richmond is a team building cooking school. You’re a team, right? There just so happens to be “Couples Who Cook” classes offered monthly. Upcoming: August 18 and September 9. The cost is $120/couple.
    • Cookology at Dulles Town Center in Sterling offers trendy food and wine cooking. At 90 minutes per session and $45/person, it’s a good date night option.

    Once you’ve mastered a few tricks of the trade in the kitchen, head out to your nearby farmers’ market to grab a stash of fresh produce. You’ll be amazed at much better everything tastes when it’s fresh-plucked.
