    #Downtown #Staunton is filled with amazing #architecture including the Romanesque-Revival Marquis Building seen here. It was designed by T.J. Collins in 1895 (he designed nearly 200 buildings throughout the city in various styles during the #Victorian Era). Note the large umbrella fixed to the corner of the turret! #loveva #virginia #vatravel #mainstreet #vais4lovers #oldschoolva
    Check out this awesome #aerial of the CSX A-Line #Train #Bridge (circa 1919) you've probably seen when driving on the Powhite Parkway crossing #JamesRiver!

    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.
    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

    Thomas Jefferson Wine Festival at Poplar HillNumbering just a few shy of 200, Virginia’s wineries pour their best blends at numerous festivals dedicated to the fruits of their labors. Far too numerous for this to ever be a comprehensive post, here are a few key events you’ll want to jot down. Don’t worry, you can dig further and fill up your days by visiting Virginia.org/WineFestivals.

        We have many more on Virginia.org, as stated in the post. Yet, that probably isn’t even a comprehensive list. We rely on the event organizers, wineries, and local tourism officials to keep us in the know. Thanks for your comment!
