    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.

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

    Tomorrow, September 24, is National Hunting and Fishing Day. No, it is not a day for hunting and fishing, but a day of recognition for true hunters and fishermen who are conservation minded.

    About National Hunting and Fishing Day
    “On May 2, 1972, President Nixon signed the first proclamation of National Hunting and Fishing Day, writing, ‘I urge all citizens to join with outdoor sportsmen in the wise use of our natural resources and in insuring their proper management for the benefit of future generations.’”

    “National Hunting and Fishing Day, celebrated the fourth Saturday of every September, remains the most effective grassroots efforts ever undertaken to promote the outdoor sports and conservation.”┬á (nhfday.org)

    Each year an honorary chairperson is recognized for National Hunting and Fishing Day. In 2000, Ward Burton, a┬áNASCAR┬áDaytona 500 winner┬áand avid┬áconservationist from Virginia held the chair. “Conservation is a balance between progress and taking care of our natural resources,” said Burton in a 2008 “Portrait of Passion” video for Virginia Tourism Corporation.

    In honor of National Hunting and Fishing Day, we invite you to explore Fish Virginia First, the Mid-Atlantic’s premier fishing trail encompassing the streams, lakes and rivers of 38 Virginia localities. (explore the trail)
