October is Virginia Wine Month

I love crisp fall afternoons spent with cheese and wine out in Virginia’s county. It’s always nice to gather up a group of friends and relax on the porch of a vineyard. Handy, isn’t it, that October is Virginia Wine Month! With more than 140 wineries, wine trails, wine festivals and wine packages, there’s no excuse NOT to visit Virginia’s wine country this month. For those of you looking to make a weekend out of it, there are packages as cheap as $125. But DC is perfectly situated for a day trip, so those are equally as easy and good for those of us who sport a blackberry ball and chain and are tethered to the whims of Congress.

Personally? I love Breaux Vineyards, they have a gorgeous set-up and some of my favorite Virginia wines. WLDC Author Donna recommends Barrel Oak Winery. I did a write-up last fall of Linden and Naked Mountain. What are your favorites?

Katie moved to DC in 2007, and has since embarked upon a love affair with the city. She’s an education reform advocate and communications professional during the day; at night and on the weekends, she’s an owner here at We Love DC. Katie has high goals to eat herself through the entire city, with only her running shoes to save her from herself. For up-to-the-minute news and reviews (among other musings), follow her on Twitter!
