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?
