Wineries in Southwestern Virginia?

After a marvelously long Thanksgiving week visiting family and friends from Tennessee to Texas, we’re coming back to reality. This is actually very good, the Christmas decorations are beckoning to be displayed, getting a head start on organizing for the new year and our real estate listings need some TLC.  2012 is around the corner and I’m looking for wine related topics to cover for the future.

We’ll be passing through southwestern Virginia and on up to Charlottesville in the next two days. Any suggestions or curiosity regarding grapes or wineries through this region?   Chateau Morrisette certainly one of interest.  I’m excited to visit Rockbridge next weekend for their Christmas open house!   We actually tried some wine from Arkansas and I have to admit, it was smoother than the roads we bumped along.  In the meantime, I’d  love your input before we hit the highway again!

  1. Hey Tricia,
    If it’s not too late to make a suggestion: check out Villa Appalachia by Chateau Morrisette. They make Italian varietals. We visited them to talk about Sangiovese clones for our expansion. Great people!

    1. Awesome! I wish I had an endless amount of time off to visit all the wineries and events year round. My Mom is coming to visit an I’m deciding which winery(ies) to take her to visit. Criteria for winter is a fabulously cozy fireplace! Considering Afton Mountain, King Family and Veritas! Just hit two in the Shenandoah Valley-Barren Ridge and Rockbridge-great stops for travellers stressing on Interstate 81!
