The Virginia Wineries Association (www.virginiawines.org) divides the state up into five geographical areas, among them Eastern, Northern, Central, Southwest and Shenandoah Valley. There are many wineries close to the Shenandoah Valley region in the Central region, including one of my favorite on the western side of the mountains, Rockbridge. Check out the website and look at the maps. You are bound to find some great wineries - and - generally - all the views up there are great.
Also, a new wine magazine devoted to Virginia wine (and food) is starting next year - the website is www.virginiawinelover.com.
Well, to the best of my knowledge, there are only five wineries in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley . . . and I haven't been to any of them.
