VA wine country trip this Sunday: winery and lunch suggestions?
Some friends and I are going to spend Sunday touring around some wineries in VA, we will be coming from central DC in a car, with a designated driver.
I am looking for:
-recommendations for specific wineries (we are quite open, not big connaisseurs)
-recommendation for a place to eat lunch - or is it better to pack a picnic?
All advice is appreciated, thanks!!
We ended up packing a picnic lunch, and very much enjoyed Three Foxes and Linden. Less impressed by the cheezier Barrel Oak. Three Foxes had the biggest tasting (10 wines for $7), multiple games (bocce, cornhole, etc.) and nice picnic spots, and hammocks and a swing next to a beautiful spring! What a fun outing.
Also happened to pass by this apple donuts place, where the apple donuts were indeed spectacular.
Thanks for the advice!
What county in Virginia are you looking to go to???? Like Northern Virginia- Warren Co? Loudoun? Or more toward Charlottesville??
I have really enjoyed Paradise Springs in Fairfax, but it isn't very close to many other wineries. Out in Warren- Barrell Oak, Linden, Fox Meadows are worth a stop. Linden or BOW. Glen Manor of course just won the Governor's Cup and would be a great choice too.
