There are currently over 240 wineries in Virginia bottling both still and sparkling wines. From the Little Washington Winery‘s George that they call ‘red wine on training wheels’ to Peaks of Otter‘s ghost pepper infused wine named Kiss the Devil , everyone can find something that suits their palate. You can download your full 2014 VA Wine Guide here.
Over the next few posts, I am going to share my experiences at the wineries I have visited. Hopefully this will inspire you to get out and taste!
I suggest that you start slow and visit the wineries closest to you. Next, you can try visiting all of the stops on a wine trail such as any of the Monticello Wine Trails. Just make sure if you’re at a day long festival, Kiss the Devil last so that you don’t ruin your tastebuds. Speaking of festivals, The Virginia Wine Expo is February 18th-23rd! Mark your calendars or visit mine!
