I’ve actually visited CrossKeys Vineyard twice. The first time, I attended JMU ADPi’s Mallard Ball and we had reserved the patio. As an event space, CrossKeys is gorgeous day and night. The building itself makes an amazing backdrop. If that isn’t enough, when you visit CrossKeys you are surrounded by the picturesque vines and the Blue Ridge Mountains. At night, you lose the view but the spacious patio is ambient under a lattice of Christmas lights.
