October is Virginia Wine month and the weather is cooperating with gorgeous days, so why not go visit one of Virginia’s 134 wineries? During this celebratory month, our wineries host live music, great events and lots of amazing Virginia wine-tastings! The energy is high from the recent crush, the vineyards are spilling with colors and the varieties of wines are plentiful. Check out the vineyard guide in the latest issue of The Piedmont Virginian for up-to-date listings and contact information. You can
also browse VirginiaWine.org’s website; it is full of events and ideas all at the click of a mouse. They have just rolled out the new website and it is very well done. You can also check out the local wine trails: Fauquier Wine Trail, Loudoun Wine Trail, Monticello Wine Trail. Or you could just drive around for a bit, and follow the ‘bunch of grapes’ road-markers. Be sure to drop us a line about your wine tasting experience and favorite wines.
