Rolling green hills, pastures of grazing horses, and the Blue Ridge Mountains on the horizon make the heart of Virginia’s horse and wine country the perfect atmosphere for enjoying award-wining wine and delicious food.
On your first day of the tour, taste wine overlooking spectacular views in Loudoun County. There are several charming bed and breakfasts to choose from, including Stone Manor and Hillsborough, which are just minutes away from area wineries.
Once you’re checked-in, head to Hillsborough Vineyards where you can taste wines in a renovated 1840s stone barn and take in picturesque valley views from the terrace. End your day perched high on the Blue Ridge Mountain’s eastern slope at Bluemont Vineyards where you can see for miles and consider making dinner reservations at Grandale Restaurant for some of the finest fresh local fare in the area.
On day two, head to Fauquier County Wine Trail to explore your choice of over 20 wineries and vineyards. Since there are so many places to see, consider hiring a tour company to drive you around worry-free and stay at a local hotel. Ashby Inn’s proximity, beautiful one-of-a-kind rooms, and an onsite farm-to-table restaurant make it an excellent choice for accommodations.
Breathtaking vistas, top-notch libations, and abundant quality restaurants will make your tour of northern Virginia wine country unforgettable.
