A Reason to Celebrate
Whether it’s an official holiday, a pre-planned weekend trip or simply a beautiful day spent indulging in Virginia Wine, time spent in Virginia Wine Country is special no matter the occasion. After all, Virginia Wine is a reason to celebrate in and of itself.
One of the best ways to plan a trip to remember is to use customizable Virginia Wine resources. Visit virginiawine.org and sign up for an account to create itineraries, favorite your ideal stops along the way, and search for offerings and other winery details.
Planning ahead doesn’t have to mean weeks in advance. Download the Virginia Wine app to access the map and saved itineraries to find nearby stops along the way.
If you want to ensure an extra accommodating visit, consider calling ahead to make a reservation. Many wineries offer special reserve tastings, private rooms and outdoor areas and more.
Particularly, if you’re looking for an overnight stay to extend your visit, check out on-site inns and suites designed for every wine lover. When you stay in wine country, you never have to leave. Find an extensive list here.
