Wineries of Blue Ridge & Southern Virginia Mountains

Virginia sits halfway between Europe and California, just below the Mason-Dixon Line. The wines from this region embody this unique position in the world. They are lush but structured; aromatic, expressive and beautifully balanced—blending the subtlety of the Old World with the boldness of the new. Like perfect French spoken with a slight southern drawl. There's a movement growing in Virginia vineyards with no singular style, no "signature grape" - rather, Virginian wine embodies the essence of a region where tradition and revolution go hand in hand. I wanted to explore more of what Southern Virginia has to offer, so we researched listings and picked a few wineries to visit. Read my recap below:
