The myth of Southern Virginia sweet wine http://goo.gl/J5B3s6

On the verge of greatness. Jump Mountain Vineyards in the Shenandoah Valley. http://goo.gl/NL0t2N
After visiting over eighty percent of Virginia’s wineries, how is it possible that there are still surprises in store? Apparently so. Jump Mountain Vineyard is open only by appointment, but that is largely a formality. Mary H...

Great Virginia Winery! Bluestone Vineyard in the Shenandoah Valley is making great wine in a drop-dead gorgeous setting. http://goo.gl/FSH8OM

10 must-visit Virginia wineries - in case you missed it the first time. http://thevirginiagrape.blogspot.com/2015/09/10-must-visit-virginia-wineries.html

Exceptional location, experience and wine at Blue Valley Vineyard in Northern Virginia. http://goo.gl/Affj4I
If you are looking for a winery that offers tastings in a grand style, you need to check out Blue Valley Vineyard. The palatial tasting room and winery complex seemed to be years in the making, but the Zissios family is final...

The Shenandoah Valley is producing some of Virginia's finest wine and can potentially become the east coast's top producer. http://goo.gl/PcZvsQ
I have spent the last couple weeks revisiting wineries in the Shenandoah Valley. These trips have reinvigorated my enthusiasm about that region. Wines from the Shenandoah can easily compete with those from any other part of t...

World-class wine and a stunning location at Cave Ridge Vineyards in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. http://goo.gl/EP3YdQ
I have long been saying that the Shenandoah Valley is capable of producing some of Virginia’s best wine. The soil and climatic conditions are ideal. If vineyard sites are selected with an eye toward proper drainage and optima...
