As we near the end of Virginia Wine Month, we remember why Wine Enthusiast magazine named us one of the 10 best wine travel destinations in the world. Each turn of our scenic roads brings a new adventure, perfect for your October wine trip. In one afternoon, you can go from rolling vineyards, to picturesque horse farms, to cozy country inns. A mouthwatering barbecue stand to a five-star restaurant serving Virginia’s finest wines. A stunning Viognier to a world-class Cabernet Franc. This is Virginia. It’s how we roll.

The more time you take, the more you’ll discover – every region, every vintage, every winery in Virginia is unique. The one constant is a warm welcome.

Virginia wines are now recognized among the world’s best, and there are over 250 local wineries ready to show you why. Although the exciting events and special promotions of October Wine Month are coming to a close, we encourage you to continue your exploration of Virginia’s stunning vineyards and award-winnings wines. Be sure to visit for a complete list of wine-related activities.
