What you'll do

This Metro-accessible intimate winery experience is tailored to fit you!

From a curated list of wineries, we will visit two in Virginia's picturesque Wine Country - on the relaxing drive though the verdant Virginia countryside, we'll get to know each other a bit and you'll learn some of the history and backstories of Virginia wine - at each winery, you'll taste several award-winning red, white, and rose wines - following each tasting, we will sit, relax, and enjoy a selection of seasonal wine-friendly snacks often in a beautiful outdoor setting. Plan to stay at each winery for about 1-1.5hrs, with an approx 4-5hr total trip time (including travel time).

The day trip is perfect for solo travellers, couples, and small groups - it's meant to be a intimate day with a personal tasting in the beautiful Virginia Piedmont. The Experience can be up to 4 Guest, so there is a chance if you are a solo traveller or a couple, additional people may join!

I'm happy to send you my information PDF so you'll have an idea of the curated wineries, and you can do research on your own to make your Experience the best it can be.

While I'm a pet-lover, many wineries do not allow dogs in their tasting rooms - I cannot accommodate anyone who wants to bring their dog.

Let me know If you have dietary restrictions!

There is limited flexibility with start and end times due to pandemic restrictions.

*Bookings are now available for Winery Experiences with some modifications to the "traditional" experience due to winery implementation of phased re-opening VA executive orders*

There are at least 275 wineries in Virginia - I've visited over 200 over the past decade plus! I'm friends with many of the winemakers and winery owners. I'm a member at 6 Virginia wineries - so I put my money to support an industry I love.

My Instagram is "DC_WINEGUY". I'm passionate about wine and plan to own a winery one day!

And as for hosting large and small events, I use to run the 20s & 30s Wine Lovers, the most active wine group on the East Coast with over 2500 members.

But I prefer intimate experiences such as small group outings to wineries.

Do you want to experience Virginia Wine? Let me be your "wine guy"!

It was a terrific experience from planning to execution. Taught us a lot without ever coming off as condescending. Fun, happy, and well prepared. Definitely recommend!

This trip was just as great as the reviews painted it to be! Although there was the chance of another two joining the experience, we lucked up on a private trip! Kristopher was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and made us ladies feel comfortable. The nature of the trip requires long drives, but Kristopher’s easy-going conversations about Virginia wineries made the time pass by with ease. By far, the best part of the experience was being able to reap the benefits of Kristopher’s membership at the winery, where we were able to be served in a more relaxed environment in an otherwise busy winery. This trip is the perfect way to get to know Virginia wineries!

Kris is extremely knowledgeable about Virginia wine and wine as a whole as it relates to the DC area. We appreciate Kris taking us to two wineries to which we have never been and teaching us more about Virginia wine. This is an experience I would recommend to tourists and locals. Wines were good and. Experience was highly enjoyable.

Perfect experience for those, who love wine and wineries but don't want to drive! Kristopher is awesome host. I'm a solo female traveller and I was sharing expirience with another lady. (Feels absolutely safe) The company was perfect, I learned a lot about wine but also about Virginia wine country and about DC. We visited 2 beautiful wineries and a distillery. Wine and snacks were delicious. It was the best birthday gift for myself) Thank you, Kris!

We had an incredible experience from start to finish. Kristopher went above and beyond to make the day special for my fiancé who’s birthday we were celebrating. We had a wonderful experience.

My husband and I had an absolutely fantastic day with Kristopher (and our co-guest Blakeley)! 👍😃 He was super friendly, SUPER knowledgeable and passionate, super accommodating, and the wineries were beautiful and the wines delicious (as well as the food provided by Kris). We learned so much about wines and much, much more beyond that. I really hope to stay in touch with him also in the future and to do more wine and Virginia experiences together. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING, Kris!❤️
