What you'll do
This Metro-accessible intimate winery experience is tailored to fit you! From a curated list of 6 wineries, we will visit two in Virginia's picturesque Wine Country - on the relaxing drive though the autumn folliage, 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 us on the trip! 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 some flexibility with start and end time
There are at least 275 wineries in Virginia - I've visited over 165 over the past decade! 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"!
