What you'll do

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

From a curated list of wonderful wineries, we will visit two in Virginia's picturesque Wine Country - on the relaxing drive though the verdant and colorful 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 wine lovers 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 pet.

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

There are at least 285 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"!

I booked this experience for my bf and I. I went in to it not expecting too much because i was skeptical of an Airbnb experience. Boy, could i have been more wrong. Kristopher was absolutely amazing. His knowledge and history of wines is impeccable. Kristopher spoke confidently. He made my bf and I feel safe. I enjoyed the intimacy of this experience. I could tell that Kristopher really loves what he does. Kristopher remembered that I told him this trip was to celebrate my bf’s birthday and he brought us cupcakes!!! I’d definitely recommend this experience to any friends that plan on visiting the city!

Excellent.... Kristopher is knowledgeable, personable, and a wonderful host. The #DCWineGuy took us to two exquisite off the trail wineries, and we were blown away. The scenery, landscape, and serenity were a welcome escape from the city hustle and bustle. Presentation and personalization were exceptional; down to the point of a small treat for my fiancé to make her feel welcome during her visit. A scenic drive on the way back took us through some calming scenery, and again Great Conversation and ambience. Even a stop at a local distillery for a quick purchase on the way home. Thank you for the day. Well worth the cost, and thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us.

What a great experience! The wineries were really beautiful even in February. It was nice to escape the city and visit the woods and hillside settings. They had lovely views and a cozy atmosphere. Kristopher is an excellent host who brings incredible knowledge to share, has a mind for hospitality, is very organized, and provided a nice time for us to relax, visit and enjoy the area. It was a fun and memorable day out in the Virginia countryside.
