This past weekend, I checked out a relatively new winery in beautiful Virginia countryside, just an hour's drive outside of DC, called Bluemont Vineyard....and may I just say that the view was definitely worth the gorgeous drive.
It is at an elevation of 951 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains with a 50 mile view . On a clear day, you can even see the top of the Washington Monument!
Each of their wines are named after farm animals, which I thought was cute, and because they have a working farm at the foot of the mountain. Their wines were quite tasty.
If you find yourself wandering in Northern Virginia's wine country, it would be a shame not to add Bluemont Vineyard to your trip. I'm going back to try their dessert wines when they start bottling in June...especially their blackberry wine. Mmm yummy!!
