Wake up to relaxing breakfast before we head out to our tasting at Early Mountain Vineyards. Early Mountain Vineyards was a finalist Wine Enthusiast’s annual Best American Winery Awards in 2018. Tasting is $10. 


Next, we’ll take a drive to Barboursville Vineyards. Decide on whether you want to participate in Barboursville’s free tasting option, or if you want to experience their older vintages tasting which includes small food pairing for $20. The most popular and famous award-winning wine at Barboursville Vineyards is their Octagon wine. It is comprised of a beautiful blend of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. After the tasting we will explore the vineyards historic grounds filled with picturesque ruins that include Thomas Jefferson-designed manor house.

Our final tasting will be at Horton Vineyards where we will taste “old world” Virginia wines. According to the Washingtonian, “Horton is responsible for introducing many for the grape varieties that now grow in Virginia from the obscure Rkatsiteli to the ubiquitous Viognier.” Their tasting is $6. 

After we finish with our tasting for the day we will head to Michie Tavern for short self-guided tour and southern food that would’ve been served 200 years ago. 



Day 3 - Sunday:

Sleep in a bit after our previous day of indulgence. Verita Vineyards and Winery will be our first tasting of the day. Vertia's guided exploration of their wines encompasses their current releases. From young, crisp white wines to aged, full-bodied reds you will definitely find something you will enjoy. Tastings will include 6-10 wines and are $10 per person.


Next, we will journey to Pippin Hill Farm. Known for their farm to table dining experience and the best views of the Monticello Wine Travel, and of course their award-winning wines. Enjoying sipping their signature Sauvignon Blancs, crisp Blanc de Blancs, barrel fermented Chardonnays, Cabernet Francs and other varietals. Tasting Fee is $10 per person.

Our final tasting will be at Blenheim Vineyards, designed and owned by musician Dave Matthews. With two vineyard sites growing Chardonnay, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon, the goal at Blenheim is to make high quality wines that reflect the climate, soil, and beauty of the surrounding piedmont landscape. Tastings are $5 per person.
