Description
This wine trail leads you down crooked mountain roads to a group of six unique Southwest VA wineries. AmRhein Wineries is located off Route 221 near Roanoke VA and offers a wide variety of wines, along with tasting room, and fun events throughout the year. Attimo Wineries is a new winery that opened near Christiansburg, VA. They are planning a grand opening of their tasting room in August of this year. Blacksnake Mead is located on a truly back country road that leads to a quaint log cabin where the Villars taste their wares including traditional meads and mead brews. Beautiful Chateau Morrisette is located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile market 171. Once you turn onto Winery Rd., you'll see their parking lot on the right and admire the wonderful mountain views. This is one of the largest wineries in VA and they offer everything from wines, merchandise and souvenirs, food, and many other amenities. They have a full blown award winning restaurant on sight (call for reservations) and have lots of events and festivals throughout the year. Foggy Ridge Cider is located in Dugspur VA about one mile from the meadery. Their unique blend of hand crafted ciders area a real treat and should not be missed. VA is well known for it's apple growing and these ciders use some of the best heritage apples to create unique flavors in each cider. Finally Villa Appalaccia is like turning down a winding road into a Tuscan Villa. Great Italian inspired wines are offered in their tasting room along with complimentary cheeses. Their Olive oil festival is not to be missed and sometimes you can get a wood fired pizza while you play a round of bocce ball.
