Visitors can bring a blanket and relax on the east lawn as they sample wines from 20 Virginia wineries. 

During tours of the Mansion, interpreters will discuss Washington’s attempts at creating a vineyard and highlight various wine-related items inside the Mansion, including the basement’s brick vaults where Washington stored his wine.
