A stay in Fairfax County puts you in prime position for a true Virginia wine vacation. Virginia wine is emerging as one of the Top Wine Regions in the United States, and even the world. Famous Virginian Thomas Jefferson, who tried painstakingly to produce wine for 36 years knew it could be done, and said "We could, in the United States, make as great a variety of wines as are made in Europe, not exactly the same kinds, but doubtless as good." And as he predicted, Virginia has obliged the former President. Thanks to its rolling landscape, rich soils, good air and proper drainage for grapes, Virginia has been able to produce some of the most delicious wines ever.
A wine destination like no other, the entire Commonwealth features more than 230 wineries and numerous wine trails that are surrounded by some of the most breathtaking scenery you'll see on the east coast. In Northern Virginia, you'll find dozens of wineries and vineyards within your reach. The best part? If you want to visit both Virginia Wine Country and the nation's capital of Washington, DC on one trip, you absolutely can.
From starting out at the Gateway to Wine Country in Fairfax County, home to Paradise Springs Winery and The Winery at Bull Run, to soaring views of the Blue Ridge Mountains at Hillsborough Vineyards, or hopping on a wine tour with Reston Limousine, you're in for a vacation that memories are made of.
