My husband and I will be taking a drive from DC to the Charlottesville area next weekend. My husband's never toured a vineyard, so I'd like to take some time to stop at a couple either on the way, or once we get to the Charlottesville area early Friday afternoon.
I myself have not tried many Virginia wines, and those I have tried (I have to admit) did not impress me much at all. Most of them were Chardonnays.
Are there any vineyards either on the way to Charlottesville or in the area itself that we should try for either a tour or simply a tasting? Any particular types of wine that we should be looking for?
Thanks in advance!
