I'm driving down from DC to Miami to visit a friend and I realized I can leave a little earlier (4-5 days?...) and take my sweet time and enjoy some wines along the way. And so I'm begging for any winery suggestions ya'll may have.
I'm not particularly interested in scenery, although that's nice, but mostly in the quality of the wine. In Northern Virginia, I'm thinking of starting by visiting Linden Vineyards off I-66 and going south from there. Some others in Virginia that have been recommended include Rappahannock Cellars, Horton Vineyard, and White Hall Vineyards.
Not fond of some of the wines I've seen at some local festivals such as fruit, lavender-infused, and cough-syrup-esque wines, but I'm game tasting just about anything else.
I'll be leaving middle of October, if that makes a difference. If you know of any good wineries in North Carolina, Georgia, or South Carolina, please drop a note as well.
Thanks for your help.
