Every site on the Chesapeake Bay Wine trail has something great about it but his location is so much fun. If you're in the area and don't have a lot of time to spare, this is a great place to do a quick tasting and enjoy a relaxed moment among the vines. The tasting room is screened in, but the real treat is walking amongst the vineyards to visit with the rescue dogs that make the winery home.
This is also a location that boasts a location for The Oyster Trail and proudly hosts oyster roasts regularly on location. I'd recommend it as a location for a girls weekend or even a place to grab a drink before heading to dinner.
You can find some exciting options in both red and white and while you're trying the beautifully berried reds or very fresh and crisp whites you can make your mark (literally) on some oyster shells that decorate the tables. They also have lodging at the Hope and Glory Inn bed and breakfast. I'd recommend staying there, but if it's full check out the Tides Inn and enjoy their complimentary beach cruisers to take downtown and take in the sights from a different perspective. Slow down, reconnect, and enjoy the amazing Virginia wine, food and hospitality that is all around you in the Northern Neck. I can't wait to go back.
