Part I of 4

Thanksgiving is upon us. It’s, thus, only natural that we reflect on the year we’ve experienced, and all the wine…err…things for which we’re truly grateful.

At Virginia Wine Pass, we are thankful for and always inspired by the hardworking people that have and continue to make Virginia Wine Country the thriving, unique, culture it is.

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, we’d like to pay homage to some of our favorite “hidden gems” in Virginia Wine Country. These are generally smaller wineries. They may be off the beaten path or personify the rebelliousness we love about Virginia Wine in some other way.

Prepare yourself for a big year ahead. Get your 2020 Virginia Wine Pass and your friends on board; you’ve got some wine tasting to do.
