Summer and vineyards go together like campfires and s’mores. Virginia – fifth in the country for wine production – holds many an idyllic location for sitting back and savoring a new vintage and exploring new territory. And the Stonewall Jackson Inn’s central location here amidst the Shenandoah Valley Wine Trail is the perfect place to rendezvous with friends and try something new! With that in mind, here are some of the summer wine festivals to put on your calendar, and if you can’t make it to one of these Valley events, check out our Wine Package to get your fill of the local wine scene. It makes for a truly unique and relaxing weekend.
