I recently paid a visit to Bluemont Vineyard, located in Bluemont, VA, to enjoy a glass of Virginia wine and get an eye-full of Mother Nature’s fall colorations. Bluemont's attractive tasting room is nestled on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains (951 feet above sea level) and on a clear day you can see the top of the Washington Monument. Bluemont Vineyard is a small, low production farm winery that produces a wide variety of accessible wines - ranging from Viognier, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, etc., to several fruit wines made from locally grown fruit sourced from neighboring Great Country Farms. The tasting fee is $5 and wine can be purchased by bottle and glass. Bottle prices range from $17 to $22 and glass prices range from $7 to $8.
The tasting room offers light to medium fare and also boasts a home décor and gift shop. During my visit, I took in the spectacular views from the expansive wrap-around deck and enjoyed a fuller bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that paired nicely with the cool and crisp fall day. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere relaxed and welcoming. Are you looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city? Take a respite to Bluemont Vineyard and spend the day enjoying Virginia wine and the beautiful countryside.
