Winding Road Cellars

We will start our Saturday afternoon at the Winding Road Cellars nestled in the beautiful rolling countryside of Markham, Virginia offering award-winning hand crafted Virginia wines.

The varietals planted at the vineyard include Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Vidal Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Chambourcin.

The wine tasting includes a small plate of crackers and cheese, besides a variety of Amish cheeses, crackers, and oil and bread are available for purchase as small accompaniments with your wine.

We will explore their different wines and enjoy a glass or two in the beautiful surrounding.

Interesting Note: The winery owned by Linda and Scott Culver named their place not only after the winding road one takes to get there, but also for the path that life led them down, ending at Winding Road Cellars.

Chateau O'Brien At North Point

Chateau OBrien at Northpoint Winery and Vineyard began producing wine in 2005, and the wines embody the unique and enduring characteristics of the soil and climate of the mountainside terroir.
