Flying Fox Vineyard: Afton, Virginia

It seems like months ago when Katharine and I went on our little wine tour of Central Virginia. was almost a month ago!  I would be doing a disservice to Virginia wine if I didn't tell y'all about our last stop of the day.  I've passed the tasting room for Flying Fox Vineyard at least six times a year since starting at Sweet Briar and never thought to stop, but I am so glad Katharine and I were lured by the cute logo and stemless wineglasses that were included in the tasting fee!

The best part about the Flying Fox tasting room was the atmosphere.  The tasting took place in a small cottage towards the front of the property, and it just felt like you were stepping into your own living room!  Plus, the woman conducting the tasting was really great about explaining the different wines to Katharine and I and really helping us to understand what we do and do not like!  

The best part?  Well besides the wine, of course...was the french food truck outside!  The tasting room is on the property of Le Bleu Ridge B&B and the owners of the B&B operate Le Chic Picnic outside of the B&B.  The food was fresh and healthy, and just what we needed after a long day of wine tasting!

It's safe to say that I'm already missing Virginia...



  1. What a beautiful vineyard! I would love to visit this place!
