Rockbridge Vineyard is proud to be a member of the Shenandoah Valley Winegrowers Trail.
Oh Shenandoah! Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley Wine Country welcomes visitors with exciting things to see and do: wine tours and tasting, hiking, Civil War battlefields, caverns, antiques, antebellum plantations with unique inns, B&Bs, camping, and restaurants. This historic valley is tucked between the Blue Ridge Mountains on the east and the Allegheny Mountains to the west, from the West Virginia line in the north to the James River in the south.
About an hour's drive west of Washington, D.C. lies the Shenandoah Valley and some of Virginia’s best wineries. To complement the wine, superior dining can be found along the Shenandoah Valley Wine Country Trail. A romantic outing in any season, the wine region is a wonderful place to hike, picnic, and take life at a leisurely pace. On your trip, plan a diversion to an historic plantation or Civil War battlefield.
It has been said by many that the Shenandoah Valley is one of the country's most exciting wine producing regions today, with positive critical reviews being found in major food and wine publications nationwide. As the praise and awards continue to accumulate, Shenandoah Valley (AVA) wines have become sought-after products in fine restaurants and wine shops from coast to coast and internationally.
The Shenandoah Valley has clearly emerged as a regional wine leader in the eastern United States. A tour of the Valley’s wineries offers a special experience, with rural scenery, entertainment, quality restaurants and award winning wines.
The Shenandoah Valley Wine Growers Association is a nonprofit regional trade association with an active membership of Shenandoah Valley (BATF Approved Viticultural Area - AVA) wineries, businesses and folks interested in wine. The Association's vision is to lead in the promotion and protection of Shenandoah Valley AVA as one of the finest winegrowing regions in the world; to enhance the future of Shenandoah Valley through the preservation and enhancement of its resources: its land, wines and people; create a unified voice to advocate the common interests of our members; and to meet the challenges of our dynamic, global industry with innovation and integrity.
