Winery Hopping


Winery Hopping Guest post by Patricia Jones

Where can you go where everybody knows your name? To a Winery with a bunch of your friends (you totally thought I was going to say something else huh?)! There’s not a better way to celebrate a special occasion than with some wine. We all know that! But why not celebrate a special occasion like a birthday, anniversary, bachorlette party, or even a “It’s Saturday!” party with a Vineyard hop!

Here are 3 quick and easy places for you to visit and enjoy:


  • Breaux Vineyards
    This place – BEAUTIFUL! Loved the scenery. Loved the Music. Nice place to do a tasting and then sit around with good people, eat cheese, drink wine and have a good time. Then when you’re done with that - go pose in front of the Vineyard! My Favorite Wine here: Chère Marie. I give this place 5 out of 5 wine glasses. Go here if you like a little story/history with every taste of wine!

  • Corcoran Vineyards
    Any place that gives me a cupcake before you even sip the wine is HANDS DOWN my favorite place. On top of that the folks here are super friendly, knowledgeable and fun. My Favorite Wine here – the nice and sweet Cello. I give this place 4 out of 5 wine glasses. Go here if you like to have BBQ and a couple beers after your wine (there’s a brewery just a couple steps away from the vineyards).

  • Hiddencroft Vineyards
    Like a view with your wine? Love Virginia’s Countryside? How about a nice patio seat to sit in while you sip your Vidal Blanc. This is the place for you! My Favorite Wine here – Grandma’s Love Potion. I give this place 3 out of 5 wine glasses.

  • Wine Ratings Scale:


    • 1 Glass – Don’t bother!
    • 2 Glasses – Eh. Go at your own risk!
    • 3 Glasses – Worth a visit at least once.
    • 4 Glasses – Great spot – with great perks!
    • 5 Glasses – LOVED! Book your tasting today!

    By day Patricia is a sales consultant for a local paper. By night she is a superhero. Okay. Not really. She actually spends a lot of her time running (or thinking about running -which is basically the same thing), crocheting and writing her own blog Tales From Trish. You can also follow Patricia on twitter at @pjiddy530. All this is done: with a glass of wine in her hand (except while running--that could get a little messy). Her favorite Wine? “Anything sweet!"
