As we get older our hang out spots tend to look a little different. We went from college bars on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights to Wineries on Saturday and Brunch on Sunday (with a stop at a winery afterwards). Today I’m going to tell you about my favorite Virginia Wineries. This was a difficult list to come up with as there are many wineries throughout our beautiful state. The Virginia Wineries listed will be focused in Northern Virginia and are a short drive from Washington D.C.
Barrel Oak Winery
This winery is by far my favorite because it’s dog friendly and the grounds are absolutely breath taking. Live music takes place there (check out their website for events) and dogs are allowed both inside and outside. Making it perfect for all weather trips!
Barrel Oak Winery has a variety of different tastings and the prices vary but they start at $7.95.
Stone Tower Winery
I actually picked this winery to go to for my birthday last year! It offers gorgeous scenery (so gorgeous there was actually a private wedding happening when we were there) with winding roads along the way, delicious wine and food, and it was dog friendly both inside and outside!
Stone Tower Winery tastings are $15.
Paradise Springs Winery
This winery is one of my favorites because it’s where all of my friends and I love to gather. Something about the atmosphere makes it a great casual place to catch up with friends as well as a fun place to celebrate a birthday! Surprise this is also a dog friendly winery but only outside, so don’t bring Fido if it’s raining!
Paradise Springs tastings are $15.
The Winery at Bull Run
Last but not least is The Winery at Bull Run. The wine is great, the views are classic, and there is plenty of space indoors and out for large parties! I went here for one of my close friends’ surprise birthday and we were all able to sit together outside and enjoy each others’ company.
Bull Run tastings are $15.
