Each Wednesday we will highlight a favorite Virginia Winery and pair with it a favorite place to sit and sip!
This week, we’ll start close to home: Upper Shirley Vineyards.
Upper Shirley Vineyards is located in Charles City Virginia, it sits adjacent to Shirley Plantation which is the country’s oldest working farm!
We recommend you go straight to the source to enjoy Upper Shirley Vineyard's delicious wines.Walk the grounds, stay for lunch, and even ride their horses!
Not only do they produce delicious wine, they are passionate about sustainable working lands, too. The owners say, "We tend our vines by hand, using age-old methods. It’s demanding work but worth the effort."
Views from the Vineyard are just as impressive as the wine.The James River and Presquile National Wildlife Refuge lend themselves as a beautiful backdrop to the vineyards already breathtaking grounds.
