My family is in town so we decided to enjoy the beautiful afternoon while visiting a local vineyard. Paradise Springs Winery in Clifton VA was the choice of the day. The tasting consisted of 3 whites, 1 rose and 2 reds. We ended up taking home the Chardonnay and Meritage, both Governor’s Cup winners & enjoyed the Cabernet Franc with Brie cheese, prosciutto and crackers outdoors. If you life in the Northern Virginia area, I can only recommend stopping by. They also have a great patio which will be awesome during the evening time. The atmosphere is fantastic and very cozy. From the tasting room you can see the barrel storage and tours are available during the weekend.
