We had a a great Wine About Virginia day with Nancy (Virginia Wine in Your Pocket blogger) and Jen and Bryan (Nancy's #1 fans) yesterday at the Grand Opening of Capitol Vineyards. (So how do we get a #1 fan?) Capitol Vineyards were offering a standard tasting as well as a wine and food pairing for opening day. We decided upon just the standard tasting as we had brought a lunch for later in the day. Lauren, one of the owners had told me Capitol Vineyards will offer the pairing for the first month and special occasions after that. They are planning to have a more traditional 'Opening' celebration in late May.
Capitol Vineyards is located at 3600 Sage Road, Delaplane, VA 20144. They are located fairly close to Aspen Dale Winery. Tasting room hours are Sat - Sun: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.
