If you’re looking for an introduction to DC’s Wine Country, one of the best bets is Sunset Hills Vineyard, which combines Old World traditions with modern amenities such as WiFi and two large TV monitors housed in a beautifully restored historic barn.
You can explore this Purcellville winery on one of Reston Limousine’s weekend wine tours (next one is Sept. 5) or have us customize your own private tour that could include wine educators for special tasting presentations, winemaker talks, and tours of the vineyard, stone spring house, and winemaking processing lower level.
During your visit, you’ll be able to taste and purchase some of their award-winning wines, such as the 2009 Viognier, which won a gold medal at the 2010 International Eastern Wine Competition and double gold at the 2010 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.
