Spend the summer in the vineyards, where you can enjoy music and other entertainment afternoon and night, without worrying about traffic, parking or designated drivers. How? Reston Limousine offers two ways: book a seat on a public wine tour to two area wineries each Saturday and Sunday, or customize your own tour with a private vehicle for a small or large group of family and friends.
Our July 11th public wine tour, for instance, will take guests first to Notaviva Vineyards and then to Sunset Hills Vineyard, where the band Small Town plays from 2-5 p.m.
If you’re looking for evening performances, you can reserve a vehicle to transport you and your guests to Tarara Winery’s Sounds of Summer concert series on Saturday evenings through October 2nd. To view the concert lineup, click here.
