Visitors to Northern Virginia see entertaining and historic destinations in every direction, from George Washington’s Mount Vernon and the National Air and Space Museum near Dulles to Wolftrap National Park for the Performing Arts and Arlington National Cemetery. Civil War history is in every direction, too, with Harper’s Ferry National Historical Park, Manassas National Battlefield Park and the Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park the most notable. Virginia’s oldest juried crafts fair is an annual event in the historic landmark village of Waterford. The Skyline Drive and Appalachian Trail are both nearby. And across the Northern Virginia area, you’ll discover a large number of wineries thanks to relative elevations that offer perfect sites for grape vines. The rolling landscape, with its rich soils from eons of granite and sandstone erosion, gives good air and drainage for wine grapes. Add the moderate winters and a generous growing season and the result is very productive ground for winemaking grapes. Northern Virginia wineries produce fine examples of every wine Virginia offers, including Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, Chardonnay, Mandolin, Merlot, Norton, Petit Verdot, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Seyval, Vidal Blanc, Traminette and Zinfandel as well as many fruit wines.
