Some Favorite Wineries

We have a few mountain wineries about an hour drive from The Claiborne House B&B. Guests this morning told me they thoroughly enjoyed Sans Soucy Vineyards and Villa Appalachia, vs the more commercial wineries. I would be remiss if I did not let you all know their recommendation!
VILLA APPALACHIA
LOCATION. 752 Rock Castle Gorge, Floyd VA 24091. PLEASE do not enter this address into navigation devices. For GPS, when you are near Floyd, enter "WINERIES" or gps location N 36.79848, W 80.37401. GOOGLE MAPS also has us listed almost correctly (we are 100 yds further along the gravel road). Alternatively, go to our Direction pages. PLEASE realize there are no signs permitted on the Parkway and the road number signs are small.

HOURS & TASTINGS. We are open holiday Mondays 10:00 to 4:30 PM, Friday 11:00 until 5:00 PM. Saturday from 11:00 until 6:00 PM. Sunday from 12:00 until 4:30 PM. Wine tastings are $5 per person and include at least 7 different wines as well as several desert and/or bubbly wines. Phone: (540) 358-0357
SANS SOUCY VINEYARD
Tasting Room Hours
11a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday
1571 Mount Calvary Road Brookneal, Virginia 24528
Phone: (434) 376-9463

*This information is directly from their websites. We are not responsible for closing or hours of operation, please CALL before you visit to ensure they are open. 

These wineries are in opposite directions, so if you want to visit the Blue Ridge Parkway to our West visit Villa Appalachia.  If you wish to go East and stop off at Patrick Henry's House "Red Hill" and a visit Sans Souci Vineyard in Brookneal. 

Stay with us here at The Claiborne House B&B and be central to both (and more!) Thank you Mark and Charlene for your input!

ISN'T IT TIME FOR A BLUE RIDGE DAY Y'ALL?
