California, Italy and France are all places you would expect to make a list of wine regions worth exploring. But we are especially thrilled that a recent article in Forbes Magazine puts the state of Virginia as one of their Six Exciting Wine Regions To Explore In 2014. Of course, Virginia residents are aware of just how promising and accomplished its winery scene is becoming, but to be recognized among worldwide wine destinations is quite a mark of achievement.
The wineries and wines produced at Smith Mountain Lake are among some of the best Virginia wine locations. When you visit, be sure to include a day of touring our charming lake vineyards, the home grown fruit wine businesses and the family-owned and operated establishments producing award-winning reds and whites each year. The wineries at Smith Mountain Lake are some of the most beautiful, eventful and friendly you could experience. So much so, that we expect to see our local wineries making lists like the one in Forbes very soon.
