Though Stony Knoll Vineyards' first harvest didn't take place until 2002, the winery's 48 acres of cropland have been part of the Coe family since 1896, making it a North Carolina Century Farm. For most of that time, the land yielded tobacco, but now, under winemaker Lynn Crouse, its two vineyards grow grapes for 12 wines. That selection ranges from two cabernet francs to the signature SKV Plantation White, a dessert wine fashioned from handpicked chardonnay grapes.
Samples abound inside Stony Knoll's tasting room, which is nestled high in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, overlooking the scenic vines below. Elsewhere on the picturesque estate, Stony Knoll hosts weddings and overnight guests in its Wine Lodge. The lodge, which was built in 1860, was originally a rural homestead, but it now offers modern amenities for its guests, including a two-person jacuzzi and flat-screen TVs.
Initially planting vines for neighboring wineries, Virginia Mountain Vineyards' staff slowly began to dabble in the art and science of winemaking. Then, in 2006, they began crafting their own varietals on-site. Today, staffers tend to more than 5,000 vines across nearly 10 acres of picturesque land, plucking ripe grapes to transform into red, white, sweet, and specialty wines. Events are regularly held at the vineyards, including a summer concert series, special tastings, and trying wines straight from their barrels.
Found right on the cusp of the scenic Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge Vineyard opens up its family farm during the warm weather months for musical and social gatherings. Melody mavens can park on the plush lawn or in the cozy barn, where they'll swim in the eighth notes of a lineup of lively acoustic bands, with styles ranging from the blues, country, and classic-rock tunes of Exit 162 (April 2, September 4, and October 15) to the rousing fiddles of the Blinky Moon Boys (May 21 and October 22).
Part southern restaurant, part Italian restaurant, part sandwich shop. When all those parts are put together, Vic?s Family Restaurant is 100% family dining. Vic?s son, Steve, now runs the place, which still has the original terrazzo tile floors and rustic wood booths from the 1930s. The eatery?s popular broasted chicken pairs with macaroni and cheese bites and slaw. Also, New York?style pizzas and pastas share the menu with meatball subs and reubens.

Bull & Bones Brewhaus & Grill, one part brewery, one part sports bar, and one part upscale dining room, serves handcrafted microbrews and a menu of burgers, steaks, and sandwiches. Saddle up in front of 1 of 20 HDTVs with a Pub burger, which hugs wood-fire-grilled Angus beef with a kaiser roll (an $8.99 value), or a Black and Blue burger, a chargrilled patty topped with crumbled blue cheese (a $9.29 value). While holding a bunned beauty, diners can consider pours from Bull and Bones own line of brews (not covered by this Groupon), including the Maroon Effect brown ale, a finalist at the 2010 Microfestivus event. Bull & Bones toes the line between classic sports bar and brewpub, complementing the bevy of HDTVs and seven Diamond pool tables with exposed air ducts, boldly colored walls, a bounty of indoor and outdoor seating, and a 10-barrel microbrewery that's only visible while wearing 3-D glasses.
