James River Cellars
From 17 rolling acres, 10 varieties of wine grapes are harvested at James River Cellars each year. Those grapes are transformed by resident winemakers into red and white varietals, ranging from the jammy chambourcin to the citrus-forward and floral gewürztraminer. Visitors can cozy up in the homey tasting room, where they can sip samples of wine at one of the communal table. During warmer months, they can head out to the sun-dappled patio to enjoy the breeze with their drink or, if you're under 21, to hang out and smell the vines.
