Marymount B.L.O.G.S

Then head on out to VA Wine country! 
DC is a great city and it has a lot to offer, but sometimes it is nice to enjoy the openness of the countryside. With all the fall colors coming out take a Sunday afternoon and enjoy some of the great wine that Virginia has to offer! As of today, Virginia has 210 wineries, and a lot of them right in Marymount’s backyard! 
There are two wineries in Fairfax County that are about a half-hour from DC. Both are beautiful and a great place to sit back and relax for an afternoon with friends! 
This winery is the closest to Washington DC, and extremely easy to get to. It is open everyday from 11-7 pm and until 8 pm on Fridays. They offer live music Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. With your tasting you get to try all nine of their wines and take your glass home! In addition to great wines, they have a nice snack menu to choose from at an affordable price. You are welcome to bring your own picnic, but no outside alcohol is allowed. The Winery at Bull Run offers seating inside and outside, and has a completely covered patio. 
If you’re into the civil war, this is the winery for you! There are artifacts from the vineyard and other areas of VA. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly; however, no dogs are allowed due to the horse farm behind the property. I spend most of my weekends here because I am a Wine Pourer! Come visit and enjoy yourself at Winery at Bull Run! 
I visited this winery on a rainy Sunday with some friends. We brought a lunch and were looking forward to a nice rainy afternoon of wine tasting! The winery is located in a secluded place. To get there it took a little bit of navigation through some windy roads, so drive safely! We pulled in to a beautiful property with a big red barn, which is the tasting room! The inside was nice and open with a partly covered balcony and a fireplace. We did a tasting of nine of their wines. All were great! The girl that did our tasting, Marla, was very nice and knowledgeable! We got a bottle and shared it while we enjoyed our picnic inside. Later in the day, a jazz band set up and played live. A very nice afternoon spent!!
