Four businesses in Middleburg and one in Upperville recently were spotlighted in CNN Money magazine as a “great place to start” with Virginia's secret wine tasting destinations.
Boxwood Estate, a 21-acre vineyard, was dubbed “the great dame” of Middleburg vineyards by the magazine.
“This winery was designed by Jacobsen Architecture, a D.C.-based firm also known for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis's home in Martha's Vineyard. Boxwood is one of the most elegant vineyards in the region, so don't miss the chance to explore. The circular cave, where wines age in a ring of French oak barrels, is especially striking,” the article reads.
Six miles away, Chrysalis Vineyards is touted as a destination to get the best wine for your buck.
“The owners of the sprawling 412-acre property invite visitors to stick around after their tasting to drink in views of the Bull Run Mountains and use the Chrysalis outdoor grills. If you like, wash down your BYO burgers or shish kebabs with one of the winery's best value bottles, like the 2011 Mariposa rosé, $15,” the article reads.
The Middleburg Country Inn, the Briar Batch B&B and Hunter's Head Tavern in Upperville were also given accolades in the article.
