Wineries and Breweries


WINERIES and BREWERIES of Southwest Virginia


We have visited most of the wineries in Virginia and have experience at growing grapes here at The Rendezvous Vineyard on the property at Rockwood Manor. We also enjoy Craft Made Bears and searching out the best local Brews. Have found some amazing ones. Check out the locals in our food page with restaurants. We have also been producing our own wines here and with friends and many have become quite good. Dreams of becoming a Virginia Farm Winery may soon come true. Would love to be able to share our wines with you.
