Last Minute Ideas for the 4th of July!

Effingham Manor in Virginia

Hope everyone is enjoying a fun and safe 4th of July!

If you do not have plans to celebrate yet, why not stop by your favorite neighborhood winery tasting room? You may want to call ahead of time to be sure the winery is open today.

I received an email this week about three delightful wineries in Virginia. Pearmund Cellars, Vint Hill Craft Winery and Effingham Manor are all open today. Keep in mind that Effingham Manor, where there is an emphasis on antiques/history, is open for adults only.

Vint Hill Craft Winery

Vint Hill Craft Winery’s courtyard will be open. Visit and enjoy the music. The winery will also have Wine Cocktails available. Corn hole will be available. Enjoy the day with the family as children are welcome. 

If you are curious about wine cocktails, the Vint Hill Craft Winery, located in Vint Hill offers “The Crisis”  made with Petite Manseng. This cocktail is a reminder of the Cuban Military Crisis in 1962.  The Pin Up cocktail is made with Chardonnay. Pappy’s Punch  has an informative note,“Gregory ‘Pappy”’Boyington was a WWII flying ace and Commander of the The Black Sheep Squadron in the South Pacific.”

Pearmund Cellars celebrates its 15th year!

Visit Pearmund Cellars in Broad Run, Virginia which is celebrating its 15th year. The celebration includes shrimp, hots dogs, and ribeye steaks from the grill. Don Bruce will provide live music. Lawn games will also be available. During the week families are welcome at the tasting room. A cute note reads, “Pearmund Cellars welcomes families during the week, reminding kids to always supervise their parents!”

Effingham Manor in Nokesville, Virginia is one of the newest wineries in Virginia. At this adult only winery, visitors can enjoy history and a tranquil atmosphere while tasting wine.
