Rockbridge Vineyard, Raphine, Va

Rockbridge Vineyard sits on a hill at 2,000 ft in elevation in Raphine, Va.  The wine maker has worked in wineries in Germany, California, and Virginia, before buying the land to have his own vineyard. The tasting room is actually inside the barn!

After the wine tasting, we enjoyed a glass of wine before heading out to our next adventure!
