CRAFT BEER, WINE, CIDER, DISTILLED SPIRITS
Enjoy a weekend away as you sip fabulous wine, beer and spirits along the Shenandoah Spirits Trail which now features more than 45 vineyards, craft breweries, distilleries and cideries throughout the Northern Shenandoah Valley stretching from Winchester to Harrisonburg.
Shenandoah County is home to award-winning wineries offering the best of Virginia wine. The deep, rocky soil and low rainfall make Shenandoah County an ideal destination for growing grapes. It’s no wonder the Shenandoah Valley is home to so many vineyards, with Shenandoah County having the highest concentration in the Valley.
Shenandoah County is also home to five craft breweries each with its own unique atmosphere and beers. Visitors can take in the scenery at farm breweries using their own locally sourced ingredients or enjoy a pint at breweries located in renovated historic structures.
Beer and wine not your thing? No problem! We also have one cidery and a distillery.
Cave Ridge is a family owned and operated vineyard and winery located in the foothills overlooking the Shenandoah Valley, world renowned for its scenic beauty and history.

French oak barrel aging is the key to making fine wine – it adds depth, complexity and elegance…so why not try it with whiskey? We call our unique process “Dual Cask”. Our gifted master blender selects the best barrels of aged American whiskies he can find, and assembles a bi-partisan blend of young and old – young for the spicy edginess, and old for the mellow smoothness. We let them get to know each other in French oak wine barrels for a few months, and when they come out, we have what we believe is one of the best whiskies on the market. Filibuster! – A whisky so good, you won’t stop talking about it!

Winner of the 2015 Governor’s Cup for their 2009 Clio Blend. The inspiration for Muse Vineyards comes from the small domain wineries of France and Italy, where their small vineyards have often been passed down for centuries through the same families. The wines are made exclusively from grapes grown on the estates and the fermenting, pressing, barrel-aging and bottling of the wine are also done only at the domain. The result is a wine from an identifiable place. Muse Vineyard’s wines are by deliberate intent the authentic expression of a place- the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Open Friday-Saturday 12pm-8pm, Sunday 12pm – 6pm.
