Shenandoah County is home to 8 vineyards, 2 craft breweries and 1 cidery nestled among the beautiful scenery of the Shenandoah Valley.
Start your day off at Woodbine Farms, located just west of Strasburg on Route 55. They offer fresh baked bread and local fruit and cheeses to serve as the perfect accompaniment as you sip wine at your next stop, North Mountain Vineyards. This pet friendly vineyard offers an array of elegant wines in a charming setting and offers a variety of events throughout the year including live music series. Proceed south along Rt. 11 to Woodstock for lunch and a little shopping at the Woodstock Café and Shoppes. Be sure to take a stroll along Woodstock’s Main Street to All Things Virginia at the Farmhouse for a great selection of Virginia wines, snacks and locally made crafts before continuing to Shenandoah Vineyards, the oldest vineyard in the Shenandoah Valley. Head back to Woodstock for dinner and a pint at the Woodstock Brewhouse. Located in a renovated historic building that was once home to the Casey Jones Denim Factory, the Brewhouse offers 1752 BBQ on Fridays and Saturdays and pizzas, gyros and other light fare through the rest of the week. 1752 BBQ is smoked on site with a variety of offers ranging from traditional pulled pork and brisket to “The Gobbler”, a piled high smoked turkey breast sandwich with bacon, cheese and slaw. Visitors can enjoy live music on Thursday evenings as well.
Enjoy breakfast and locally roasted coffee at Jackson’s Corner Cafe in New Market then start your day relaxing on the patio and soaking in the mountain views at Third Hill Winery at DeMello Vineyards. Enjoy a stop at Shenandoah Caverns Family of Attractions before continuing on to Swover Creek Farm Brewery for lunch. The wood-fired pizzas are a favorite and the farm crafted sausages in freshly made pretzel roles won’t disappoint. Continue on to Wolf Gap Vineyard, located on a ridgeline which affords spectacular mountain views. To round out your tour a visit to Cave Ridge Vineyard, nestled in the foothills overlooking the Shenandoah Valley and end at The Winery at Kindred Pointe where you can also enjoy their walking trails on the premises.

Relax in your hotel and then enjoy dinner at Sals Italian Restaurant in Edinburg, a local favorite for authentic Italian cuisine.
Start your day off with some scratch made breakfast from Sunrise Café including their homemade sourdough bread before enjoying a scenic drive down Route 42 to Bryce Resort. In the winter, visitors can ski, board and tube down the slopes or enjoy a round of golf while enjoying views of the surrounding mountains. Warmer temperatures in the spring, summer and fall are perfect for the Bryce Resort Mountain Bike Park, coasting down the zip line or grass tubing. Enjoy lunch of burgers, sandwiches, salads and other fare at their restaurant or a selection of heartier fare for dinner.
