Over the summer, we had the opportunity to tour Stanburn Winery in Patrick County Virginia. The winery is in a scenic location in the city of Stuart, near my grandmother!
This is a family owned and operated winery that has been part of the Patrick County community for 20 years! We actually toured the winery, and sampled the wine with members of their family. It was such a great experience.
The day we arrived, they were preparing for one of their monthly wine festivals. They hold a festival every month from May to August each year. They invite the entire community to take part in these festivals. They're family friendly and, something that is so important to me and my family.... they're LBGTQ+ friendly.
We sampled all of their wine and bought several bottles. Our favorite was Poorhouse! We sampled that one with chocolate. This wine was named after Poorhouse Creek that runs through the county. I wish we had brought home several more bottles of that one!
Overall, our experience was incredibly positive. The location is beautiful, and the atmosphere is welcoming. I can't wait to visit again!
