Check out my latest post on Virginia Wine in my Pocket’s blog in which I covered my recent visit to Stone Tower Winery.  I had a lovely time and was lucky enough to check out bud break up close and personal.

As much time as we all spend shopping for wine and enjoying the fruits of a winemaker’s labor, it’s so interesting to get a behind the scenes look at the vine to bottle process- and this is precisely what Stone Tower offers its guests- in a golf cart led tour, no less!

Head on over to Nancy’s site to read more about my time at this trailblazing winery and check out other fantastic posts in her learning issue.

I first met Nancy, an authority on the VA wine scene, at Frank Morgan‘s Annual Sparkling wine tasting. The VA wine world is a small one, and I enjoy running into (and drinking wine with) Nancy at various Virginia wine events.

In addition to her blog, Nancy has created an essential app for all VA wine fans- VA Wine in My Pocket. It’s currently the only app offering a comprehensive and interactive guide to navigating your way through Virginia’s wine country. It includes information on Virginia wineries, wine trails, nearby inns, dining, and GPS mapping (let’s face it, who hasn’t gotten lost on those country roads?!)

  1. Hey Alison – it’s great to have your Stone Tower Winery review on – thanks for stopping by and sharing your golf cart adventuring 😉 Nothing makes you appreciate what’s in your glass more than seeing what went into putting it there, and Stone Tower’s vineyard-to-cellar tour sounds like one of the best around. Thanks again! Nancy & Rick
