While visiting the Inn you’ll want to take some time to travel to Afton Mountain Vineyards and the wonderful wines that they have to offer. The Smith’sÂ purchased the vineyard in 2009 and have taken great care to turn it into the great place it has become.
Â Afton Mountain Vineyard and Views
One of the mottos at the vineyard is that “grapes don’t grow in ugly places” and boy were they right. The views are greatÂ while travelingÂ there andÂ enjoying your glass or bottle of wine.Â LocatedÂ in close proximity to bothÂ HumpbackÂ Gap and Rockfish Gap the area is full of beautiful scenery and wildlife. Not only having the mountains as part of your view but also the many acres of vines to take in as well should help you to relax a bit.
The vineyard does have a bit of history as one of the first farm wineries in the state the original vines were planted in 1978. Since the current owners purchased the property the growing acres have doubled in size. The tasting room has been in operation since 1991. They offer several varieties ofÂ award winningÂ white and red for tastings and purchase by the glass orÂ bottle. If you really like what you try you can even become a member of the Afton Mountain Vineyards Wine Club.
Since it’s open year round there are many things to do at the vineyard. Bring some lunch or grab some crackers, cheese and cured meats and take in a picnic at the pavilion. Through out the summer and fall months there is live music at least once a month that the whole family is invited to enjoy. They even welcome your furry friends in the outdoorÂ grassy areasÂ as long as they are leashed.
