Just before Christmas, Lydia and Tim got engaged! And I couldn't be more excited for two such wonderful people. After a few weeks of thumbing through wedding magazines and websites, it was time to look for venues.
They decided to start with some of the vineyards in Virginia wine country. Like the good sister-in-law that I am, I graciously offered to join in any potential wine tastings. Just to be helpful, of course.
They didn't have to look long, though. The Barns at Hamilton Station Vineyards is a beautiful, hundred-year-old stone and wood dairy barn that has been restored into a unique tasting room and event space. The vineyard sits on ten charming acres in the quaint, historic town of Hamilton, Virginia.
It's natural, rustic, and will make such a pretty backdrop for the wedding. Plus, there's wine! My two favorites are the Viognier, with bright notes of peach and apricot, and the Petit Verdot, deep in color and body with hints of spices and vanilla. Their Chardonnay is very crisp and lovely as well.
The barn has a warm and friendly atmosphere; great for sitting back and enjoying a glass of wine with family and friends. It's a wonderful place to add to your wine tour of Loudoun County.
