October is the busiest month for Virginia wineries – harvest continues, winemakers hustle to get their fruit in before it gets too cold, and visitors flock to see the beautiful picturesque leaves turning bright reds and oranges. The Blue Ridge mountains attract millions of visitors at this time. Wineries host all types of events such as Meet The Winemaker, Harvest Crush parties, Wine Pairing Dinners, and evenings are spent Strolling through the Grapevines. The Virginia Wine Marketing Board puts out tons of itineraries including hop on hop off tours, contests, grape stomps, and celebrations. Check out your nearest local winery and be rest assured they have some type of celebratory event this month!
