Take in a beautiful view while enjoying a glass of wine
Mother’s Day is coming up, and this could be a great activity for you and your mom to enjoy together. There are two wineries that offer two beautiful, but different views. The Winery at La Grange is located in Haymarket, VA, and provides visitors with a beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Enjoy food, music, and wine on the weekends at La Grange when the weather is nice. The Winery at Bull Run is the closest winery to Washington, DC, but that is not all that is special about it. The winery sits adjacent to Manassas National Battlefield Park, so you can enjoy a glass of wine after a light walk around the battlefield. If it starts raining, visit Trummer’s, a European-style coffee shop and wine bar in Gainesville, VA.
