Your trip will begin with a scenic 55-minute ride from Washington DC’s bustling Penn Quarter to Virginia’s cozy Bull Run region – the site of the first major battle of the American Civil War. There, you will enjoy an optional walking tour of the Winery at Bull Run’s historic grounds before tasting the vineyard's palatable selection of wines.
Established in 2012 as a scenic working farm vineyard, The Winery at Bull Run lies on 225 acres adjacent to Manassas National Battlefield Park and next door to an equestrian farm. The winery itself was built to represent the two types of historic barns in Northern Virginia – a smaller 1800s-style barn and a larger 1920s-era dairy barn complete with a hayloft and hay lift cable and beam.
Try combining the bold and opulent flavors of your wine with delectable appetizers available for purchase. Edible items include fresh-baked baguettes, decadent cheeses, chocolates, prosciutto, and more. Before journeying back to Washington, you will receive a complimentary wineglass as a thankful memento!
