Geocache Description:

A unique way to enjoy Virginia’s growing wine culture – the VA Wine Trail of geocaches!
As wineries in Virginia gain world-wide recognition, my friends and I chose to combine our love of geocaching and wine by creating a VA Wine Trail of geocaches.

The proprietor of this property has graciously allowed us to make this cache available when the property is open to the public – Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 11am-5pm. Please be sure to seek this cache during the public hours!
