Enjoy an Afternoon with a Glass of Wine at the Potomac Point Winery


When most people think of Virginia Wineries they immediately gravitate to the west of the DC area towards the Shenandoah Valley and southwest to the Charlottesville area.  However tucked just south of Quantico Marine Base in north Stafford County is the one year old Potomac Point Winery.

 

 

Grape Vines at Port Potomac WineryDown a country road off of Route 1 you will come upon a gravel driveway that leads you up a hill past newly planted grapevines and at the top of the hill a clearing where you come upon a large Mediterranean style building.  The building features a large tasting room, cozy lounge complete with board games, banquet rooms and outside terraces for enjoying bistro style dining.  Around the grounds you spy a picnic pavilion that can be used for a family gathering or a larger corporate event.  The afternoon that we stopped by to check it out the weather was pleasant and the outside dining area was busy.





Wine Tasting Room at Port Potomac WineryFor those interested in sampling the wines, the newer vintages, made with grapes currently coming from leased vines around Virginia you have a choice of different sampling menus to try.  We went all the way for the 13 wine sampler for the reasonable price of $10.00.  With a variety of white, roses, reds and ports you can get a good idea of where the winery is headed in the future.  In addition to the wines to sample there is also an olive oil bar for patrons to try as well.   









Bistro Dining at Port Potomac WineryWe had already had lunch before we arrived otherwise we would have been tempted to try a few bites from the menu as it all looked great.  Friday nights from 6-9:30 through the summer Potomac Point Winery features a live band for your entertainment.  The winery now offers wedding packages as well and can accommodate up to 250 people in the ballroom.  The winery was listed as one of the Top 5 Stunning Wedding Sites not to be missed by Virginia Brides Magazine.

This sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon! Beautiful setting with good food and wine!

BTW, you might want to consider posting this in the Wine Lovers of Active Rain Group!

Rich-Does the group come with virtual wine tastings?

Cindy - I just learned something new.  And I believe this need to be featured!  (perhaps I'm biased because I just got back from a wine bar!!)

Tchaka-you need to follow Pat Kennedy's rules of no blogging while loopy!  Are you sure it wasn't a Whine Bar?

LOL!!  You might be right about Pat Kennedy's rule, Cindy...I was certainly in a good mood that evening.  :-)

Cindy,

That sounds great!  Next time we're in the area we will stop by! We have a similar winery in SW Virginia (Chateau Morriesette off of the Blue Ridge Parkway in Floyd, VA) Weekends are packed full of outdoor events with live music & wine tastings. One weekend will be jazz, one weekend blues, beach, etc.. I think this weekend is "Hokie" weekend and Virginia Techs Hokie Bird mascot will be there. If you get a chance, go to www.thedogs.com and check it out. If your in the area, another good time to visit is in the fall when there is so much activity (not to mention fall spendor) on the parkway & at Mabry's Mill when the maple festival is going on.....Good Times! 

Chateau Morrisette

If anyone needs directions or a map of the parkway sent to them, just let me know and I'd be happy to send one out!

Diana-I have enjoyed a sip at Chateau Morriestte and agree it is a great place to have a sip or two.  Hopefully a few other Virginia Wine Fans will step up with their favorites as well.  A bunch of wine sipping Hokies could be scary though (said from a two generation Hokie family)!

OH my!  I love a good glass of wine and now that I am no longer pregnant or breastfeeding I am definitely craving one!

Wonder if they have added some new varieties to their tasting menu?
