A trip to Virginia Wine Country

October 19, 2017
The outdoor areas of Quattro Goombas Winery in Middleburg, Virginia

My knowledge of wine is limited, so when people say that they are going to “wine country,” I assume that they are headed to Napa or Europe. Apparently Virginia has a wine country as well, which we explored on a recent day trip to Middleburg, VA.

Our first stop was Quattro Goomba’s — a winery about 40 miles away from Washington D.C.

Quattro Goomba’s also has a brewery. That is where we spent most of our time because: beer > wine (particularly on muggy weekends.)

Quattro Goomba’s is a very family-friendly place that bans tour buses. There are large open spaces with dogs and children running around.
