Several months ago Marshall Molliver commented on my blog about his vineyard and winery in South Central Virginia. There is a link to his website on the blog. Since we were traveling to Southern Virginia, we decided to visit Molliver’s. We googled a map and set out on Saturday. I have to say, the map looked a lot easier to follow than it turned out to be. We traveled twenty miles on a rather small two-lane mountain road. After what seemed like forever, we reached the end of the road. My reaction was to pull out a map to find another way home.
The rest of the drive was uneventful and we arrived at Molliver Vineyards & Winery. The winery is relatively new, opening in 2009. Molliver has 135 acres in Halifax County, with ten acres in vineyard . They have a cozy tasting room with lovely décor. We tasted several of their wines. My favorite was a Vidal Blanc, with its crisp clear taste. We were also intrigued by a Vin Chocolat that is a red wine with a chocolate finish.
Our visit was enjoyable and the drive back over the mountains was much less eventful. It you’re in the area, stop by for a tasting. Visit their link here on my blog.
