Our last winery visit during our trip to Virginia was to Villa Appalaccia. The wine, as always, was excellent and the locale was beautiful. We planned badly by going right after a late breakfast. The meal was amazing at Mabry Mill, but we were unable to enjoy the bread and cheese tray at the winery. We did enjoy just sitting and relaxing with a glass of wine. The views are gorgeous in every direction.
The wines at Villa Appalaccia are made in an Italian style and make use of many Italian style grapes. Rosa, a white wine made with the Primativo grape, Sangiovese, and Corvina are all reminders of their Italian flair.
Visiting is worth the trip even though it is off the beaten path, just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. If you visit, I recommend staying at Bent Mountain Lodge and visiting nearby Floyd. You’ll have a wonderful time.
