Wine lists in Rappahannock really rock. Eateries from the elite to the wayside spotlight the local wineries as well as world-class cellars.

A walk uphill from the cottage takes you to the Little Washington Winery which shares the panoramic skyline of LeFay Cottage at Little Washington’s big back yard.

More than a stone’s throw away but an easy drive are some of the finest award-winning wineries, breweries, cideries, and distillers in the state:

Narmada and Gray Ghost as well as Hinson Ford Cider and Mead in Amissville, Gadino and Quièvremont in Washington, and Rappahannock Cellars and Distillery in Huntly. Sperryville to the south is home to Copper Fox Distillery, Hopkins Ordinary Aleworks and Pen Druid Brewing.

Do a tasting, take a wine or pairing class, pour a reserve Cab Franc or a classic Virginia Viognier. Or BYOB- bring your own bubbly to Lefay!

Off the beaten path Chester Gap Cellars, Rappahannock Cellars and Dida’s Distillery. making divine wine and cocktail merriment …..

Honeymooners seeking more thrills than the quintessential foodie quest and spirits trail lure of Rappahannock have to go no farther than a fifteen-minute drive to Shenandoah National Park.

The Blue Ridge portion of the Appalachian Trail runs across the spine of the Park. It’s 20 miles to the Old Rag trail head — beacon for the extreme hiker and the premier trad-climbing Mecca in Virginia.

Thrill junkies while staying at LeFay, who would like to pursue more extreme diversions may book with Shenandoah Mountain Guides named by Southern Living Magazine as the best adventure provider in the south or hire LeFay’s photographer for amazing pictures in the Shenandoah.
