Blue Ridge Whiskey Wine Loop is a wine-lover's paradise

Scenic Virginia destinations like the Shenandoah River, Shenandoah National Park, Skyline Drive and Luray Caverns are known worldwide. The Shenandoah Valley region offers an incredible landscape blessed with a variety of getaway destinations. Yet, much of it is almost within sight of the highly-populated national Capitol area and less than one or two hours from major international airports. 

Attractions vary in size and character. One may best experience what's there by experiencing it regionally, but always from some starting point of reference. Being “there” can mean a lot of things to different people.

Incredible scenic natural beauty, wine, proximity and accessibility are all in the mix. So where does one actually start? It may take a sort of framework to help plan your own trip. Which brings us to the Blue Ridge Whiskey Wine Loop, a collectively-managed group of visitor-friendly attractions and tourism-supporting businesses that are spread out over a four-county area, mostly concentrated in Rappahannock and Page Counties. All are within or bordering the northern end of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley.

The well-known attractions and outdoor destinations of this Valley and Eastern Piedmont region are also interwoven with an ever-burgeoning Virginia wine industry. The Blue Ridge Whiskey Wine Loop includes eight wineries, one distillery, four restaurants and eight lodging providers, all organized among two main access routes: A northern access point, which begins at the Front Royal, Va. Visitors Center, and a southern access point at the Luray, Va. Visitor Center.
