I recently had an opportunity to travel the Botetourt County Wine Trail. It is a bit short, consisting of just 3 vineyards, but the experiences presented by each are quality and worthwhile. Each is unique and offers a fair variety of wines, some award winners among them. I will refrain from critiquing the wines as I have a love of wine but I am no expert in the general public's palate preferences. The three vineyards in Botetourt as as follows, in no particular order: Fincastle Vineyard & Winery, Virginia Mountain Vineyards and Blue Ridge Vineyard.
