first_imgCraft Beer’s the Thing, Local Wine Too!Vines as in acres of gorgeous local grapevines—and the award-winning wine they produceBines as in locally grown hops, the ingredient used to create that distinctive bitterness and a variety of flavors and aromas in delicious local craft beers.DuCard Vineyards and Bald Top Brewing, two outstanding local producers, are collaborating all weekend to offer special tastings, live music, tours, food trucks and more at both their locations. And to celebrate the good luck that it all happens to rhyme. Learn more about the event here.DuCard Vineyards borders Shenandoah National Park out the back patio, and is Virginia’s “Greenest Winery” for its environmental stewardship, solar power and sustainability. You can even recharge your Tesla or other electric cars on site. It’s the #1 top rated winery in Central Virginia on Trip Advisor and features Gold Medal winning wines, both red and white.Bald Top Brewing is Virginia’s first historic ‘farm brewery,’ located (you guessed it) on a hilltop with rows of hops on one side and vistas of farms and fields on the other. Having just completed its first year of operations, it has already developed a reputation for good times, with awards for its creative beers.The two tasting rooms are only 20 minutes apart, with Shenandoah National Park’s beautiful White Oak Canyon Falls trail (two miles to cooling waterfalls) right in the middle—for those who want to walk it off a bit during the day’s tastings. Both locations will offer samples from both producers. And customers who visit both facilities will receive a discounted tasting fee, special discounts on take-home growlers and wine bottles, plus the limited edition and highly collectible Vines & Bines t-shirtHours for the event are Friday 12-9 at DuCard (4-9 at Bald Top), and at both locations Saturday 12-8 and Sunday 12-6.
