The owners are true connoisseurs of wine. They travel to Italy every year, so they definitely know good wine! The wine *and* the wine-tasting chateau at Villa Appalachia is Tuscan-inspired. It's right off the Blue Ridge Parkway and their wine is of much higher quality than the wine at Chateau Morrisette.

The atmosphere is beyond beautiful with amazing views of the mountains. I highly recommend the premium wine tasting...you will not be disappointed! This is the perfect place to order a cheese platter... 更多

Villa Appalaccia offers my favorite finds. It's not over populated with tourists, those that come are there for the savory exploration, views and Italian revelry. The Bocce court and italian style courtyard were favorites of ours.
This hidden gem is well worth the visit and was beyond impressed. The ambiance is an experience to Italy without the passport. The wines are amazing. Go for the reserve tasting. You won't have these wines anywhere else in the Virginia area. Get the cheeseboard too. It's a lunch and a half. We saw three other couples/families, including ourselves walk... 更多
