Create New Family Memories with Our Christmas Winery Tours

Are you looking for something a bit different this Holiday season?  If so, may we recommend gathering your closest friends and members of your family and partaking in one of our delightful Christmas winery tours?

If you’ve never been to Blue Valley, you’re in for a real treat.  Our winery is nestled in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains, which provides a picturesque, storybook setting for your day.  Each season brings new wonders to behold, so if you fall in love with the area the first time you visit, be sure to come back to see us at various points throughout the year.  The first time you come up during the autumn to witness the changing of the leaves with us, you’ll be absolutely enchanted and amazed.

Of course, if you come for one of our Christmas winery tours, then you’ll be treated to a winter wonderland filled with sparkling holiday décor, both inside and out.  If you’ve been tasked with planning a wedding, bachelor party, reception, corporate retreat or other event, while you’re enjoying the tour, be sure to take mental notes as you’ll get a firsthand look at the various venue spaces we make available for events.  We’ve got something for every taste and preference and you’re sure to find the perfect venue space for whatever sort of event you may be planning.

Our Christmas winery tours also take you behind the curtain so you can see our winemaking process and state of the art production facility for yourself.  Then, of course, at the conclusion of the tour, you’re sure to have worked up quite an appetite, so feel free to join us for a meal. Our menu is filled with a variety of wholesome and delicious foods that are a perfect compliment to the wines you can also enjoy.

Speaking of wines, no Christmas winery tour of Blue Valley would be complete without a wine tasting and we have a number of exceptional vintages to sample and enjoy.  Although written descriptions are no substitute for an actual tasting, we’ll outline a few of the vintages you’ll be able to sample here to whet your appetite for the day you come out to visit us.  Here’s a small sampling of what you have to look forward to:

This wonderful vintage is made from a blend of estate grown Chambourcin (75%) combined with Vidal Blanc (25%) with 2.4% residual sugar.  It features opening flavors of blueberry, raspberry and a hint of oak. If served chilled, it will enhance the acidity and bring out hints of citrus and crab apple flavors.

Didn’t see anything here that piqued your interest?  Not to worry, we’ve got plenty of others to choose from, and again, we understand that written descriptions can’t possible take the place of an in-person tasting, but this at least gives you an idea of what you have to look forward to.
