What You Can Expect

Nelson County 5 Craft Beverage Tour

VA Distillery

Make your way to the Three Notch’d Brewing Company in Charlottesville, where this tour begins, and meet a driver/guide for the trip to your first tasting location. Visit Virginia Distillery Co. in Lovingston to find out about grain-to-glass whiskey production, then enjoy a full-tasting in the barrel room. Continue to Lovingston Winery, where you’ll sit down for a full tasting of the family-run winery’s bottles—get exclusive discounts on wines at this stop.

Take an inside look at the beer scene in the Blue Mountain Barrel House, with the option to purchase lunch to go alongside your included tasting, then tour the onsite production and brewing facilities. Drive to the top of Mt. Bold Rock for a cider tasting at Bold Rock Hard Cider, with plenty of time to visit the cider museum and cider barn (you’ll have discounted purchases at Bold Rock Hard Cider).

The final stop of the day is at Hill Top Berry Farm and Winery, where you’ll sip your way through a flight of local meads; in harvest season, freshly-picked berries are available for purchase, the perfect snack for the return trip to Charlottesville, where this tour concludes.
