Our Maryland Fall Drive may have sold out, but do not fret! For our Virginia Fall Foliage Drive and Dine on November 8, we will enjoy a scenic drive across leafy Loudoun County to the historic Ashby Inn for brunch, and top it off with the best dessert - another scenic drive, across Mount Weather, leading to the wonderful Sunset Hills Vineyard and winery, including a tour and tasting.
We will meet (socially-distanced, or course) at a rally point north of Manassas, Virginia around 10:15 am , heading across some of our favorite Northern Virginia back roads, bound for Paris, Virginia. The Ashby Inn will be greeting us around 11:30 am with a three-course gourmet brunch, either on their covered and heated patio or inside the inn itself, depending on weather conditions.
Following brunch, we will enjoy one of our favorite drives, taking us across the famous Mount Weather into the northern reaches of Loudoun County, to the Sunset Hills Vineyard (arriving around 1:45 pm). We will park on Willow Hill adjacent to the winery, with plenty of photo ops including the winery and vineyard, our cars, and the surrounding pond, mountains and fall scenery. Here, we will be able to enjoy a private tour (including tank and barrel rooms and the vineyard, along with a wine tasting) led by owner Mike Canney (a Porsche owner). There will also be some live music! By the way, if you decide to bring your Taycan (or a Tesla), there are electric charging stations available.
Current COVID restrictions and the capacity of the different venues at this time will limit us to 35 attendees for this event, and it is currently SOLD OUT, register as a standby at msreg.com/vafall20 .
We look forward to seeing you on November 8 for the Virginia edition of our PCA Potomac Fall Foliage Drive!
