In a state replete with wineries, the fact that more than 25 wineries lie within 30 minutes of The Inn at Vineyards Crossing in Hume isn't all that astounding. What is
noteworthy is which
Once you drop your bags in the sitting room of the Inn’s Commonwealth Suite, within only an hour’s drive time, you can taste wines from one of the nation’s oldest winemaking families (Philip Carter Winery), prop your cowboy boots up on the front porch rail of a horse farm (Desert Rose Ranch & Winery), practice saying “oh, wow” repeatedly (Rappahannock Cellars), pick up your iconic Drink Naked t-shirt (Naked Mountain Winery), and still get to Barrel Oak Winery in time for sunset and firepits on the patio.
Back at the Inn, you can pop the cork by the pool or Jacuzzi, or in the garden, then settle in for a long read in an overstuffed leather chair—if you can tear your eyes away from the log and mortar walls and weathered plank floors of the late 1700’s Tavern building.
Virginia Wine Tasting (or tea) is at 4 daily, and a locavore dinner can be pre-arranged and served in-house. The Huntsman Breakfast is included in the room price.
All of the Inn’s rooms have king-sized beds and in-room baths, and offer TVs and wifi.
If you plan ahead, you might be able to book yourself into a tour and tasting at nearby RdV Vineyard—Virginia’s luxury brand—or find your way to Linden Vineyards, which has become so renowned that you’ll need to buy a case to hang out on their members-only deck (and you may). Or head south to India-influenced Narmada Winery, bocce at Gadino Cellars, the hugely popular Gray Ghost Vineyards, Wine Boot Camp at Little Washington Winery, or maybe stop in at the appointment-only buzz generator, Quievrement Vineyards.
Or, for something different, ask the Innkeeper to arrange an in-room massage or a trail ride at Marriott Ranch. Which sounds fine, but it’s not quite as good as wine, is it?
