Tell people you are visiting all of Virginia's wineries, and the first thing they'll say isn't "why?" - it's "You're going to LOVE Peaks of Otter!" They say this with a little bemused grin and a shake of the head and a warning about Kiss the Devil - the winery's jalapeno wine that's typically taken with a chaser of Cheese Whiz. Now THAT, my friends, is fun!
Virginia's first fruit winery, the much-loved Peaks of Otter now produces a couple of vinifera wines, but fruit wines are clearly still first in their hearts: they produce nearly 40 different types.
