This romantic little winery is in a pretty redwood building with a black tin roof, a handful of tables on the lawn and front porch. Inside the century-old restored school house, draped with branches and tiny white lights, a polished wood bar - just big enough for two - and a cozy corner couch and fireplace complete the scene. (Poachers beware: the centerpiece, a stuffed bobcat, was caught flat-footed in the vineyards.)
The thought that went into building a lovely tasting room didn't end there; Sans Soucy has some unusual wines, as well, including the only 100% Tempranillo in the state; a passito or Amarone-style wine called Legacy, whose grapes were dried in a tobacco barn; and a lovely ginger wine, for which the winery grows its own ginger - the only winery in the country to do so, according to the owner.
Craft beer is now available at the winery, the new home of Staunton River Brewing Company.
Sans Soucy Vineyards is a thirty minute drive from Appomattox, where, on the morning of April 9, 1865, General Robert E. Lee's army fought its final engagement before it surrendered to the Union Army.
Pets and children welcome; bring your picnic; parking for buses/RVs; private parties welcome inside or outside.
