Nestled just north of Roanoke, Botetourt County is a scenic drive through the Blue Ridge Mountains and a slice of Americana, with charming small towns, traditions, and southern hospitality – a way of life in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The Wine Trail of Botetourt County takes you along a winding trail to three family-owned farm wineries: Blue Ridge Vineyard, with almost 300 acres of pastures, woodlands, mountains and valleys create a setting of quiet serenity; Fincastle Vineyard & Winery, located in a secluded glen just 2 miles off of I-81; and Virginia Mountain Vineyards, on more than 100 green, rolling acres, located just outside Historic Fincastle. An annual Summer Concert Series takes place at each of the three.
Each of the county’s three incorporated towns – Buchanan, Fincastle, and Troutville – offers a unique small-town experience. While each town is only a short drive apart, many visitors enjoy spending a full day exploring each one. There’s plenty to do, including music everywhere, all the time.
Float down the James River with friends. Hike through a lush forest. Discover amazing artisans and their works.Take in a concert or movie at a historic theatre. Shop for antiques. Enjoy a variety of dining options—from ol’ school to farm-to-table.
Lose your way down a scenic back road. Brush up on your history. Visit charming wineries that are developing a national reputation. Marvel at architecture dating back to the 1770s and stay anywhere from a rustic campground to a unique B&B. Meet residents who double as tour guides. It’s all right here.
