Staycation: Day Trip to Red Truck Bakery and Virginia Wineries

One of my favorite getaways from Washington, D.C. is to head to a winery. Virginia has so many to choose from since it is the fifth largest producer of wine in the country. A trip to a winery is a great way to enjoy the weather and the beautiful views of the Virginia countryside.

This is one of my favorite trips.

First stop, head out to Marshall, Virginia and stop at Red Truck Bakery. They have the best pastries, pies and cakes. I like to grab a coffee and a pastry and sit at the window and watch the slower pace of a small town.

Red Truck Bakery has some delicious sandwiches to take with you so you can enjoy one of two wineries down the road.

The first winery is Barrel Oak Winery. It has a very casual vibe. Beautiful views and lots of places to sit and hang out. They have some wonderful wines and you are bound to pick one from their tasting menu.

My second favorite winery is Blue Valley Winery. They views are spectacular! The wines are delicious. You can do either a white or red tasting. Weekends they have live music to chill and unwind.

Make this a getaway anytime of the year. You will walk away relaxed.
