What’s New for 2015

Wine, Beer & Beverage-Wine Tasting Shenandoah Valley Shenandoah County has always offered great wine for visitors to enjoy over the years including one of the oldest wineries in Virginia. As more viticulturists learn the benefits of growing grapes in the Shenandoah Valley, more and more vineyards are popping up including Muse Vineyards which plans to open on weekends this summer just outside of Woodstock. Can’t wait till summer to try them out? All Things Virginia @ The Farmhouse will begin carrying a selection of Muse wines including their Rousanne 2013, Chardonnay 2013, Calliope 2013, and Clio 200 as of February 28. Blue GrowlersIt’s not all about wine at the vineyards though. The Winery at Kindred Pointe introduces their own brand, Life Is Hard, Hard Cider. Visitors to the tasting room which presides in a converted horse stable can now enjoy everything from Malbec and Chardonnay to three varieties of cider. Come in the spring and take a stroll through the many walking trails on premise or pack a picnic to enjoy with your wine. Microbreweries have been sprouting up all over Virginia and Shenandoah County is no exception. The county welcomed its first brewery, Swover Creek Farm Brewery back in November. This Virginia Century Farm has been serving local residents and visitors for years as a pick your own berry farm with a small store selling locally-sourced farm-crafted sausages, homemade jams , and baked goods but decided to start growing hops two years ago. They currently offer small batch brews, but plan to expand production this year. Eventually, they hope to roast their own farm-grown barley, rye and wheat for use in their beers. Sunny Coming SoonWoodstock Brew House also hopes to make its debut in 2015 in an old Casey Jones Denim plant just off main street in historic downtown Woodstock. The building has been renovated for customers to watch the beer making process in the basement through a cut out in the original wood floors of the bar and restaurant above. The Brew House is also home to 1752 BBQ for the perfect pairing of beer and BBQ. Festivals: People Clapping in crowd by Peggy EasterlyMusic lovers have another reason to visit Shenandoah County with the launch of two new music festivals: Rockin’ the Valley and the Strasburg Blues Festival.

In addition to music, Bryce Resort came up with a way for all you bike enthusiasts to beat the winter blues!  Hit the slopes on March 7 for the first Winter Bike Jam.  just $10 to register to race down Redeye ski slope.   This should be a fun event for riders and spectators alike with music and plenty of laughs!   Attractions: The Virginia Museum of the CiVMCW-175vil War completed their multi-phased upgrade project this year with the installation of new carpet throughout the museum.
