We decided to go to Charlottesville even though Mother Nature had dumped over a foot of snow there two days before our visit. We thought traveling would be difficult, but the roads from DC were clear and the vineyards were open, what luck for us! Blenheim is set in a beautiful location, the view for the back deck is gorgeous. You can spend an afternoon there just enjoying the views. The great thing about Blenheim is that while you enjoy the view, you can enjoy some good wine as well. Between Blenheim, Trump, and Jefferson, you get a a great sampling of Virginia wine. The staff at Blenheim were friendly and laid back. I look forward to visiting again when the weather warms up.
