It is always sunny in wine country!  Fridays are wonderful days to tour the Charlottesville wine scene.  There are fewer crowds, the wineries are quieter, and you receive more personalized attention from the tasting room staff.  You might even meet the owner of one of the vineyards or receive an autographed bottle.  Gabriele Rausse, the father of the modern Virginia Wine industry, loves telling guests about his vineyard, the history of VA wine, and pouring for you the fruits of his labor.  If you have not taken a wine tour on a Friday we highly recommend it.   Look at all of the happy guests touring on Friday!
