Hi! I’m the Virginia Boozer. I was born here in the Old Dominion but grew up in Florida. After college I found my way back, by way of DC, and I’m never leaving. I absolutely love it here. Its the most beautiful state in this great Nation, and possibly the most beautiful place in the world. At least, to me. Living in DC and Northern Virginia in my early to mid 20’s during the early 00’s was an amazing time to be introduced to Virginia’s Wine industry. My husband (then boyfriend/fiance) exploring the vineyards in every direction of DC. We fell in love with wineries like Hillsborough and Permund. It created a love of wine and deepened my affection for Virginia. Ten-ish years and one kid later, here we are 25 miles outside of Charlottesville, smack in the center of boozes-ville. We are 15 minutes from Highway 151 where you can find, Veritas, King Family, Silverback Distilery, Bold Rock, Blue Mountain Brewery – to name just a few. Our daughter in tow, you will often find us at a vineyard or brewery enjoying the scenery while playing Frisbee or watching my daughter play with the other kids whose parents had the same idea.

Here on these pages, you’ll find a bit about my adventures around the state to visit vineyards, cideries, distilleries, breweries and so much more. I’ll share my favorite boozey recipes, some of my favorite things and I’m sure others stuff too. I hope you’ll enjoy it and use it to find your favorite places. Have a suggestion for a place I should visit? Please tell me, and I’ll make it a plan!
