Additional Tour Information:
Route 81 South from Pennsylvania is one of my favorite highways to drive. The various mountain ranges that catch your eye as you head into Virginia, Tennessee are breath taking.
This tour includes 4 wineries, but there is so much more to see if wine tasting isn't for you. Let us customize your tour and travel package.
Come join the fun!
