What you need to know:
Villa Appalaccia brings a unique taste to southwest Virginia. Located just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the husband and wife owner team make wines in the Italian tradition. The vineyard is one of the few in the state that is not planted on clay, but rather on shale, very similar to Italian vineyards. Stop by this quaint Italian villa for wine tasting, a picnic of local cheeses, bread, and other snacks, and a game of bocce ball.
Note that GPS is not 100% accurate, and signage is limited from the Parkway. Find accurate directions here.
