Iron Heart Winery Food & Wine Walking Tour

By:

On Saturday, July 8, Iron Heart Winery will be hosting their summer culinary Food & Wine Walking Tour, serving five wine samples and five tapas-style dishes from Feast & Company Catering with a special tour of the farm-winery.

Nestled in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains in Allisonia, Va., the charming family-owned winery is located in an Industrial Revolution-era farm dating back to the 19th century, providing a rustic and modern atmosphere for visitors to its historic grounds.

In 2010 the winery started planting vineyards and established their Farm Stay, where you can rent cabins on the property for a lovely weekend getaway. After years of perfecting their grapes for distribution, Iron Heart finally opened the winery to the public in 2017. Currently they are producing Vidal Blanc, Riesling, Rosé, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay and Chambourcin wine styles.

The Food & Wine Walking Tour is a great way to enjoy delicious wine and food while learning more about Iron Heart’s winemaking at the vineyard’s countryside location.
