Lovingston: Democracy Vineyards Opens Tasting Room Over Labor Day Weekend

©™2012 Nelson County Life : Photos By Yvette Stafford : Though Democracy Vineyards has been producing wines for a few years now, all that was lacking was an official tasting room. Over the Labor Day weekend that happened!

Nelson County, VA

We first told you about Democracy Vineyards officially opening back in August of 2009. They’ve been producing award winning wines ever since. But one thing they didn’t have until recently was an official tasting room for folks to drop by and check out their wines when in the area. That all changed over Labor Day weekend as Democracy’s brand spanking new tasting room opened complete with a celebration and their annual blessing of the harvest presented by Dr. Eugene Thomas of Clarendon United Methodist Church. A few finishing touches remain to be completed, but all in all it’s ready to go!

The Nelson County Ruritans also returned to cook up their burgers and dogs along with Turtle Zwadlo and his fellow band members, Yankee Dixee, sharing their special blend of mountain folk music.

Lot's of neat memorabilia covers the walls at Democracy as you enter the new tasting room.
