Virginia Fall Foliage Drive and Dine - Sunday, November 8, 2020

This has been, shall we say, a special and interesting year.......  For our Virginia Fall Foliage Drive and Dine on November 8,  we thought a change of pace was in store. Rather than a late afternoon drive and a long nighttime jaunt back to civilization,  we will bask in glorious daylight.  We will enjoy a scenic drive across leafy Loudoun County to the historic Ashby Inn for brunch, and top it off with the best dessert - another scenic drive, across Mount Weather, leading to the wonderful Sunset Hills Vineyard and winery, including a tour and tasting 

We will meet (socially-distanced, or course) at a rally point north of Manassas, Virginia around 10:15 am ,  heading across some of our favorite Northern Virginia back roads, bound for Paris.........Virginia.  The Ashby Inn will be greeting us around 11:30 am with a three-course gourmet brunch, either on their covered and heated patio or inside the inn itself, depending on weather conditions.  You will order your courses ahead of time as part of this registration, which will allow for both smooth service and an enjoyable visit.  Price (inclusive of 3-course meal and room fee) will be $55 per person.

Following brunch, we will enjoy one of our favorite drives, taking us across the famous Mount Weather into the northern reaches of Loudoun County, to the Sunset Hills Vineyard (arriving around 1:45 pm).  We will park on Willow Hill adjacent to the winery, with plenty of photo ops  including the winery and vineyard, our cars, and the surrounding ponds, mountains and fall scenery.  Here, we will be able to enjoy a private tour (including tank and barrel rooms and the vineyard, along with a wine tasting) led by owner Mike Canney (a Porsche owner).  The tour will cost $22 per person.  A  la carte options include a regular wine tasting for $15, with glasses and bottles of wine available from $10 to $50.  There will also be some live music!   By the way, if you decide to bring your Taycan (or a Tesla),  there are electric charging stations available.

Current COVID restrictions and the capacity of the different venues at this time will limit us to 35 attendees for this event.  

Our lunch options @ Ashby Inn will allow each attendee to choose the following at the time of registration (a starter, a  main course and a dessert).  We will also ask for any dietary restrictions you may have.  The menu is below!


BRUNCH:  $55/per person, paid at registration for the event,  selection of menu items at registration as well.

VINEYARD:  $22/person paid at registration for tour and tasting,  additional glasses, bottles or tastings of wine are extra.

Your credit card will not be immediately charged.  We will run the charges approximately ten days prior to the event.


Preference will be given to those who are either waitlisted for, or did not register for the Maryland Fall Drive on October 25.  If there is room remaining, we will welcome the Maryland drive attendees to register as well.. 

We look forward to seeing you on November 8 for the Virginia edition of our PCA Potomac Fall Foliage Drive!
