Charlottesville/Albemarle County Named Top Wine Vacation Destination by U.S. News Travel
8/27/2012

Gorgeous vineyards, colorful landscapes, romantic wine caverns, delectable cheese-and-vintage pairings, and (of course) top notch vino—these are the essentials of a great wine vacation.  Charlottesville/Albemarle County has landed a coveted spot on U.S. News Travel's Best Vacations list, ranking this area as one of the best wine vacation destinations in the world. This distinction puts Charlottesville/Albemarle County in great company with international wine havens such as Tuscany, Napa Valley and Buenos Aires. Charlottesville/Albemarle County was one of only three U.S. destinations to make the list; Napa Valley in California and Portland, Oregon were the others.
