Wine Trip to King Family Vineyard for Polo & Wine!

Join us as we travel on Sunday, October 6th with our friends and partners from RVA to the Monticello AVA* for a unique wine and polo adventure! Our destination is the award-winning King Family Vineyard in Albemarle County (Nominated for Best Winery Tour in 2019 and Voted #2 Winery Tour in 2018 by USA Today!) where we will share a tailgate picnic on the lawn of Roseland Farm, taste King Family Vineyard wines and be entertained by the last polo match of the season.  It will be a great day at the vineyard!

Here are the particulars:

Transportation will be safely provided by a James Limousine coach, which will depart at 10:00 a.m. from the Parham Road Ride and Park (Fordson Rd, Henrico, VA 23233). Travel time will be approximately one hour (snacks and bus-beverages will be provided by WWS).  After arriving at the vineyard, we’ll have an informal wine tasting and enjoy our tailgate picnic during the polo match (scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm). More information about the polo event can be found here: https://kingfamilyvineyards.com/polo/Optional vineyard tours are available at 1:00 and 3:00 pm – see Note below. (If the polo event is canceled, we will travel to King Family Vineyard, White Hall Winery & Stinson Vineyard.)  Our journey will come to an end back at the Parham Road Ride and Park lot by 6:00 pm.
