Reportedly the site of a colonial-era tavern, it seems that Saude Creek Vineyards has a little Revolutionary War history of its own. George Washington and the dashing French General Rochambeau reportedly lodged at a tavern that once existed on the site while marching to Yorktown. Part of the Colonial Virginia Wine Trail, this Virginia Governors Cup winner produces stunning whites including an aromatic and peachy Pamunkey Fall blend of Chardonel and Chardonnay, an Elegant Vidal Blanc that is like champagne without the bubbles, and a crisp Winter White Reisling. They also produce several red blends that are available for tasting and several reserve wines that are available for bottle purchase only.

Saude Creek Vineyards is an exceptionally handsome and comfortable property with views of rolling hills, forests, and vines. The tasting room is spacious with plenty of seating and a stone fireplace. There's lots of outdoor deck seating with cozy fire pits in chilly weather. This is definitely a place you will want to gather with friends and family. Saude features live music and events on weekends as well as tasty homemade barbecue.
