This weekend is going to be awesome.  High of 87 on sunday.  I can only think of one thing to do when it is that hot out.  Wine Tours.  Here in DC, at some the winerys you can take wine tours with your dogs.  Tucker appreciates it.

Tucker looking forward to a little wine tour.

Philip Carter Winery

Hume, Virginia 22639

Open Thursday to Monday from 11AM to 6PM.  This winery is a tad bit closer than the previous one so you don’t have to wake up as early.  They offer a nice selection of whites and reds.  This winery is also dog friendly.  Tucker gives it two paws. 

Sunset Hills Vineyards

Open 12-6 Saturdays and Sundays.  Located just past Leesburg, this winery is close, no need to wake up early.  That is honestly my number one determining factor about going on wine tours, how early do I have to get up?  Show up later and make sure to stay for the sunset.  It is Gorgeous.

Barrel Oak Winery
