Virginia's seasons

Know what the best season is to visit Virginia and what to wear.

Winter
Winter

(November - February) One of the slowest seasons, you'll enjoy open roads and temps in the high 20's to the low 40's. Leave extra time between destinations as you can run into icy roads and snow.

Spring
Spring

(March - May) As temps warm up, ranging from high 40's to the low 60's the air is clear, the vines are starting to wake up and it's release season, so expect the traffic to pick up, but tolerable.

Summer
Summer

(June - August) This is peak season, so we recommend that you plan ahead by booking your hotel stay, your tours and tastings. The weather can reach to the high 90's with humidity, so be sure to dress for the weather and stay hydrated.

Fall
Fall

(September - October) The fall season is one of the prettiest times to visit this region because of the fall colors and the later in fall the better as tourist traffic falls off, leaving you to feel like the only one in the tasting room. Dress in layers as the mornings are cold with afternoon temps rising to the low 50's to low 60's.

Tips

Virginia's travel tips

Traveling to Virginia

  • Arriving in the Virginia wine region gives you plenty of airports to point your compass to. One of the most popular is Dulles (IAD) and Richmond (VIA), but if you plan on checking out DC's popular historical sites and museums, you should also consider Baltimore (BWI) or Reagan International (DCA). If flying privately, there's plenty of options to choose from in the area like Leesburg Executive Airpirt (JYO).
  • There are bus chartering companies that you can book to take you about the wine region or use popular ride-sharing apps like Lyft or Uber, but do expect to wait some time after your visit to each property due to the vast size of the area.
  • In this region, there are no public, scheduled buses to get you around wine country, so private is your best choice.
