The "Original" Shenandoah Valley ava, located in Virginia (as opposed to the Shenandoah Valley in California) is located on the "other side of the mountain" from Virginia's most reknown central region entitled the "Monticello" AVA, so-called for the home of Thomas Jefferson which is located in the center of the region. The Shenandoah Valley of Virginia is the most rapidly growing wine-producing region in the state with new vineyards and wineries popping up as quick as one turns his/her head. Here is a list of the current wineries located along the Shenandoah Valley Wine Trail: http://shenandoahvalleywinetrail.com/Wineries.htm I highly encourage a visit to the region as they are truly producing some of the best wines in ALL of Virginia, let alone on the Atlantic Coast. They're ample use of newer, hybrid varietals, such as Chambourcin and Seyval Blanc has also stirred excitement among travellers and tasters alike, and the climate is proving every bit as bountiful for Virginia's white staple varietal: Viognier. The 2008, Barren Ridge Viognier in particular, from the Shenandoah Valley, was my personal choice for wine of the year for 2010. It's worth checking out, and there are some lovely places to stay that make a two day trip a casual and beautifully rustic experience for those of us on the East Coast. – Description from ChipDWood
