2021 SML Visitor Guide - 41

BROOKS MILL WINERY

Sharing a bottle of wine with friends around a campfire. Sampling craft beer,
cider or spirits together after a one-for-the-books kind of day on the lake.
These memorable experiences are enhanced exponentially when the
libations you choose are locally sourced.

J BOHN BISHOP

For more than 15 years,
Hickory Hill Vineyards has
been a popular spot for
friends, families and neighbors
to gather on Saturday
evenings from April through
October to enjoy wine, a picnic
and live music, all in a relaxed,
picturesque outdoor setting.
Laughing children chase
fireflies on the expansive lawn
while adults enjoy casual
conversations as the sun
sets over the vineyard. Local
musicians entertaining from
the porch of the charming
farmhouse (that also serves
as the winery's tasting room)
makes for an idyllic evening.

At Smith Mountain Lake you'll find delightful wineries with stunning views,
superb breweries with distinctive styles, and a trendy distillery serving
small-batch spirits with a touch of Franklin County's infamous bootlegging
history.
Most offer special events throughout the year, often with festive live music
and tasty regional fare.
" Being at Chaos Mountain is like meeting up with a bunch of long lost friends,
catching up and telling stories - all over some delicious craft beers, " said
Wendy Hallock, owner of Chaos Mountain Brewing, which offers a wide
selection of beers from crisp lagers to full-flavored IPAs, as well as tasty
seasonal varieties.
H.T. and Rhonda Page, who own Brooks Mill Winery in Wirtz, turned what
was a long-time hobby of creating wines from fruit grown on their farm into a
full-time business in 2008. They grow blackberries, blueberries, pears,
apples, peaches and cherries, crafting them into not only sweet and semisweet wines but dry varietals, as well.
Rhonda Page said a visit to Brooks Mill's quaint tasting room is as much
about history, education and socializing as it is about tasting.
" A lot of visitors want to know why we wanted to start the vineyard, " she said.
" And many are really interested in what we grow and how we harvest it
because it's a different process than traditional grape wineries. "

So whether you prefer a quiet, romantic tasting for two or a lively weekend
with friends and family that you'll reminisce about for years to come, you'll
find it in the Smith Mountain Lake region.
