What’s one of Smith Mountain Lake’s best kept secrets? One of the first things to come to mind is the local vineyards, places like the White Rock Vineyards and Winery. Family-owned and operated, the White Rock Vineyards are a wonderful chance to enjoy fine local wines and beautiful scenery on their farm in the Goodview area of Bedford County. They have been in operation for over fifteen years and now have over six acres of grapes planted on their farm from which they produce a choice selection of excellent wines. Their website lists their whole selection here with detailed descriptions of the qualities of each wine. If that isn’t enough to tempt your taste buds and arrest your attention, then take a look at these photos of the White Rock’s charming tasting room, where visitors to the farm can relax in rocking chairs and look out over the vineyards. The White Rock is open for tours and tastings from 12:00 to 5:00 P.M.Thursday through Monday. They can be reached at (540) 890-3359, through their website, or by email here. So take some time to visit the White Rock Vineyards and Winery this summer!
