On this Airstream Life vLog, we leave Tennessee Valley Winery and continue northward towards our family reunion in VA. However, we decide to split the drive up and stop in Christiansburg VA at Whitebareel Winery for the night as part of the Harvest Host program.
With a Harvest Host membership, we have access to hundreds of wineries, breweries, farms, museums and more which offer free overnight dry camping. In return, we make sure to buy something from the business which is never difficult given the types of places we get to camp.
At Whitebarrel Winery we get to camp in the parking lot next to the wine tasting room and surrounded by grape vines. It's lovely! We have a few miscues trying to taste wine since it was a Tuesday and they are sometimes closed on Tuesdays but we did eventually get in and boy are we glad we did. The wines were amazing! Courtney thinks the best wine we have had since hitting the road 2 months ago, and that's saying something given how many Harvest Hosts we've stayed at.
We had a lovely time tasting and learning about local grapes from our host. We then headed back to the Airstream with our newly acquired bottles and settled in for a quiet night. They offer water and electric hookups here for $20 but we decided to forego since we had sun for solar and plenty of water. The catalytic heater kept us nice and warm!
We spent a quiet night among the vines with no noise or light pollution to worry about. This is a great stopover if you are traveling north on 81 in VA.
We finally reach our destination and start adventuring around VA and DC in the next video, so stay tuned!
