If you're wondering what The Winery at Bull Run looked like in 1862, just take a gander at the mural in its main tasting room. Local artist Tom Mullany hand-painted the 20-foot masterpiece, which illustrates the former farm as it looked more than 150 years ago. It hangs over the stone bar, a complement to the rest of the vintage touches (think reclaimed barn wood and handcrafted wooden beams overhead).
Artifacts from the Civil War, many of them discovered right on the winery's property, serve as historical conversation starters in the tasting room. Peruse the relics and learn about local history as you sip on the carefully crafted wines. They feature grapes grown right out in the farm vineyard and encompass a variety of red, white, and fruit wines, so there's something for every taste.
