Veritas Winery and Vineyard in Virginia has a lovely setting. However, I was disappointed in the wines in general. I thought their best were the Sauvignon Blanc 2012, the Claret 2012, the Scintilla sparkling wine and the Othello 2010 dessert wine. This is a larger winery in comparison to several neighboring it. It is an attractive location. It is set up to host events. They have a large interior area with fireplaces and an outdoor seating area where the natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains can be appreciated. The place had a bit of a "touristy" feel to it. The staff was pleasant, but it was a job not a passion to them, unlike some of the other local wineries. Instead of a winery with a beautiful natural vista, if felt more like an event venue with the winery as a marketing gimmick. Of the local wineries in the area it has been my least favorite. If you are in the area anyway and want to include it, it is not a "must miss", but if it is between Veritas and one of the other wineries in the areas, this is the one to pass on. The others will give you more of a local feel and better wines.
