The best part about The Winery at Bull Run (15950 Lee Highway, Centreville, Va.) is that you don't feel like you're just driving up to just a NoVa vineyard -- you're pulling up next to the historic Manassass National Battlefield Park.

Inside the winery you'll find a cozy fireplace with a few sofas, although the outdoor heated patio is equally welcoming on not-too-chilly winter afternoons.

You'll also find a fireplace and patio at the seemingly dilapidated (but still maintained and attractive) "ruins" of the original Entwisle estate house, now called the Stone Mansion House on the grounds of the winery.
