Stone Tower Winery is located at 19857 Hogback Mountain Road, Leesburg, Va., about 60 minutes from downtown D.C. They offer two types of Chardonnay, a Viognier and a Sanglier blend.

We hadn't heard of Stone Tower Winery before the day we met the owners Mike and Kristi Huber (also owners of Belfort Furniture) at an event where they were debuting a new furniture collection. They seemed just as passionate about wine as the furniture, which is probably a good thing.

Proximity to wine is one of those vital life needs, right? While many Virginia wineries are 2-3 hours away from the city (the horror), Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg is just about an hour away.

These views are why we think this vineyard has what it takes to become one of the strong players when it comes to wine making (and entertaining) in Virginia.

Kristi Huber said that they discourage large groups (except for private weddings) only because of the lack of intimacy they bring. So luckily, we won't see masses of cargo vans pulling up anytime soon.

The new tasting room (opening Nov. 2014) has the views, multiple levels and an almost must-visit enticement about it. It features a barrel room the entire length of the building (with the tasting room above) and a grassy area that leads from the patio directly to the pond in the valley, where you'll find even more seating.

As for the Huber family, we are sort of watching their life play out before us. They've just had their first wedding at the winery last June where they gave away their older daughter, Lauren. Their younger daughter, Lacy, works in the tasting room, where you'll find her most weekends.
