Don't forget to pair your wine tasting with a gourmet picnic overlooking the rolling hills or enjoy a leisurely meal at one of the many winery restaurants offering farm-to-table cuisine.
4. Immerse Yourself in German Heritage: Fredericksburg's rich German heritage is evident in its charming architecture, delicious cuisine, and festive traditions.
