Richmond ideas?

Next weekend I am getting my Christmas present from Kate - a weekend trip to Richmond, Virginia that is heavy on history tourism. I was at a conference there briefly a couple years ago, and we've been to the suburbs to visit some friends, but it's been a while since I've gotten to explore the city.

I have a few ideas of where I want to go, but I was wondering if readers have any favorites. Any ideas on historic sites, and also good places to eat?

Below is a before-and-after sketch of Richmond during the war.


  1. Wineries, right?? Rumor has that there's a winery near Richmond that (sometimes) has a White Norton. I think it may be back later this year :)

    I actually don't know much about Richmond, so I hope you get more (better) feedback that I can check out as well!

  2. Ya - we won't make it down to New Kent if that's what you're thinking - but I think we should at least get to James River Cellars.

    Have you opened anything you picked up at Dry Mill? We've had two of them and were re-surprised at how good they are. Big-time kudos to New Kent and Dry Mill for being relatively new establishments that you could be fooled into thinking that they had been doing it forever.

  3. We have--the Norton, of course! We used the new wine aerator, which worked beautifully. Yum :)
