The chill of winter will be here before you know it, so get outside and enjoy the mild autumn weather while you still have a chance! One of the best places to do just that near Lakeside Apartments? The Winery at Bull Run! This working farm vineyard in Fairfax County is located right next to Manassas Battlefield Park, providing visitors with a sweeping view of 5,000 acres of preserved 19th-century farmland.

If you’ve never visited The Winery at Bull Run before, schedule your first visit around a self-guided wine tasting. For only $15, you’ll receive a flight of six wines with tasting notes. From there, grab a bottle and your picnic blanket (outside food is allowed) and use those souvenir tasting glasses to pour a few glasses to enjoy before you leave.

Remember to check out the winery’s upcoming special events, like the Haunted Wine Tours taking place through early November!
