Things to Do
Hiking: Old Rag Mountain and White Oak Canyon
The trail heads for these beautiful hikes are around the corner from our tasting room.
Graves Mountain Lodge
This family run institution, two miles from DuCard has festivals celebrating springtime, bluegrass, apple harvest and many other events as well as lodging, a restaurant, trail rides and a petting zoo for kids.
Shenandoah National Park
Take Skyline Drive along the crest of the mountains through the woods and past spectacular vistas. Hike in the shade of oak trees along the Appalachian Trail, discover the stories from Shenandoah’s past, or just relax in the wonder of wilderness.
This glorious 2,650-acre estate in Orange County, Virginia, was the lifelong home of James Madison. Recently restored to its early 1800s appearance, this is where the man wrote the Constitution of the United States, looking out over the Blue Ridge from his upstairs office. Incredible. Tours of house and grounds available.
One the most famous and popular attractions in our region, Luray Caverns is 'over the mountain' half an hour to the west on Route 211. Open dailiy year-round for tours, it's one of the world's most spectacular natural wonders.
Beautiful plants and trees for your garden, operated by nice and knowledgeable local folks and located just down from us in Syria.
Old Raggedy Ann Antiques
Lucy has some nice pieces, at the Etlan crossroads.
MAD ARTS - Madison Arts Exchange
Great shop, down Route 29 about 5 miles south of Madison, with local arts and crafts, garden supplies and plants, and an eclectic mix of other interesting things.
Artist studios, farmer's co-op store and restaurant in wonderfully renovated old apple storage warehouse in Sperryville.
Blue Ridge Lane
Beautiful local farm to the east of DuCard, with horseback trail rides and lessons. Take a picnic and some wine and enjoy the countryside.
