The fall season starts weekend wine tastings at Michie Tavern. The tavern's General Store presents several Virginia wines for customers to sample on Saturdays and Sundays.

All wines served are local and some are selected by the employees.

The store stocks more robust reds in the fall but peach is always the favorite.

"Peach dessert wine is our favorite wine to see all year round. A lot of people buy it in the spring to soak our peaches in, they'll buy it in the fall for the holiday punches and then they'll buy it in the winter because they can use it for cooking," said Genevieve King, who gives tastings there.

Michie Tavern says chocolate wine is also a big seller.

The tastings will continue every weekend until the New Year.
