Stay at an inn with a working winery and sleep among the rows of grapevines and barrels of liquid goodness. Plus, you can be first in line at the tasting room. Here’s a sampling of the hybrid accommodations in Virginia wine country.

The manor, surrounded by vineyards, features seven suites plus a tasting room with wines from Loudoun County. From $125 a night.
Fincastle Vineyard Bed

Sharp Rock Vineyards
The 25-acre property offers two private cottages with very old (150-year-old pine floors) and very new (remote-controlled fireplace) features. Rate includes wine tasting and a bottle of vino. From $200.
Beliveau Estate Winery
5415 Gallion Ridge Rd., Blacksburg
The 165-acre venue is quite a spread, with five guestrooms, a tasting room, a tiki bar, hiking trails, a lavender farm, a gift shop, stocked ponds and a fireplace to warm cheeks already rosy from the rosé. From $239.

French ooh-la-la comes to Virginia with four Gallic-y suites, from Parisian chic to Provencal country charm. $175 includes a bottle of sippy-sip.
The Hope and Glory Inn
170 White Fences Dr., Irvington
Lots of lodging options (rooms in a former schoolhouse and garden cottages) but for grape views, book one of three Tents at Vineyard Grove. The three-bedroom bungalows come with a fireplace, lounging and eating areas and a screened-in porch where you can watch the vines grow. From $310.

All total: nine suites. From $240.
Arcady Vineyard Bed & Breakfast
1376 Sutlers Rd., Charlottesville
Guests occupying the four rooms receive serious wine enthusiast treatment: a wine-and-cheese greeting at check-in, a fridge stocked with a bottle of sparkling wine, and evening turndown service with a dessert wine from the vineyard. From $220.
5810 Wessex Hundred, Williamsburg
The 28 rooms capture the spirit (and decor) of such Old World destinations as Vienna, the Cotswolds and Scandinavia. Price includes a wine tasting and tour of the barrel cellar, production area and museum. And go ahead and pocket the etched wine glass — it’s yours. Rates from $165.
