LOVE Works Photo Opportunities Abound in Nelson County!

“Virginia is for Lovers” has been Virginia’s slogan for decades, so it’s not surprising that people from all over come to Virginia for a little “Selfie Love.” One of the best new photo opportunities these days are LOVEWorks, which have been built all over Virginia. The signs, which spell out “Love,” showcase Virginian ingenuity. Business owners in Nelson County have embraced LOVEWorks, and the signs can be seen all over the beautiful, green Central Virginia gem.

Stop at Wild Man Dan’s Beercentric B&B, which is located along the famous Nelson 151 trail. The owners of this unique craft brewery offer tours, beer classes, revolving taps, and a pretty nice place to sleep. Wild Man Dan’s LOVEWork is made out of kegs and scrap wood that features their logo, so make sure to snap a picture with it before you leave the B&B for the day to enjoy hiking, biking, or more craft brews!

Another sure sign of LOVE can be found at Cardinal Point Winery. Wine barrels are intricately redesigned via cutouts and splits to spell the “L” word, and there’s plenty of space for you to stand in front of it with your wildest friends and take a picture or ten. LOVE is literally in the air at Veritas Vineyard and Winery. Thousands upon thousands of corks take the shape of “LOVE” above the bar, and your photography skills will take shape while you taste delicious and refreshing Veritas wines.

There’s some cold love over at The Ski Barn in Wintergreen- where LOVE is spelled out colorfully in ski and snowboard equipment. Snow bunnies and boarders alike are sure to fill their Instagram feeds with this one! If you aren’t getting off Route 29, you’ll still have a chance at capturing a little LOVE in Nelson, so don’t worry. Virginia Distillery Company is safely tucked away from the roar of traffic on route 29, but their LOVEWork sign is easy to see. Their Distillery logo is featured in the work, while barrel staves and a barrel head finish up the four-letter word. Also along Route 29 is Wood Ridge Farm Brewery with their LOVEwork made from wood and vines from the farm, where all the building materials for the farm structures were sourced.  It may be the largest LOVEWork in Virginia! In Schuyler, the one of the newest LOVEwork can be found between the Walton Hamner House and John and Olivia’s Bed and Breakfast. In Arrington, there is LOVE in the business park at Blue Mountain Barrel House.

The newest LOVEwork is in heart of the County, the village of LOVingston!  Created by the artisans at the HeART of Nelson Artisan Collective, this work of art was inspired by and embodies the natural beauty that surrounds its residents and visitors each day.

Because the beautiful landscape proves is the perfect backdrop for LOVEworks, Nelson is a great place to take photographs! Add some Nelson LOVE to your photos this year!
