Join us on the first ever Shenandoah Caverns Discovery Tour! You'll step back in time to when The Southern Railway line was being built through Shenandoah County.

Farmer Abraham Neff agreed to let the railway quarry limestone from his property right beside the railroad, this property is now known as Shenandoah Caverns.

One Sunday, while the workers were away, Abraham’s sons were playing in the quarry when they felt cool air rising from a hole in the ground. They ran home to collect ropes and candles and scrambled down a 275 foot twisting and winding shaft.

At the bottom they discovered a huge, dark room, full of stalactites, stalagmites and flowstone and this is where your tour will begin.

Guests will follow one of Abraham Neff's sons through the caverns by lantern and candle light. Listen to the spectacular story of two boys discovering one of the most magical natural wonders of Virginia.

Four Life is Hard Cider tastings will be accompanied by heavy hors d'oeuvres prepared by Chef Joseph Del Puppo.

The Winery at Kindred Pointe is located at 3575 Conicville Rd, Mt Jackson, VA and open Saturdays and Sundays 12pm-6pm. They have a wonderful selection of wines and craft ciders available by the glass, pitcher and growler.

Tickets are limited to 20 people per tour, masks are required unless eating or drinking.
