Piccione Vineyards

Piccione VineyardsPiccione Vineyards is known for having one of the most spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from a far, located up a semi steep incline, overlooking a field of beautiful vines. Piccione Vineyards has become a popular destination in the Swan Creek area, and rightfully so!

Founded in 2010 by William Piccione and his 2 sons, and coming from strong Sicilian roots, William had fond memories of watching his grandfather make wine and wanted to create that experience, with his award-winning wines and amazing atmosphere, He did just that!

Piccione recently added a new 14,000sq. ft. building called “La Collina” (meaning Hill) with a tasting room, event hall, library, courtyard, bridal suite, underground barrel room and more.

Grab a bottle, glass or flight (choose 4 wines, the Frose` slushie is great to sip on a warm day) and sit on the patio to enjoy the view! Piccione is also pet friendly, family oriented, and open daily (with the exception of some major holidays), and a fun knowledgeable staff, it is definitely a great place to visit! Check out their event calendar for live music and food truck dates. Upcoming Events | Piccione Vineyards

Cooking at Camp

S’mores Popcorn
Smores PopcornIngredients

  • 1 bag popcorn, popped (I use the light butter kind)
  • 4 oz white candy bark (or white chocolate chips)
  • 1.5 c mini semisweet or milk chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 c mini marshmallows
  • 1 c graham cracker pieces (about 3-4 graham crackers)


  1. Melt the white candy bark in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave it for about 45 seconds, stir, and repeat until fully melted.
  2. Put the popped popcorn into a large mixing bowl, doing your best to avoid pouring unpopped kernels into the bowl.
  3. Drizzle some of the melted candy bark onto the popcorn, stir, and continue drizzling and stirring until the popcorn is evenly coated.
  4. Line a cookie sheet with foil and pour the candied popcorn onto the foil. Spread it out with the spoon/spatula.
  5. Next, melt 3/4 of a cup of chocolate chips using the same method you used when you melted the candy bark.
  6. Once melted, evenly drizzle the chocolate onto the popcorn.
  7. Pour on some of the graham crackers and marshmallows – maybe about half of each – and toss everything together with a spoon/spatula on the pan.
