Winchester Virginia and Rice Tire, a perfect match
Once known as the shuttlecock of the American Confederacy, Winchester Virginia changed from Union control to Confederate control over 70 times during the war between the states.
Home to Rice Tire and Founded in 1752, almost 3 decades before the signing of the declaration of Independence, Winchester was the fourth city to get a charter in the state of Virginia making it one of the pillars of early American society and later, a stronghold of historic events. You can find much more at Encyclopedia Virginia with a detail that brings the entire era to life.
Modern day Winchester however is a far cry from the war torn Shenandoah Valley strategic chess piece that it once was. Today, it’s a beautiful and vibrant city that’s peaceful and welcoming and built around the old vestiges of its historic self.
Old Town Winchester is a centerpiece for shopping, dining, various city attractions and entertainment. As the city’s gathering place for residents and visitors alike the 250 year old architecture or downtown Winchester is something special that’s on full display in the walking mall. Live music, street artists, shopping, food, and fun for all ages are all things you’ll find here.
With tons of things to do, there are a few things not to be missed when visiting or just spending the day. The Shenandoah Spirits Trailconnects the local wineries, craft breweries, distilleries, and our personal favorite the Cideries (or cider houses). For beer and ale lovers, some of the award winning craft brewers like Winchester Brew works offer their spin on century’s old local favorites infused with the local flavors of peaches and apricots. On the sweeter side but certainly no tamer, Winchester Ciderworks produces hard ciders with names like “Malice” and Va-Ginga”. The amazing libations that have historical reference to the area of hundreds of years are a fantastic testament to the city and it’s story.
