Not far outside of Radford, on Childress Road, sits Attimo Winery, a pleasant place to stop on a weekend drive. The winery, owned by Melissa and Rik Obiso, was started in 2006. Nestled among houses are 11 acres of young grape vines striving to become a vineyard. Some of the vines produced grapes in 2010, and new vines are planted each year.
But our visits to Attimo were to taste some of the food offered by Iandoli’s, the kitchen inside the wine shop. Iandoli’s offers cafe fare from a seasonal menu, as well as catering for private events.
The wine shop is dominated by a large tasting bar. Modern tables and chairs have a few folding card tables among them to accommodate visitors. The shop sports wine accessories and racks of bottled wine under a high ceiling, while large windows allow a view of the vineyard and the spacious porch.
