In the fall of 2017, recently graduated with no real plans, I moved to Orange County, Virginia to work on a winery for harvest season. Having grown up in California, it was an entirely new lifestyle for me. I was struck by the beauty of a region that many people nowadays simply write off as a backwater or "Trump Country." For the Americans that live in urban areas these rural communities may seem just as foreign as any location outside our own borders, and can be just as rewarding to visit.
