Oh hey there wiiiiiiine… found ya!!!
This past weekend we spent a lovely weekend
tasting all the wine there ever was in Charlottesville, eating some awesome food and leaving town with just a “few” vino souveneirs…
If you ever get a chance to visit the Charlottesville area I’d highly recommend trying some of the same!
I’ll consider this a weekend
Here are some highlights!
I know someone who already can’t wait for another round of their Petit Verdot, but until then this Chardonnay Reserve will have to do, deelish!
Right down the “street”
gravel mountain road, this new-to-me no-frills wine stop has a generous wine tasting & some pretty awesome boxed VA wine.
I know, boxed wine? But a good cab franc that will last for 2 months once opened and only costs $28 (a box has 4 bottles people, f-o-u-r bottles!) was something I just couldn’t say no to.
Can’t help but smile after a 13 wine tasting now can ya?!
I mean, this view. How lucky are we to live in such a gorgeous state? And get to see THIS while sipping on delicious wine? Their new Painted Red was a fave.
Sippin’ in style. Loved how they started the tasting with a series of three sparkling vinos. Oh and served us a delicious cheddar breadstick warm outta the oven. These folks know the way to my heart
Sparkly that was so tasty that it may have not made it back to Richmond with us. So yea. That happened haha.
Couldn’t believe that one of my favorites here was a Reisling. Not too sweet and oh so lovely!
This tangy cocktail with vodka, lime & mint simple syrup was the perfect contrast to some amazing dishes unlike I’d ever had before.
Kale tortellini w/ sambal brown butter and Pulled pork tacos w/ wasabi slaw. I mean, just yes!
There was also a stop at Blue Light Grill which had a really fun swanky ambiance and delicious prosecco, because clearly I had to put all my newfound wine knowledge to good use.
Hope y’all had a wonderful weekend too!
