This time we headed to our favorite winery here in Northern Virginia.
There is SO much that I like with this place. Actually, even the wine! Virginia wines are tricky. We have loads and loads of vineyards around here, but the wine is, at its best "so-so".
But, it seems like the wineries learn from their mistakes, and the wine at some of these wineries ARE getting a lot better than they used to be!
Bluemont is beautiful!!
It is in a perfect location, maybe 45 minutes by car from my house.
The winery is placed high up on a hill, overlooking farms, mountains, towns, woods, creeks, fields etc.
In the far distance one can see both Reston Town Center and Tysons Corner. And yes, on a clear day it is said that you can see all the way to DC.
The view from where I am sitting at this place is a killer!
I love hanging on one of the decks with a bottle of wine, and a plate of goodies. It seems as if I have this urge to visit Bluemont once, or twice, a year.
So, yes, we were there Sunday. Susanna and Marc were with us as well, very nice.
Wine with friends is so good!
We all had such a nice and peaceful afternoon sipping wine, talking and eating.
And, of course, photographing.
I love living in Virginia Wine Country. I love the fact that we have so very many wineries just around the corner.
It is a perfect fall-outing. Sure, most wineries are open all year, but for me visiting a vineyard is truly a fall thing.
We will visit another winery, or two, before December rolls around the corner.
Oh my how autumn flies...
NO, NO this is NOT a sponsored post (one wishes, haha).
The view is so stunning!!
And some grapes are still growing. A tasted a few, very sweet!
There are several places around this winery where you can enjoy your wine.
