hope you all had a fabulous weekend! i had an amazing time in jersey and can't wait to tell you all about it :D
one of the great things about living in the dc/northern virginia area is our prime access to the amazing wineries. and amazing wineries mean amazing wine festivals!
about two weeks ago we attended the vintage virginia wine festival, one of the largest in the area, and it was a blast! it was our first time there and had one of the best days of summer thus far! when we first heard about the festival we were a bit hesitant to go only because it's located a good 45 minutes away. so trying to figure out transportation was tiresome. UNTIL! they announced shuttle service to and from the festival which was located one block from our apartment! oh yea! everyone who signed up for the shuttle met at a local bar at 9am where they served us mimosas and breakfast. so we started our day drinking rather early :D
the weather was amazing and there were endless rows of tents. out of the 10 tents there, we probably made it to about three. but that was okay because we tried some amazing wines! the most interesting was a jalepeno-base wine. so interesting! the place was overflowing with crowds but we never had to wait more than 3 minutes to get a tasting. as soon as we found the wine that we liked, we bought a few bottles, found an open grassy area, plopped down with some gyros and wine and enjoyed the music. i already can't wait to go back next year!
how was your weekend?!
