October is a great time to enjoy the fall weather, wineries, and wines. There are fewer crowds and it’s easy to just sit back and relax. We wined the whole month, it was more fun than whining.
We started the month in the North Carolina mountains, home to several of the states great wineries. We stayed at Roaring River Vineyards, enjoying a lovely room right by the river. Not only do they have a winery but they also have a really good restaurant, Chez Josephine. We discovered a new winery nearby with really good wines, Jones von Drehle Vineyards and Winery. Of course, we visited one of our favorite wineries, Raffaldini Vineyards and Winery.
Back home in Kentucky, we enjoyed a lunch and a dinner at Fuego Grill, at Chrisman Mill Vineyards and Winery. The food and wine were excellent as were the cocktails made with rum from the Hummingbird Ridge Distillery. We enjoyed two evenings of music and wine at Brianza Gardens Vineyard and Winery, as well as an afternoon of barrel tasting. Last, but not least, Halloween was such a rainy, blustery day, it seemed like a great day for lunch and wine at Prodigy Vineyards and Winery. It was a good decision.
November is here and we’re looking forward to more wineries and wine. Retirement is so much fun!by admin
