Getting rained in at your favorite winery can be an interesting experience –good and bad. We were finishing up a tasting and getting ready to leave for the day when a major deluge decided to hit Virginia. The Virginians in the winery were rather excited since it had been a long hot summer without rain. Since we were on vacation, we decided to just make the best of a bad situation, order a glass of wine, and wait out the downpour.
Now comes the bad part; it wasn’t just rain. Hail started coming down quite hard. The noise sounded like a major storm was setting in. Thankfully it was short. However, when we left the winery to get in the car, we found quite a bit of hail damage to my Toyota Celica. When we got home, and had it appraised we needed a new hood and a complete paint job. A fun day turned out to have bad results. Thank goodness for the insurance. In the long run, the wine visit was worth it.This entry was posted in Adventures in Wining by admin
