What a group!

About a year ago we planned a wine trail 'limo' style only for snow and ice to cause a 'reschedule'. And after many, many months the day finally came. The fourteen of us hit the trail 'party bus' style.

We couldn't have asked for better weather.

Our first stop was Sunset Hills where the group 'tasted', we inducted two new Estate Club members and then shared some vino before heading to the next stop.

8 Chains North, it was! This is only the 2nd time we have been there and we certainly weren't disappointed. We were welcomed by the tasting manager and the group loved their wines.

It was warm enough to sit outside where we shared some wine, laughter and stories.

Then we headed over the mountain to Bluemont. The Fall colors are pretty much gone but it is still breath taking to stand atop the mountain and take in the view.

Our fourth and final stop was planned to be Barrel Oak. Hmmmm once we got there, the owner wasn't quite having a good day and wouldn't let us in. They were turning groups away. Not quite exactly why but after a few words we hit the bus and headed back over the mountain, calling a few places that just might still be open. Yep, we hit Notaviva, they were open til 8. We loved this quaint place and our tasting guide -

Music was playing and they were happy to see us. This is definitely a place we'll visit again. And, it's very close to our home.

Needless to say, we had a great time and hope everyone else did as well.
