So one Sunday afternoon a month or so ago we decided to search for a new winery - living so close to Virginia, that's a pretty easy task. And sure enough I found this one -
It was up in the woods, just a little =) and the road was a little steep...
But we made it!
And once inside could clearly see it was a combination of art and wine -
The owners are husband and wife. They designed the entire building and grounds. She is an artist. Beautiful!
We definitely agreed Arterra was a 'good find' and one we will visit again. It is located in Delaplane just off 17 (yes, the road you have to go 45 mph or else). There are several in that area so make a day of it!
Just a few miles away is one that we have visited once and loved everything about it. The view -
The wine -
The two sisters that kept things cleaned up (and the owners were super friendly too)
A lovely building to hang out when it's too hot or too cold -
The music -
Even Jill - She's a beauty.
I think one of the requirements for a winery is that it has to have a perfect spot to see the sunset. Ah ha!
We even finished up having dinner at one of our favorite locals -
That about covers our day last month. Fun times. Good people. Good food. Yep - two great wineries.
