#49. Beachaven

Leave a comment

I love wine – so it’s only fitting that I have multiple wineries on my 101 list. This past weekend, we braved the record high temperatures and drove the 45 minutes to Clarksville, TN to visit Beachaven Winery. It is a beautiful vineyard (maybe ignoring the lovely view of I-65), with rose bushes blooming at the end of each row.

We took a tour and they explained the process of making wine – which I had never heard before – and also showed us the champagne cellar and explained that process! Although it was a little hurried through the outdoor parts, it was really interesting! We also did a tasting – able to taste whatever wines you wanted. They have a pretty large selection of wines – whites, reds, fruit wines, and dessert wines. I bought a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc since I drink more whites in the summer. Since it’s hot. Have you deduced yet that it is HOT here? 🙂
