#75. Arrington

I’ve been to Arrington Vineyards numerous times, but had never had the chance to take out-of-town friends or family. So I put it on my 101 list! My parents were in town last weekend so I thought it would be a nice relaxing break in our busy scheduled weekend. We drove the 30ish minutes south of town, and it rained the whole way down. Luckily, not even kidding, as we pulled onto the road the vineyard is on, it stopped raining and the sun came out! We even got lucky enough to get a parking spot at the top of the hill right next to the building!

We claimed a picnic table and took out our wonderful spread of cheese/crackers, sandwiches, and fruit. And after only about a 30 minute wait, we were called in for our wine tasting! You choose 4 wines from the list to try. I tried 2 whites, 1 red, and a dessert wine. Both dessert wine options, blackberry and raspberry, are served with a chocolate truffle, which they make at Arrington. Delicious.

We bought 2 bottles and returned to our table to enjoy the beautiful weather, good food and wine, and company of family and friends!
