Sunday Funday: Wine Edition

This past weekend was packed and although I got no laundry done and had to go grocery shopping yesterday evening, it was definitely worth it. I spent Sunday on a wine tour with some gals from the Junior League, not only was it a great day but I totally forgot that one of my 101 in 1001 items was to visit three new wineries in Virginia. We went to four, so check and check!

I've only seen a few wineries so far and enjoyed that these are all in the Charlottesville area which is just around an hour away from us. We visited Delfosse, Pippin Hill, Blenheim and Trump. I think my favorites were Pippin Hill and Blenheim, but we didn't really get to explore the outside area of Trump which also looked amazing. I would love to go back with a picnic lunch, buy a bottle of wine and just enjoy the afternoon at one of these spaces. The weather was absolutely perfect on Sunday so we were able to soak in the beautiful views at each place.

Have you visited any wineries in Virginia? Although I hit my goal of three (maybe I should have made it bigger?) I am continuing to visit as many as possible while we live here. Where you have been? What's your favorite place?
