It was a great fun filled weekend. We picked a direction (this time South) and decided to visit Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
Our stay in Only on Friday night was interest to say the least – but everything got better Saturday. After weeks of heat it finally decided to rain. Not much better than visiting wineries on a rainy day!
We started by visiting the Chatham Vineyards. They had wine fermenting in Oak Barrels for show and cases of wine that was waiting to be shipped. The whole room was climate controlled – she said they strive to keep it about 60 degrees so it was nice and chilly. The wines were excellent! They had a small selection, maybe 5 or 6 different type to choose from, but every one was better than the last! I especially enjoyed their Cabernet Franc (of course we bought a bottle)
We left there, admiring their vineyards and visited a few more, but the bar was already set and while their servers were full of personality, their wine just wasn’t right for us LOL
As we headed back toward home we took a few detours. We went to Crisfeild, Maryland. What a cute little town and guess what? They’ll be having a wine festival on July 31 – LOL Who knew! They had lovely views from the dock of the Chesapeake Bay and all their street signs had cute red crabs on them (it was like the theme for the town)
Then the rain picked up as we headed more north – something we really needed. I even heard there were streets closed for flooding in St. Micheal’s, Maryland.
Have an Excellent Sunday Evening Everyone!
