Set in Our Waverly Ways.

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to pour fantastic wines at Piedmont Vineyards. The vineyard is located on the pre-Revolutionary estate, “Waverly”, three miles south of Middleburg, Virginia. The owner was out-of-town and asked my honey for some helping hands in the tasting room. Sure, I’ll join you! I’d love to! Let’s go! It was a gorgeous day and a busy one in fact. I’ve been many times before and posted about my outing and visit there last Fall. I thought I would have some time to snap photos of the day but was so busy counting cash, running Visa cards, and pouring the first tastes of Hunt Country Chardonnay (my personal favorite at Piedmont). I found a few short minutes here and there to capture the day. Cheers!

Just one hour in the car and you’re there. An afternoon in Virginia’s Hunt Country. Welcome to lovely Middleburg. I spent the last part of Sunday basking in the sun and enjoying the delicious wine of Piedmont Vineyards, just up the road from quaint and adorable downtown Middleburg. I had the chance to share a few bottles of wine with the owners and friends around great table conversation on this gorgeous pre-Revolutionary estate, also known as Waverly. I took to their Chardonnay which is fermented in stainless steel tanks. I love Sauvignons and Pinot Grigio white wines due to the refreshing taste that comes from being fermented in metal tanks – not wooden barrels. Thanks for the fun Peidmont! Oh, I brought my camera of course. Enjoy some of my shots!
