I’m not much of a wine drinker in that I know anything about wines or how to pronounce any of them, but I will gladly do a wine tasting or drink an entire bottle of whatever white or pink wine you put in front of me. A friend of ours was celebrating her 30th birthday so Saturday was spent in Charlottesville on (my first!) winery tour – charter bus and all – and we lucked out with perfect weather after a long and rainy week. I’m not big on the summer heat but I love walking around barefoot, drinking wine, and being outside so this was perfect.
Our first stop was Veritas which was beautiful and I wanted to steal the bucket of peonies that were set out for a wedding later in the day. We weren’t here very long after our tasting (which I thought was delicious) so I definitely want to go back soon. Our second and last stop of the day was King Family Vineyards, where we met Sunshine the polo-playing horse and set up a picnic, complete with Chick-fil-a nuggets and wine. We went with a giant group, including a ton of coworkers, and it was a lot of fun but the day went by so fast. In my head, it would be fun to plan a day in Charlottesville to go hiking and finish up at a winery, but I know that hiking leaves me sweaty and tired so its probably not ideal and I guess I’ll have to convince someone (hi, boyfriend!) to take a couple trips back to Charlottesville in the near future.
The complete opposite of yesterday, today has mostly been spent on the couch and its slow days like this that make me happy that I have someone to lay around doing nothing with (until basketball starts at 8 tonight! Woo hoo! Go Warriors :))
