Dinner was fantastic!
The tour was a bit disappointing (literally, 5 minutes long and we saw one room with the barrels – I was thinking the tour would at least be 30 minutes?), but we had fun at the tasting!
We got to try 10 of their wines, and we loved almost all of them. The tasting room was pretty busy when we were in there, and there wasn’t much room to move around so no pictures.
But dinner was delicious.
The temperature was perfect, but it was really hazy (like it always is in this area, hence the “blue ridge”).
I loved the entrance to the restaurant! Like entering the Secret Garden.
We had a starter of some quick-pickled veggies with cucumber, yellow squash, carrots, tomatoes, and green beans. The beans were the best! Still crispy, and I loved the pickling spices on them. I guess they were like a fast version of dilly beans?
I had a glass of their Angel Chardonnay with my meal – the perfect match with my Caesar salad and Chicken Saltimbocca.
Nick had their house salad and a bbq spiced ribeye with some mashed potatoes that tasted like macaroni and cheese!
Sadly, I didn’t get pictures of our dessert (it was dark by that time), but they were delicious! We split a flourless chocolate torte (super rich) and wild strawberry gelato with a pecan praline crunch and mint oil.
It was a great way to celebrate 6 years of marriage and the start of year #7.
We’ve got a cookout tonight with some friends, so I’ve got laundry going, beans cooking on the stove, and I still have to make my
strawberry rhubarb crumble to take with us.
Should be fun!
