By now, besides fashion you know I like wine. We visited one of the 75 nearest wineries with my parents when they visited last weekend. An easy drive, as well as a pleasant one, North Carolina lines it’s roads at times with yellow fields of flowers, unlike some areas of Pennsylvania ,or dirt roads of the Carolinas, where potholes are more abundant on roadways than yellow petals. My parents were impressed with the large stone building, beautiful fountain and the large surrounding grounds with gazebos, large vineyard, and scenery. We ate at the Bistro, and there were many sumpscious dishes to choose from. I picked crusted grouper with creamed spinach, some cornbread, and of course a wine pairing, called 3 red, which was to my liking, as it was a dry, somewhat fruity wine. After eating, we did some wine tasting, my husband and I the dry, my parents the sweet. Boy, I new they were in for some winces when they got to the Muscadine grape! Whew, is that sweet. I stay away from any syrupy dessert tasting wine, and enjoyed the pinot grigio, as well as their 3 blend, and chardoney. I know you are thinkin’ ” Where are my folks?” Well, we ended up exploring the grounds as they did, so I know my dad got pictures as well. Overall, it was a lovely day.
My outfit was another of my black lace skirts via Ann Taylor, with peplum top as a staple. I needed some blue in the wardrobe, so bought this blue and mint green necklace at Charming Charlies, a new store near us, where teenage girls and older ladies alike, can feel like a kid in a candy store when it comes to accessories. My shoes you are familiar with , and my Brahmin added color matching the necklace I was wearing, in addition to some texture from the bag
Have a Great day!
