We spent the day with great friends, Melissa and James, in the wine country of Virginia visiting the following wineries: Chrysalis, Swedenburg and Piedmont. We tasted some incredible wines, but the winner for me was Sarah's Patio Red at Chrysalis. We all shared a bottle of this chilled semi-sweet red over a lovely picnic next to a pond and rolling green hills. I was reminded what a gorgeous state we live in!
Even Henry tried a few and settled on a lovely white.
We spent some time at each winery, appreciating the different wines and atmospheres. Swedenburg even had a Mothers' Day chocolate fountain!
After our wine tasting was finished, we all had dinner together in Middleburg--cute little town!--and then headed home, exhausted, but so happy with our lovely day.
