May Sun + Va. Wine Country + 951 feet = Good Times!!

This past weekend, I checked out a relatively new winery in beautiful Virginia countryside, just an hour's drive outside of DC, called Bluemont Vineyard....and may I just say that the view was definitely worth the gorgeous drive. 
 It is  at an elevation of 951 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains with a 50 mile view .  On a clear day, you can even see the top of the Washington Monument! 

Each of their wines are named after farm animals, which I thought was cute, and because they have a working farm at the foot of the mountain.  Their wines were quite tasty. 
Looks like the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine....don'tcha think?

If you find yourself wandering in Northern Virginia's wine country, it would be a shame not to add Bluemont Vineyard to your trip.  I'm going back to try their dessert wines when they start bottling in June...especially their blackberry wine.  Mmm yummy!!

Let Me Introduce.....

My newest nephew, Gabriel "Gabe" David Esposito.  Isn't he just the cutest?!? :)  Born 4/23/10 as I was flying out to Florida for work....so I had to wait several days to meet him.  I took this pic the day he and I finally got introduced.  Multiple photos and videos to follow. ;)
