The weather was clear and sunny and freezing cold, but the wine tasting rooms were warm. For this "Wine Saturday" I visited Fox Meadow Winery in Linden, VA. You have to drive up a mountain to get there, but the view is worth it. I am always happy to see the vine rows, though they are currently twiggy and leafless. They were offering not only tastings but a combo, a bowl of rich chili, a bread roll, and a glass of wine. I got this with their "Cabernet Franc Reserve" and drew while I sipped and ate. These blue hills are the view from the wine lodge. The wood stove kept all us wine sippers well-warmed.
