After a very nice couple of days with friends in central-western Virginia, I returned home while including a visit to a winery, of course. Cave Ridge Vineyard is hidden away on Shenandoah Valley slopes, in a rural area of extreme beauty. The grapes are almost ready to pick now. I sampled a good number of wines and especially liked their reds. Cave Ridge is too far away for me to make a day trip visit as I do with the Northern Virginia wineries, so I will have to go there on my longer excursions. This drawing depicts one of their wine patios.
