My wine destination this Saturday, "Winding Road Cellars," is only a month or so old, though their preparations and vineyards have been going on for years. Their beautiful new wine lodge is painted in a wine-dark red and the flowers on their porch are also in winey purple colors. This is a family-run place, as are most of Virginia's wineries, and they make you feel at home. The wine list was good, especially their Chambourcin. I sat on the porch with my art stuff and attracted a lot of attention from wine-sippers. I definitely want to go back to this place which is a haven of agricultural peacefulness.
