Aspen Dale in Springtime
It's finally Springtime and the golden-green new leaves are emerging. I made another "Wine Saturday" visit to Aspen Dale Winery at the Barn, one of my all-time favorites in Northern Virginia. I sampled their fare and bought myself a treat: a bottle of their delicious red blend colorfully titled "Rockawalkin'", and one of their summer sausages made with pheasant meat. The weather was just right and I was able to draw outdoors. Like most wineries in Virginia, Aspen Dale is family-run and I always enjoy their warm hospitality.
