Vint Hill wine table
On "Wine Sunday" the Wine Team visited one of the most unusual wineries in the area. "Vint Hill" is a nicely restored old government laboratory from the World War 2 - Cold War era. A geological quirk allowed listeners (spies, that is) to hear unencrypted radio transmissions from Europe and beyond. The workers at this listening post were disguised as farm workers. At Vint Hill you can see relics of that era with photos, old wartime supplies, and captions. And they also have a wine center where you can taste vintages made on the "campus" and eat cheese and goodies. They even have a facility where would-be winemakers can rent gear and try their own hand. The image here is of our table with wine, cheese and bread wrappers, and a dagger to go with the cloak.
