At last mother nature is not up to her pranks this weekend, we are due a nice and sunny Saturday and Sunday. The trend I have come accustomed to since my short stay here in Northern VA is nice weather Monday thru Friday, and showers on the weekend, returning with a sunny Monday. Like most I work a regular 9-5 (actually 7-3) so I welcome a nice and sunny weekend. There is a lot going on this weekend, below are just a few events in Loudoun County:
April 29 - Smooth Jazz Concert at Chrysalis Vineyards. This should be a very nice event and they have very good wines here. If you have a sweet tooth be sure to enjoy a glass of their Petite Manseng. ( Tropical, fruity, aromatic and yes sweet ! )
April 29-30 – Last weekend to enjoy homemade soup and bread at Windham Winery. Although their dessert wine does not pair with soup, be sure to try their Raspberry Merlot … you’re either gonna love it or like it ! ($5 fee)
April 30 – Barrel Tasting at Hillsborough Cellars. This will include a tasting of their evolving wines prior to being put into their next blends, along with a seminar on wine aging and blending. Reservations required ($20 fee).
Have a wonderful weekend, sip and enjoy !
