Wine-tasting tour

On Saturday, I was fortunate enough to take part in a wine-tasting tour to celebrate the birthdays of two friends.

We visited four wineries along the Frederick Wine Trail.

The day was filled with laughter, beautiful scenery, and lots of wine-tasting. It was quite a lovely time!

We had fun learning about the different kinds of wine. My favorite winery was Linganore Winecellars, set on 70 acres of lush estate vineyards. It was so gorgeous, and the wines were amazing. If you are ever in the area, definitely check it out!

I snapped some shots of the surrounding area.

The countryside around Linganore Winecellars was absolutely breathtaking.

(Did I mention we are thinking of making this an annual tradition? 'Cause we are.)

Fun! Nice pictures! Those look like morning glories or nasturtiums?... I was surprised by how many blooming flowers I saw over the weekend. Being new to DC, I don't know if that's normal for November.

Yes, I think they are morning glories, but I wasn't sure. It does seem like there's a fair amount of flowers still in bloom. I'm not sure if I just haven't noticed in the past or if we're having an unusual year!

Oh, I love winery tours! I did one with some friends back in August, it was so much fun! Although admittedly, I did fall asleep in the backseat of the car on the way home! You should definitely make it an annual thing! I'm looking forward to doing another one in the summer months.
