The weekend has been beautiful thus far. After a beautiful Friday afternoon & Saturday, Sunday promise to be more of the same! Sounds like a great time to get out and go taste some wine! Above, Alexandra Heilbronner, shows off a few of the wines at Delfosse Winery & Vineyard in Faber just off Route 29 at Hickory Creek Road. If you’ve never dropped in at Delfosse, you’ve gotta go there. Beautiful terraced vineyards on the mountainsides surround the grounds. It is a breathtaking place to go sit outside and try out the wines. Mmmmm, maybe chilled like, 2005 Chardonnay Reserve, it’s one of my favorites! And perfect weather this weekend for it! Tell Claude, Alex, and the crew we say howdy!

You won’t be able to special order weather better than this weekend’s. Temperatures continue be in the lower 80’s with cool northerly winds. It’s just about as perfect as you can get. It was very nice overnight Friday into Saturday morning and Sunday, and cool. Nice enough to shut off the air and raise the windows.
