Nelson County, Virginia
Mother Nature has been perfect for the start of the Labor Day weekend. Saturday was a fantastic day filled with all sorts of fun events across Nelson County. Down at Wintergreen Winery, the annual Romp, Stomp and Chomp got underway with afternoon temps in the upper 70’s to near 80°. Didn’t make it on Saturday? Not to worry, they do it all again on Sunday.

Head up about 3000 feet or so to Wintergreen Resort and the cool mountain air was a perfect setting the the 2010 International Wine Festival put on by Wintergreen Performing Arts. Over 50 wines from Australia, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, South Africa, California, and, of course, Virginia were on hand for the tasting!
