Happy May Day! I hope you all enjoyed a beautiful spring weekend!
On Saturday, we headed out early in the morning to drive to the Frederick Wine Trail, (in Maryland) for a day of wine tasting. We had never been wine tasting before but were happily meeting up with friends who happen to be wine enthusiasts. We enjoyed driving down country roads and taking in the beautiful rolling farmland which surrounds the family-owned wineries.
The buds had sprouted and the fresh spring grape leaves had just begun to unfurl along the vines.
Time flew by as we chatted with our friends and enjoyed the wine tasting. After visiting the second winery we decided to stop for lunch and discovered a fabulous restaurant. If you're ever in the area, I would highly recommend Drover's Grill and Wine Co. - the crab cakes were excellent!
We visited four wineries in all, stopped in at a great bike shop to look at tandems, and then enjoyed another delicious meal in downtown Mt. Airy. When the day was over, it truly felt like we had taken a little vacation. (Thanks Pete and Kathy!) Oh, and we also came home with three bottles of wine. Cheers!
