Three couples spent the weekend of November 15th-17th with Carolyn and Bob in their place at the foot of Monticello. After an amazing breakfast prepared by Jenny, the British cook, Bob loaded us in to his wine tour van and took the six of us to wineries the rest of the day. We stopped at some beautiful places and picnicked at outdoor tables on the wonderful lunch he'd brought for us. We also got a taste of history as Bob is well versed in the local lore surrounding many of the properties we saw. This is a great way to see everything without worrying about getting lost , or have a few too many wines and getting behind the wheel.
We had diner Saturday night at Keswick hall. Bob knows the wine steward there and set this up for us in advance. A truly amazing venue. Just Google it and see for yourself.
Our perfect weekend concluded with another fine breakfast from Jenny and we were off on our journey back to reality.
