A fine combination . . . arrive before dinner for a wine-tasting and tour of the property hosted by Janet (their own wine, of course), then a couple minutes to town for dinner. We enjoyed the city-view from the second story of their old, completely rebuilt and restyled farmhouse.
It was great to sit at the farm-kitchen counter and hear Janet's stories (and look at pictures)of how they brought the old place back to life after twenty years of abandonment and neglect. Even physically moved the old barn to improve the overall house-winery arrangement.
Breakfast included home-made preserves, etc. from the farm -- no breakfast wines, 'though. After that, a brisk walk down their country road got us in the mood to tackle the day.
