Mr. E'ville and I were simply running to a favorite orchard for peaches. By the end of that drive we visited two wineries, sampled a few good bottles, polished off a dozen oysters, and enveloped ourselves in the therapeutic Monticello Wine Trail scenery. These door photos I took at the newly re-located Trump Winerytasting room. It is on the same winery property just across the road from their old location with even more expansive views. What a fun, relaxing, unexpected Sunday gift to ourselves.
These oversized black and white doors, converted to black and white, greeted us when we arrived at the Grand Hall. The first doors remind me of barn doors. The second glass double doors promised something wonderful on the other side.
And wonderful it was. Before entering the tasting room, we ordered up a dozen oysters from a visiting vendor, Salty Bottom Blue, of the Chesapeake Bay. They were delicious and worth the 45 minute wait. Once inside the expansive, bustling tasting room, we perused the gift shop leading us to one of two bars where we selected our flight. We spent the next two hours on the lawn catching up with ourselves bathed in bucolic serenity.
I do love my scenic, history-rich spot on the globe and need to make time for investigating and exploring beyond our daily haunts. If you're looking for a nice glass of wine I recommend Trump's award winning Meritage, one of my favorites.
