It’s noon, somewhere right? Maybe not, but there’s always time for a wine tour. On my recent trip to Williamsburg Virginia, I made sure I had the opportunity to visit one of my favorite wineries. The Williamsburg winery expands across a 40-acre vineyard. The property also hosts multiple restaurants as well as a boutique hotel for guest who would like to extend their stay. The grounds of this vineyard are absolutely beautiful. I felt such a sense of calm and peace while walking the property. Now of course the wine I was drinking definitely helped with my mood but what can a girl say. I was floating on air and happy as can be. I am not a wine connoisseur by any means and I’m learning which wines my palette likes. As of right now I tend to go with the sweeter wines.
My absolute favorite wine made at WW is the Governor’s White. It is a Riesling wine which for me is the next best thing to Moscato. As I said I am not an avid wine drinker and I know referencing the two in the same sentence can be seen as blasphemy by some but what can I say. I’m learning over here! This wine is soooooo good as it has multiple flavors. You get touches of pineapple, passion fruit, plum, and strawberry. It’s very soft with fragrances of honey and hits your palette very smoothly. To me, it’s like the perfect summer afternoon wine that you can have with lunch with friends or even lounging by the pool. So of course, I had to purchase a few bottles for my trip home. I spent most of the day walking the property and just thinking about life and try to relax as much as possible. It’s funny, a afternoon stroll with a class of wine can do wonders to a girls mood. Sure did a number on me. XO
