Wine Tasting at Three Feathers
Sunday May 26 dawned cloudy, cool and windy. Not an auspicious start for a day of guests and wine tasting outdoors considering that it had rained hard on Saturday! We pulled out the fire pit, made from the end of an old heating oil tank, and stacked up the firewood.
Cheerfully, by 11 AM the sun came out, the clouds blew away and our first guests were greeted with a picture perfect day in the gardens. From 11 to 5 we had a small but steady stream of visitors.
There were plenty of places to take a glass of wine to enjoy the views of the vineyard and gardens or sit by the fire. Many stayed for the afternoon.
The new Blanc de Noirs was a big hit and everyone went home with at least one bottle. Some drank one with the buffet of spiral cut ham, rolls and other delectables. We received many positive comments such as “refreshing”, and “pleasantly dry”, “mineral notes” and several said this wine reminded them of a Sauvignon Blanc.
All in all, it was a lovely day where we made new friends, met neighbors and signed up new Flight Club Members. Welcome to the Club Heather, Doug and Nina!
