It is one of the nations newest AmericanContinue reading “Weeken Escapde – Week 42 – Smallest Winery in the Country?”

Weekend Escapades – Week 41 – Bloody Mary Wine?

Saturday we started with a quick stop at CityScape Winery in Pelzer, S.C.  We had an alternative motive for the visit, more to come later. We enjoyed a glass of Müller Two-Goats (Müller Thurgau), and chatted with Deb. Pinot the Pig was dressed in his superhero costume and grazing out by the vineyard. We think the world ofContinue reading “Weekend Escapades – Week 41 – Bloody Mary Wine?”

CD Baker 2015 Cab Sauv Aged in Bourbon Barrels

As Jenni will attest, I’m a self confessed Cab Sauv snob. It is generally my opinion, a Cabernet Sauvignon is either good, or it is not. There seems to me absolutely no in-between. Cab Sauv is known to pair well with steak, or beef in general as a full-bodied red, high in tannins and alcoholContinue reading “CD Baker 2015 Cab Sauv Aged in Bourbon Barrels”

Weekend Escapade – Week 40

This past weekend started on Friday when Dennis and I went to Abbeville to go to a play at the Abbeville Opera House and we stayed at the Belmont Inn.

Children were playing in theContinue reading “This Weekend’s Escapade (Week 37 of 2017)”

This Weekend’s Escapade – Week 38 2017

Friday night Jenni and I visited the local Greek Festival. We enjoyed some good Greek food,  such as Dolmades which are wrapped in grape leaves and I enjoyed a Greek beer called Mythos. Our plan for Saturday was Cypress Bend Vineyards and Little River Vineyards. Due to some traffic issues we didn’t make it to Little River, so they’llContinue reading “This Weekend’s Escapade – Week 38 2017”
