Mike and Bev Davis (Ayewash) are part owners of a winery in Virginia - The Winery at La Grange. They hosted a tour of the winery, followed by a wine tasting.
The crews from 15 boats were on hand for the tasting:
The weather didn't cooperate, so after a short tour of the Manor House, everyone headed inside for the Barrel Room for a taste of twelve wines, from Pinot Gris to Meritage to Snort (yes, Snort).
Following the tasting, the group headed to Carmello's Restaurant in Old Town Manassas for a great dinner...and of course, more wine!
