Wine Tasting

The Winery at La Grange, March 28

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:

  • Bev and Mike Davis, Ayewash
  • Lucia Casale and Bob Klimek, Lucia
  • Jeanne and Gerry Helldorfer, Ragtime
  • Vicky and Al Lohman, Rhiannon
  • Larry, Carol, Jennifer, John, Holly and Brian Logan, Surprise
  • Mary Ann and Don McBride, Coelumar
  • Betty and John McElderry, Andiamo
  • Claire and Rich Miller, Viewfinder
  • Sallie Moore and Lynn Dievendorf, Breezing Up
  • Maureen and Glen Nemecek, Sevilla
  • Jaye Sampson and David Dobbins, Scarlett
  • Debbie Smith and Mike Vacarro, Resolve
  • Lura Wharton and Roy Gillim, Troubador
  • Kim Wolkins and Brian Arnentrout, Eos
  • Marie and Mike Yates, Prego

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!

 

(Thanks to Al Lohman for taking the pictures.)
