Out the Hotel Window - Leesburg, VA

Out the Hotel in Leesburg, VA
August 14, 2021

 We are on the road again. It has been well over a year since I last spent a night in a hotel, but last night Chris and I spent the nightie Leesburg, Va. We are in Virginia for an overnight to sample wines from an area of Loudoun County.  There are many nice wineries in the county and we have been remiss in not visiting this area.

The three wineries we visited yesterday were unique and each offered their own unique interpretations. We enjoyed a new white wine based upon an Italian varietal. We enjoyed chatting with the wine makers and owners as we visited the wineries.

The day was hot and humid but the wines were enjoyable. I did chat with one owner who was serving wines in flights outside about how the heat changes the wines before they can be sampled and enjoyed. He agreed, but he is also a small vineyard with only about 10 acres under vine on an old dairy farm and does not seem to have the staff to support personal tastings.  As we were the only ones there, we did, however, receive personal tasting.

And all of this is out the hotel window. More tastings today.
