Charlottesville Revisited

I had to share the rest of my Charlottesville pictures with you.  I just love it there.  Whenever I'm there, I think of Thomas Jefferson and beautiful Monticello.  There are loads of things to do there besides the wineries (but they're GREAT).  If you ever get a chance to visit, you won't be disappointed.  And if you get a chance to visit in the fall, it's even more beautiful than ever.

These photos were all taken at White Hall.  This was our first stop on Saturday.  Their award-winning wine was on display in their tasting room.

 The view from the tasting room at Pollak Winery.  Would you love to wake up to this every single day?  I'd love it. 

 The gang bellied up to the bar!

Last but not least, we ended up our weekend at beautiful Veritas in Afton, Virginia.  "Veritas" means truth, and their wines are truly the best of their vineyard.  They have won many awards.  We always end up here because of the gorgeous scenery.  They have a huge deck with picnic tables, and we pack in our lunch and enjoy it with one of their outstanding wines.    


 Just some of the amazing views.  I painted this barn as a gift to my daughter for her 10th anniversary.  

My impression

 I'd love to imagine this is the road to my house.

Oh Genny, I love Charlottesville and surrounding areas too. I work a lot in Virginia and traverse this wonderful state a great deal. I love it. You captured some amazing photos here. I never get to have any fun and would love to try some of the wineries. The buildings and views are breathtaking. I love that magical road too. You family is beautiful and it looks like a great deal of fun to hang with you all. Perhaps we can belly up to the bar together sometime when I work that way in the future :)
Off to read some more :)
