Wine Walk

Today I ended up doing my walking late in the evening and since it was dark, I walked in the building. We participated in an online wine chat about Virginia wine in the evening. During the day I spent making my Halloween costume. I’ll post a picture of it on the weekend. But I bought a sewing machine to do the work. I taught myself how to use the machine and make my costume. Anyway, because of all that, the walk was in the evening. I walked 1.91 miles. I was just too tired to go any further but I did get the 30 minutes of exercise done.

Walk Free Sunday

This morning we got up really early and went to Gray Ghost Vineyards to help harvest Chardonnay grapes. It was a huge crop! We were very tired but had a good time. Because of that I didn’t do any walking. I was exhausted when we were finished. I considered that my workout for the day. Here is what the grapes looked like that we harvested.

We Clean Up Nice

This evening we went to a vertical wine tasting at Gray Ghost Vineyards in Amissville, Virginia. Gray Ghost is one of our favorite wineries. Each year they have a vertical wine tasting event. A vertical wine tasting is where you taste the same wine from different vintages. We tasted the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve from the 02, 04, 06, 08, and 10 vintages. It’s black tie optional. We always go with the option. We had a great time of course.
