Our first stop was Loudoun Valley Vineyards. It was smaller as a venue goes, but the tasting room had tons of spots to sit and the views were breathtaking!
I loved this wine label. The whites are all in this color scheme and the reds are purples and blues!
Mom thought the tiny bread sticks that looked like mini versions of French baguettes were hilarious.
After our tasting, we ordered a delicious pretzel and sat back at a table to enjoy the musical stylings of Jason Masi. He is my favorite local celebrity and is becoming a dear friend. In December of 2011 He helped Chris propose to Allison while Josh, Michelle, and I filmed it all. Josh edited this video together and Jason Masi was the big surprise of the proposal.
His voice is amazing and so full of soul. I love his covers but his original work is even better. I highly recommend his new album Life is Beautiful.
We were there so long that Mom found the winery cat!
And Jason even had the whole winery sing happy birthday to her. I love it!!!!!
The third vineyard on our tour was Dry Mill Vineyards and Winery. Mom loved the horse on the labels – the tasting room is a gorgeously refurbished stables.
All-in-all it was a successful day, and I think Mom really liked her birthday present!
