A few days ago, Maybelle found a leaf that had fallen to the ground. And then another, and then in just a few seconds, she had a whole handful. Fall is coming, I thought, the end of summer is near and school will be starting soon. It’s time to buy new clothes for A.P.; time to try and find his backpack, time to pull the sweaters out of the back of the closet; time to schedule a tour at the vineyard.
We all have our back to school rituals.
The first falling leaf reminds me it’s time to call Fenn Valley and arrange for a tour. OK I lied; I got excited a few weeks ago during our ‘cold’ snap and already called.
Depending on which type of tour you choose, you will either hang around in the winery and sample wine, or you pile into a wagon and sample wine. It’s like a hayride for adults, but with wine instead of apple cider. Either way, it ends well. It is your business who you go with – I am taking my husband but it is a great trip out with friends or even by yourself.
If you’re interested, call soon before everyone else notices the leaves have started to fall; these tours fill up quickly!
