Chateau Morrisette Bike Ride

I hope everyone is enjoying the Memorial Day today!

Yesterday we and friends took a trip to this wonderful nearby winery for a tasting and lunch.
Chateau Morrisette

Several Bikers were also enjoying the trip. That is hubby on the right.

The winery

The Chateau is just off the Blueridge Parkway.

Waiting to start tasting

We had the chance to taste 10 of their wines, but I wish to highlight the ones I liked best.

2006 Merlot- Rich plum and cherry flavors
2007 Pinot Noir- Strawberry and cherry aromas with earthy tones
2006 Cabernet Sauvignon- Berry and dark cherry, also earthy
The Black Dog- Blend of Cabernet, Chambourcin, and Merlot -very smooth semi dry!
Our Dog Blue- The best selling white in the states of VA and NC right now. A semi sweet Riesling Blend.

After the wonderful tasting we enjoyed the buffet. They featured many items, but I chose the Prime Rib with green beans and potatoes.

Not a great pic. I tend to pile a buffet plate too high!

The food was wonderful as well as the tasting and we hope to return soon since it is a hop, skip, and jump from home for us.

I recommend you try if you ever get the chance.
