Wine tasting at Waltz Vineyards

A friend at work shared this story with me, and I would like to share it with you!

Since my husband was out of town on Saturday I thought I’d treat my son to lunch out at one of our favorite lunch spots – Garfield’s at the Best Western Eden Resort.  Lunch was great and the service, as always was superb!  We had their crab cake and rib special – which was their two specialty items on one plate.  No fillers in their crab at all and the ribs just fell off the bones.

Kim & Jan WaltzMy son said we should go to Waltz Vineyards since I had bragged about their wine to him and he never tasted it.  I am generally not spontaneous, but how many times would I get to have a special time with my son (who forgot his Blackberry – which made it even more special!)  As we were driving by the vineyards he couldn’t believe how perfectly aligned they were and how pristine they appeared.  He said they must have someone working 24/7 to keep them looking so perfect.  The tasting was such a nice experience – and the owners, Kim and Jan are so hospitable, making you feel right at home in their beautiful tasting room which features local artist’s work.

It was nice to see a group of girlfriends gather outside at the picnic table with a bottle of wine – a young couple having lunch at the tables with their glass of wine – every age group seemed to be having a great time.  Kim serves you a plate of local treats with your tasting – September Farm Cheese made in nearby Honey Brook (you have to try it!) as well as Wilbur chocolate and a local bread.  We ended up purchasing some of their award winning wines.  I know I can fill his Christmas stocking with a one stop visit to Waltz’s!
