I am a woman. I have needs. So pass me the wine and if you ever want to see me in the best possible mood, buy me a bottle. What can I say? Screw it, (he he get it) I have no shame in the fact that a few sips makes me a little giddy. So, as soon as I found out we were celebrating my beautiful friend Ashley becoming Mrs. Meadows at a vineyard, you can imagine my excitement was through the roof!
It was just an absolutely wonderful afternoon at Arrington Vineyards. I loved celebrating Ashley. We tasted some amazing wine, showered her with gifts and gorged on some delicious cheese plates…
Arrington Vineyards is located at 6211 Patton Road in Arrington, TN 37014.
We started out by spoiling the future Mrs. with bridal presents. Then we all bought our own flight. The vineyard refers to these little treats as “picnic tastings”. We took them back to our outside picnic table and enjoyed the sunshine. I liked this option because it was very convenient for all of us to taste and enjoy our 4 wines at our very own pace. Plus, we were able to bypass waiting for a place at their tasting bar. They poured 2 ounces of each delicious wine into disposable glasses placed in a convenient carrying tray for only $14. There were also tasting notes and wine crackers included in the tray.
Another cool option, that I want to try in the future, is the Premier Experience. It begins with a guided walking tour of their barrel house and wine production facility and leads into their private wine loft. The loft overlooks their vineyards and the hills of the grounds. You are able to taste 5 of their award-winning wines, paired with gourmet cheeses and famous black raspberry chocolate truffles. This would be a great option to buy your wine connoisseur friend (hint, hint)…
This was my second visit to Arrington Vineyards and it was just as great, if not better as the first! My mother is a wine club member so she receives wine from this vineyard very often and it’s always a treat when she gives me a bottle. Their blackberry dessert wine is my favorite! There are a lot of benefits for being a club member including 20% off automated quarterly wine orders, a complimentary classic wine tasting and much more.
Today I left with a bottle of Scarlet cause you really should always keep a bottle of wine in the fridge for special occasions. You know, like a Wednesday?
Until next week,
