Apr 2014 09

The first weekend of April 2014 was the one of the first relatively nice weekends in a long time. No snow, no rain, not a cloud in the sky (although pretty windy and a little cold). So, of course I wanted to spend it on the wine trail. I had planned with my sister to take care of some wine pick-ups and hit a few of my standards, but on Friday afternoon I received an alert that a new winery was opening up on Saturday in Taylorstown, Virginia.  Creek’s Edge had announced a “soft opening” and so my plans quickly changed.cedge

My sister and I arrived there promptly at 12:30PM, and had the honor of being their very first customers (we should get a picture on the wall for that, right?).  We were greeted by the owner Tedd and his young daughter as we sat at the immaculately built bar made of walnut from trees grown on that very same property.  The vineyard is situated along the Catoctin Creek and between that property and another close by, they have more than 70 acres of grapes planted.
