Friday afternoon was rainy here, so we decided it would be more fun to go on a little road trip than to paint the porch in the rain. First stop, with CL running through the rain, was
Hilltop Orchards and Furnace Brook Winery in Richmand, MA. They're primarily an orchard, selling apples and two varieties of hard cider. They also make several wines from Long Island grapes.
I figured a large percentage of my readers (like, maybe 1 or 2) would appreciate this aspect of Hilltop Orchards.
This is just a random sign we drove by, and I kinda liked it.
Final stop was Hudson-Chatham Winery in Ghent, NY. The grape vines in the background are Seyval Blanc, one of my favorites.
This is Carlo DeVito, the owner of the winery. He did the tastings, and we had a very enjoyable afternoon with him.
