Boordy Vineyards in MD

Some people do "wordless Wednesdays" and post photos without any text, others do "wine Wednesdays" and discuss wine related things. This post will be a little bit of each: a bunch of wine related photos and a some wine information.


A few months ago, my friend Cecilia told me she was invited to attend a wine tasting event at Boordy Vineyards in MD. Guess who got to go with Cecilia? This past Saturday, on a gorgeous most perfect fall day, Cecilia and I met up with Rachel, and the three of us headed out {ok, drove} to Boordy.

I'm not a huge fan of road trips. I get bored, antsy, and moody. Luckily, we stopped at a bagel place where I picked up a bagel with white fish salad and coffee (a very needed breakfast after a night of salsa dancing). Then, to my delight, Cecilia brought a Zumba music CD and Rachel was happy to listen to it as well! We chatted, got to know each other better and I might have hummed just a bit to Zumba songs and then to El Zol radio station.

And then we arrived: {the photo above is of me and Cecilia, the photo below on the left is of Rachel}










The wine tasting event took place in a barn: it was so pretty and cozy: little white Christmas lights, live music, tables with colorful table clothes and a food buffet.




One of my favorites was baked brie: what's not to like?


I was also a fan of desserts: pistachio, mango, chocolate/coffee and plum.


But of course the star of the afternoon was the wine! After all, Boordy winery has been in business for 65 years.


After sampling several varieties of wine with our food {I chose the white ones}, we went on a tour of the winery with Boordy's owner and CEO Rob Deford.






After the tour, and before heading back, I decided to sample TangoPeach wine: this was my favorite by far: crisp with a hint of peach, it reminded me of summer. And of course the bright label doesn't hurt.
