Wolf Mountain Vineyards

Kristen, Crystal and I went to Wolf Mountain Vineyard for Sunday brunch and bluegrass.

The food was okay, better than most buffet food, nothing to write home about but good enough that I'd be happy to go back to at least enjoy the atmosphere. We ordered blood orange mimosas to start before heading to the buffet.

We had absolutely perfect weather; it was sunny but breezy and we enjoyed our brunch on the porch listening to live bluegrass.

The "food" item I most enjoyed was actually the beautiful coffee bar; I had two cups of Joe...with whipped cream of course :)

On the Menu:

-Romaine, Spinach, Hard boiled Egg, Candied Pecans, Tomato tossed in Vidalia Onion Vinaigrette
-House made Mini Biscuits, Sausage Gravy
-Three Cheese & Pimento Mac ‘n’ Cheese
-Southern Style Creamed Corn
-Pecan Crusted Trout
-Southern Fried Chicken
-Roasted Tomato, Havarti & Mushroom Casserole
-Carving Station: Maple Glazed Ham
-Dessert: Banana Pudding Trifle, Mini Key Lime Tarts and Cheesecakes, Chocolate Covered Strawberries (dessert by far was the most disappointing; banquet food at its worst.)

We then headed downstairs for a tasting. This was much better than I had expected; we did the standard tasting verses their more pricey estate tasting, but I was not disappointed by any of the wines and in fact wished that state law allowed me to bring a few bottles home with me!

We meandered inside and out for our tasting; taking our time so as to not be tipsy for the ride home.

After we finished we decided to stroll through the vines and take in the views. If the weather was right it would make a perfect spot for an outdoor wedding.

I was trying to be sneaky and get a shot of Kristen without being caught but I was busted!

We could have spent hours lounging on the decks, listening to the bluegrass and enjoying the gentle breezes; this was the south at its best, but alas we had to return to reality and head back to the city, but it sure was a great day.
