Let's Visit Otium Cellars!

Over the last few weeks, I've met several people who've visited a dozen or more VA wineries but have never visited or even heard of Otium Cellars, which is a shame because the setting--both inside and out--is wonderful.

Those of you who love horses will find it especially charming...

And the wine (Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Malbec, Blaufrankisch, etc...) is fantastic.

Outside food is allowed...and so are dogs!  So feel free to bring bread, cheese, and your furry friends.

A tasting is $10 (check out the website for a description of their wines: http://otiumcellars.com/), and I expect we'll be purchasing a few bottles to enjoy on the premises.  I'm a wine club member, so I should be able to get a discount on some bottles, but we can work all of that out when we get there.

The winery is best enjoyed on a sunny day, but even if it's raining on the 4th, the inside is nice and cozy.

If you are available to carpool, or need a ride, please leave a message in the comments below.

It'll be fun, so I hope a lot of people can come out!

    Did everybody from both groups who still said they were attending simply not show up? I had a really hard time a couple of days ago when I attended an event at a place that claimed handicap access. I just didn't want to take a chance on another place with which I wasn't familiar. I would really like to go to this winery sometime in the future when I can walk again.

      That's too bad. Hey there are a few wine festivals coming up that may be handicap accessible (?) and sound like they might be worth checking out. The Mount Vernon wine fest and tour & the VA wine fest in Centreville. New to the area so I'm not sure about either but am happy to help plan if anyone thinks it's a good idea.

      In fairness to Sam at Otium, her exact reply to my question about handicap access was: 'The tasting room is at ground level. There is a small lip to get into the building but we would be happy to help!' At the time, I chose to interpret this as something I could manage with my knee scooter. I just chickened out today after my difficulty a couple of days ago.

    Hi Kel. Many apologies. This sounds like such a fun event but I'm stuck finishing a final paper for my school program today. Excited about this group though and looking forward to future events!

      No problem -- Thanks for letting me know. Good luck with the paper. By the way, I like the new picture :-)

    I'm finding the knee scooter to be very tiring, see you at future events.

    I may attend this event instead of the 27 April tour. Logistics play a big part here. I live in Leesburg but have heard good things about the mansion. On the fence...

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
