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!
