Skywatch Friday = Winery Umbrellas
The other Friday Jack and I made a return visit to a winery we had been to last fall. Barrel Oak Winery is right off interstate #66 so it is very convenient to go to for a wine outing. In the above photo you see some of the many umbrellas and tables on the patio of the winery.
And when you are seated at the tables this is one of the views that you can see.
Jack and I like to buy a bottle of wine at the winery and go to the patio to watch the sunset.
Here is a view of the Barrel Oak's winery building, the adjacent patio and the parking lot. Quite frequently the winery will have cookouts for guests under that long white tent you see in the background. This winery also has Friday night movies under the stars for guests. It is a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
And here's the best part. This winery caters to dogs in all shapes and sizes. People are encouraged to bring their dogs along for the wine outing. This little brown dachshund was adorable and was hanging out with that big black lab. The owners of the winery have two big dogs of their own and they have given canine names to some of their wines. For instance, there is a Bow Wow Red wine.
I think this might be the home of the owners of the winery. Pretty rural setting.
Well, hope you enjoyed your virtual tour of a Virginia winery. Now please go visit some other Skywatch Friday memes by clicking here:
