For many years now Eliza and I have preferred to slow down and take our time on road trips rather than feeling rushed to get to our destination. We like to visit tucked away places. Do a little shopping. Or enjoy a drink. This usually adds about a day of traveltime to any of our trips.
On a wet, cool February day in 2020, while making our way home from visiting friends in the state of Georgia, we stopped into Chisholm Vineyards in rural Virgina.
One of the advantages of visiting these places on odd travel days is we usually arrive just after they open or during a non peak business hour. This means we often speak to the proprietor, learn the story about the business, and get a bit more service than the average customer. This was the case with these vineyards.
Based on Chisholm Vineyard's Instagram account I can see that their grounds are far more photogenic in the summer months. We'll have to make a point to stop there again soon.
