Great Grapes in Reston, Virginia

DSC_0360(These guys are the mascots of the festival!)

I’m looking forward to this weekend!  My husband and I will be going to the Great Grapes~Wine, Arts and Food Festival in Reston, Virginia this Saturday, September 11.!  In July, Devon and I went to the same festival and had a blast!

DSC_0321The food was delicious, especially the Kerrygold cheese and

the vendors were great!



The wine delicious… (we especially loved this Meritage from Thanksgiving Farms!


With our taste testing rounds, we even discovered some new food items that we can (now) not live without!  This extra virgin olive oil puts others to shame!


When I was there, I had the chance to see old blogger friends like Strawberries in Paris and Sweet Mary and meet some new ones, Random Thoughts of a City Mouse and The Berry Bushel!


There will be another  blogger’s panel hosted by my friend Dara from Dining Dish/Baltimore Dining Examiner.


We will dish on our favorite restaurants, finding inspiration in blogging and of course, wine!

There is live music as well!  So, bring a blanket and your thirst and come join us at Great Grapes in Reston, Virginia!
