When I was on vacation at a family reunion in Virginia Beach, I learn about a very cool Winery in Clarksville Tennessee, where one of my relatives works. Now you all know how much I want you to get out and visit local vineyards, they are great places to learn about and enjoy wine.
However today I wanted to point out that this vineyard is a little bit special in the way they support our military,
They do special bottling’s for different parts of the military. I sampled a bottle of “Rendezvous with Destiny” for the 101st Airborne Division and was hopping to try “STRIKE” Barrelhead Red in honor of the 502nd Infantry Regiment.
If you visit their website http://www.beachavenwinery.com/# you’ll see a man carving a barrel head, all military edition bottling’s come from one of these special hand carved barrels, once the wine is finished the barrel top is remove to a place of honor on the wall in the tasting room.
And the wine is very good too. So lift a glass and salute a vet or active duty serviceperson who gives you the ability to enjoy your freedoms. And give thanks such people still exist!
